Peg Boards with Color Pegs are the perfect size for easy storage and carrying and are a safe teaching aid with smooth edges. The child can develop creativity, hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills through practical play. By exploring different patterns and designs, children can also learn basic math, color sorting, coordinate systems and patterning.
Common Core State Standards Alignment: Counting & Cardinality, Measurement & Data
Learning Style: Tactile, Visual
Basic Concepts – Colors, numbers, and shapes help with pattern play. Students can practice color recognition, counting, and beginning math skills through grouping and sorting the pegs by quantity or color. Challenge students to make patterns like green-purple-green-purple.
Fine Motor – Students can practice hand-eye coordination when stacking or unstacking the pegs in the mat.
Fine Motor – Pincer grasp and functional finger movements used for lacing help strengthen the muscles in the hand needed to write and perform daily living skills, like getting dressed and brushing teeth. Lacing will also engage the student in cooperative hand movements by holding the mat in one hand and lacing the string with the other
