Teachers can make learning more interactive and fun with math, reading and character-building activities that kids of all ages enjoy. Didax is a leading company with a variety of books, board games and special education tools that help create a more accessible and inclusive learning environment for students of all skill levels. Staples carries a broad range of toys, workbooks and software that are affordable additions to any classroom or homeschooling setup.

Didax Unifix Cubes are a Versatile Teaching Tool
Unifix cubes are colorful and stackable interlocking cubes that make basic counting and reading lessons more visually stimulating and easier to understand. Available in a range of quantities, classroom kits and colors, Unifix blocks are fantastic for hands-on learning or daily play sessions. As students work with the cubes, they can create patterns, assemble words, practice measurement and start to grasp more complicated math concepts like multiplication and division. Teachers may also supplement lessons with worksheets and charts that can be used for group-based math and reading drills.

Tactile Sandpaper Cards are Ideal for Special Education Classrooms
As part of a special education or early intervention program, tactile letter and number cards engage the senses as children see and feel how characters are formed. Suited for use in preschool through early elementary grades, regular tracing practice at home or in the classroom can gently guide students as they learn to read and write names, dates and form basic sentences. By using this sensory approach, students can more easily develop an understanding of the alphabet and counting concepts.

Games and Math Manipulatives Make Learning Fun
Puzzles, board games and manual counting tools provide additional opportunities to focus on spelling, money math and object recognition. Parents can practice rhyming, vowel sounds and social skills at home or while traveling with youngsters. Teachers can use Common Core flashcards in head-to-head competitions that get students to think fast as they drill through key subjects. Many children gain a deeper understanding with visual demonstrations of advanced number concepts while older teens and young adults with developmental delays can learn valuable life skills by learning how to count money, recognize safety signs and tell time through simulated living scenarios.

Workbooks and Teaching Guides Help Create Positive Schooling Environments
In addition to Unifix board books, math and reading materials, many workbooks and guides help educators teach the value of self-esteem and speaking out against bullying. Children gain academic confidence, build character, develop stronger communication skills and learn to set goals through self-esteem building activities. Particularly important in an academically diverse classroom, teachers can help every student feel accepted and valued just the way they are. In a technology-driven world, kids and teens benefit from learning about acceptable and inappropriate behavior among their peers online and offline while arming them with tools for real-world conflict resolution. Posters, anti-bullying pledge forms and informational handouts supplement home and classroom discussion and group feedback sessions that parents, teachers and students can apply to life experiences beyond the classroom as well.
