The MagneTalk Barrier Game Stand is a two-sided, tabletop magnetic barrier board with a dry erase surface.
It is a useful tool when working with children who need practice or help with a range of language and listening skills, such as following directions, storytelling and more.
Have children retell a story they have heard or create story scenes, demonstrate their knowledge of basic concepts, and more by simply following a sequence of oral directions.
Two children can sit opposite each other, listen to and follow the directions, and then compare their scenes or drawings to your actual instructions. Immediately pinpoint strengths and weaknesses in whatever skill you may be targeting.
Give children the chance to act as the teacher by letting them give directions for others to follow, which in turn builds confidence and self-esteem. Have the "teacher" decide if the children using the barrier board followed his/her directions correctly.
The barrier board can be used along with your own magnets and dry erase markers.
This barrier stand can be purchased for individual for use or for use with all Magnetalk Match-up activity games.
