Sensory Story

Sensory stories are stories which have different sensory stimuli associated with each part.

In school, during a half term we use the same sensory story to give the children opportunities to build up a recognition of the structure and to begin to anticipate different parts.

You could do this story with them every day if you like to see if they begin to develop these skills.
