Introduce your students to the basic spatial concepts and prepositions with this activity for speech therapy and special education.

Please note that this resource includes a suitable option for distance learning (Boom Cards).

On top of the activity board, the student is asked the question "where is the ...". He must choose the correct preposition card to describe the situation. The visual sentences help reinforce communication skills.

What is included?

There are 54 different situation cards :

  • 6 "in" cards
  • 12 "on" cards
  • 12 "under" cards
  • 12 "behind" cards
  • 12 "in front of" cards

The cards feature 16 objects for a great diversity of situations. This will help with the generalization of the concepts.

⭐In addition to the printable activity, access 6 decks of Boom Cards (for a total of 180 Boom cards). There are 54 unique Boom cards. They repeat themself across the different decks, the difference between the decks is the number of answers the student has to choose from (from 2 to 5 answers). Starting with only two possible answers, your students won't be overwhelmed by the activity. You can build on their new skills and offer them more choices as they progress.

This activity works amazingly well with non-verbal kids or slow auditory processing children who rely on visual clues for learning (autism or other disabilities, for speech therapy, ABA therapy, or any one-on-one setting...).

Boom Cards are self-grading, cloud-based digital resources. Boom Cards play on modern browsers (released in the last three years, Android, iPads, iPhones, and Kindle Fires). Free player apps are also available. Not sure if your browser is modern enough? Try a free Boom Cards deck first.

Boom Cards live in the cloud. They are NOT downloadable. This means that you need an internet connection to play the cards.
