Stage 1 (7-9yrs)
These Special Education Resources For Kids are designed to help reinforce and start to build on the foundation concepts and language taught in the games listed under Preschool & Early Stage (4-6yrs) while still providing fun and motivation to learn.
Learning at this Development Stage should still be done in a social manner but with less teacher or parent input to improve independent learning.
Once assembled, the games and activities can be played repetitively, reinforcing their learning and language, but also building your child’s confidence and love for learning new things – which is what Special Education Resource For Kids strives to help parents do!

People In My Community Bingo Game
This topic is commonly covered in schools and is a great way to build awareness of safety and helpful people around your child. Learning to label people and the items associated with that person not only expands their vocabulary but is a great way to teach Who? and What? questions also. (So instead of saying 'the man', your child will say 'the policeman'). Most bingo sets give you only 4 playing boards but this we've built 6 - making it ideal for classroom group use.
People In My Community Memory Game
Building associations helps children with memory retrieval and this topic is a great one to start with - especially if your child is into dress-ups. Labeling people with their proper name and the items associated with that person will expand their vocabulary and build confidence in using the titles when communicating. A list of other activities is provided including games to help teach Who? and What?
