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 19: Story Scenes
The images show story scenes, including a sock puppet cow, a farm scene, animals, vehicles etc.
Create key scenes from the story and make a sock puppet to tell the story. Place against a black screen propped up on the desk and encourage the child to play a part. This story scene is from OTIS about a tractor and a calf.
Make the child with SEND the starting point for planning, NOT the ADD-ON
