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.

Feelings / emotions activity for social skills

Feelings / emotions activity for social skills

A resource I made for a mixed group of ks1 / ks2 children with autism / social communication needs. Aim is to develop greater understanding of feelings and to begin to develop awareness of other's feelings, also turn taking and attention and listening. Resource includes a feelings poster and 18 cards describing situations that have happened to an imaginary child - e.g. 'She has a wobbly tooth'. We discuss the various feelings an how children are feeling today. Cards are placed face down and children take turns to turn cards over. They consider how the person may be feeling. More able groups could be prompted / questioned to consider would everyone feel that way in that situation (some people can't stand having wobbly teeth, others get excited...) further developing theory of mind and understanding that people can feel differently about situations.

Lamington: An Australian cake - Visual Recipe and supplementary resources.

Lamington: An Australian cake - Visual Recipe and supplementary resources.

Lamington - A lamington is an Australian cake, made from squares of sponge cake coated in an outer layer of chocolate sauce and rolled in desiccated coconut. This notebook is designed for the students to use it as a visual sequence when cooking. They have all the ingredients and utensils needed and then an easy to follow recipe. It has an inbuilt shopping activity so that the cooking can be integrated into a shopping program. Within the shopping part which encourages literacy skills, students can choose what they will buy and then make their own shopping list by either writing it or sticking the associated visual onto their shopping list. There are also some integrated literacy skills to match the ingredients as well as some writing sheets. As a Lamington is Australian, there is a small activity studying the Australian flag. It was created for students with special needs (SEN) but can be used as a valuable resource for early years literacy.
