I love playing stacking blocks in therapy, but my students often got frustrated with how easy it is to knock over (and some of my students would knock it over or bump the table on purpose). My students love to use the blocks by themselves, so I decided to create mats to build on while practicing language! This is how Language Builders was born! I love having game companion mats to go with all of my favorite games to use in therapy. I also added Mini Language Builders Mats to use with mini tumbling tower sets (I get mine on Amazon).

You will get 2 files with this download: Regular Language Builder Mats and Mini Mats

⭐ This product is similar to my Language Blocks product (see link below). It has some of the same targets but is designed for students who may not be able to play the traditional un-stacking game. The products are similar but the layout and game play are different!
