Autumn Winter Sensory Story

Autumn Winter Sensory Story

This is a sensory story I created for my topic 'seasons'. This was written for a PMLD/ CLDD class. 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.

Daily Living Skills-Cooking Workbooks Bundle Pack

Daily Living Skills-Cooking Workbooks Bundle Pack

Here’s a cost-saving way to create a cooking unit for your students. Begin with KITCHEN BASICS—and teach about safety; cleanliness; cookware, bake-ware and tool vocabulary; measurement and kitchen organization. (Pgs. 41) Add NUTRITION—and have students learn about food groups, a balanced diet, the food-in/energy-out equation, vitamins and minerals, and low-cost/high-nutrition foods. (Pgs. 42) Then use GROCERY SHOPPING—to shop for the foods you learned about in Nutrition as students learn about grocery story layout, reading price tags, unit pricing, coupons, list-making, and food storage. (Pgs. 40) Put it all together with MAKING MEALS—this video-modeled “cook-book” uses the low-cost/high-nutrition foods from Nutrition to create easy one-pan meals and then helps students create their own variations of the recipes in step-by-step lessons that empower students to cook and bake. Download all the videos for free off this website and you’ll have a comprehensive, dynamic unit plan for your students. (Pgs. 43) Videos in this series are: Making Oatmeal, Microwave Hot Dogs, Microwave Mac ‘N Cheese, Making Microwave Burritos, Microwave Popcorn, One-Pan Pasta, One-Pot Soup, and One-Pan Cake. Like all Daily Living Skills workbooks, this series is written on a high third/low fourth grade level and targeted to the mild-to-moderate population (although, you’ll see in the ratings, many teachers of students with moderate-to-severe disabilities have used the program successfully.) All vocabulary is defined immediately in context so students build confidence in the information. Pages are light and airy with lots of bullet-points and pictures, and are set with a tone that is friendly, yet respects the sensibilities of this age group. Every book contains an answer key and Parent Letter explaining what transition skills you are addressing along with suggestions for parent follow-up at home in compliance with federal mandates. Lessons can easily be used in a “buy today/use today” fashion with no training and little preparation (except “Making Meals.”) Or, if you are a newer teacher or new to special education, the DAILY LIVING SKILLS TEACHERS MANUAL gives information on classroom organization and program set-up along with Indicator 13 support and a variety of written ITP goals for each workbook. (You do not need to buy the Teacher’s Manual—it is offered at the request of some teachers.) If you are unfamiliar with this series, download the free workbook, "Doing Laundry" (on this site) to get a feel for the format and tone of this series, or preview the pages of the individual titles which are also offered on this site. Good luck!

This is a simple rhyming song I created for my non verbal Autistic son .

This is a simple animal song that I created to encourage my non verbal son to sing. we have sung it together for many years, he is now 18 .He may not say very much but I found the use of simple songs very good at gaining and getting him to interact with me whilst at the same time teaching him about animals. The lyrics are all written by myself and most of the photos were taken at Busch Gardens. It can be used for with Neuro typical young children also.
