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 12: Facial Expressions
Image 1 shows a variety of faces with different facial expressions. Image 2 shows a Lazy Sue with the faces on, with talking pegs.
Make Facial Expression games using Positive Eye’s facial expression picture cards and the activity board shared in idea 10.
