Learn to Move, Move to Learn!
Sensorimotor Early Childhood Activity Themes
Jam-packed with creative theme-based group lessons, this resource follows a sensory integrated developmental sequence consisting of seven activities related to the theme. For maximum flexibility, suggestions for adaptation and modification for individual students are included, along with instructions for how to develop additional lessons. The companion DVD, Learn to Move, Move to Learn: Dinosaurs
, which you can find in related products, gives a first-hand view of real children engaged in a dinosaur theme-based sensory motor lesson and thus sparks ideas for other similar activities.
