This is a motivating activity that gets a student to practice using their monocular to scan for targets (paper friends) with a specific feature.
This activity takes place over two lessons within two grocery stores of your students choosing. Scanning, blur interpretation, monocular use, soliciting assistance, and room orientation patterns are just a few skills that can be incorporated into this lesson.
Getting a young student to be interested in scanning is easiest when they do not even know they are doing it.
It is the traditional Red Light, Green Light, but I was sneaky and incorporated as much O&M into the lesson as possible.
An O&M picture book can be used to increase a students independence with orientation when traveling a route by relying less on instructor prompts about which direction to go next.
designed these activities for my last lessons with students, but these ideas can be used anytime a student develops a new skill and is ready to learn something new.
This is a sit down lesson designed to review scanning patterns for street crossings in both directions.
