Positive Eye Idea 10: Activity Board

Gwyn McCormack from Positive Eye has generously submitted a series of ‘Top Ideas’, which we will be sharing each month. You can read her introduction to the series and other posts here.

This specific series is centred around the importance of concept development when teaching children who have a vision impairment. The ‘Top Ideas’ can be utilised by your child’s educational setting or by a parent wanting to give a little extra help with learning from home.

Idea 10: Activity Board

Images show two boards with numbered cards on them.

Create an activity board using a large piece of cardboard covered in black card and edged with bright high contrast Duct tape.

Add a line of Gripping Stuff to create a place to do sums, write sentences with word cards, make patterns, follow a tactile timetable.

The child can complete the task and show their ability at numeracy instead of a possibly tiring task of writing the answer.

Idea 11: Activity Board (2)

Images show two boards one with numbered cards and one with blank cards.

Create an activity board using a large piece of cardboard covered Gripping Stuff and edged with bright high contrast Duct tape. Cut out black card squares and add a square of Gripping Stuff to each black square.
