Little Mermaid Multi sensory story

This is a multi sensory, plain English version of The Little Mermaid.

The story is based on the Ladybird Favourite tales version. It has been rewritten in simple language. The equipment is detailed so you can make a shopping list!
The multi sensory elements are described throughout the story, but feel free to adapt to suit your needs, or if you have a better idea!

I will be using the resource with secondary age, SEN (SLD / MLD/ complex needs) students for Literacy lessons.

The ‘chapters’ are quite short, so each chapter can be used as a sensory story. I plan to do one chapter a week with my class.

The use of multi sensory input helps students to retain and understand the information within the story. For more information about why sensory stories are beneficial Google Joanna Grace.

I hope you enjoy using this story with your students!
