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 13: Story Bags to Go
Image 1 shows Gwyn wearing a shiny rucksack. Image 2 a clear rucksack filled with various toy dolls.
Story Bags to Go are the best fun and so easy to create.
Take one small rucksack and fill it with the real objects or models that represent the child’s favourite story. Add credit cards with labels with the key words and off you go.
Write your own story about your child’s adventures!
Make the child with SEND the starting point for planning, NOT the ADD-ON
