Finding Fiona Sensory Story

Finding Fiona Sensory Story

This is a sensory story I created for my topic 'stories'. This was written for a PMLD class of pupils. I have written it with the sentence, the sense, the sensory experience and what I and my TAs are looking for and observing throughout the sessions. Repeat story throughout the term to enable the child to develop anticipation, investigation, awareness, preference and much more. Could also be used in an EYFS KS1 class. Please read our Sensory Dispensary blog for further information on how and why to use this resource: http://sensorydispensary.blogspot.co.uk/. We blog about planning, resources, research, events, CPD, reviews and much more.

MACS Charity Assembly for Secondary

MACS Charity Assembly for Secondary

Two assemblies which focus on the work done by the MACS charity (Microphthalmia, Anophthalmia and Coloboma Support). MACS is a charity for young people who were born without eyes or with underdeveloped eyes, so the assemblies focus on the importance of valuing our vision and how we should treat everyone with respect and without prejudice. The assemblies focus on the work MACS do to help and support young people. One of the assemblies is to raise awareness of the work MACS does and the other is for schools interested in fundraising for the charity. These are especially useful for schools teaching topics on prejudice and discrimination and also schools with a child who uses MACS' services.

Rewards Cards for Upper Elementary/Middle School (7 Pages, 42 Cards!)

Rewards Cards for Upper Elementary/Middle School (7 Pages, 42 Cards!)

This set of student rewards cards features themes and pictures appropriate for grades 4-7! Students love the bright visuals and easy-to-identify themes. Bold and exciting cards make the rewards more fun! Rewards and illustrations are geared towards to older students. This set includes variations of timed rewards (such as listen to music, games, computer, social time, extra recess) and a variety of other student-approved rewards such as lunch with a teacher, choice seat, leave class early, choice jobs, and more! Pick and choose the reward cards that will work best for your students, and use these fun cards as tangible incentives. Two golden "grand prize" cards for you to determine-are included. Suggested Use: Place Rewards Cards in a "Rewards Bag or Rewards Box". Students can choose a reward when you "catch them" doing something good (behavior or academic). Remind students this happens sometimes when you observe them (not always!) and that rewards will not be given to students who do something they are supposed to then ask for a reward. Remember to pick and choose which rewards are appropriate for your students. For some rewards, make sure all involved teachers are aware if it affects them in any way (such as joining a class, 5 minutes late etc.) For extra durability and damage resistance, it is strongly recommended that cards are laminated before use (with the exception of quick-use and discard activities). Use a points or token system to earn a choice Reward Card or choose a card from bag/box. Use Rewards Cards as prizes in Study Group/Homework Club/After School games to make studying for a test more exciting for students. Let all participating students get a reward, but let the winners get to choose first. Use Reward Cards as holiday/birthday gifts. Use Reward Cards for random trivia, tough study questions, or extra effort acknowledgement. If using the Golden Grand Prize cards, decide what that prize is and how it is won. Make it special and distinguished from the other cards. Develop your own system using Illumismart Rewards Cards!
