Use this box to teach turn taking by having your little learner find an item and pick it up with the clothespin and then take your turn and pick up an item.
By doing this, the child you are working with learns to wait, pay attention to social cues and take turns.

Build your child or students’ receptive language skills by asking him to find a specific item, such as “duck”, and pick it up with the clothespin.
