When I thought about modifying the classic game of Twister my main goal was to give all of my students a way to play a very visual game despite what their visual impairment is (and who doesn’t love a good round of Twister?!).
I am visually impaired and had O&M instruction very infrequently as a child. As a result of this, I had gaps in my skills when I went away to graduate school. I discussed the problem with my instructor who devised this creative lesson.
A fun puzzle activity to teach and review route shapes with students.
The three qualities that make an object or sound a landmark: unique, distinct, and permanent. First I had to translate these into words a second grader would understand. Special, easy to find, and always there.
One issue I have with some students is their lack of motivation to participate in lessons. Here is a possible solution.
This lesson is a simple and fun way to introduce and practice using protective techniques using materials that can be useful for other activities as well.
This is an activity designed for a preschool student learning upper body protective technique.
