Creating Multisensory Environments Practical Ideas for Teaching and Learning By Christopher Davies
Multi-sensory environments in the classroom provide a wealth of stimulating learning experiences for all young children whose senses are still under development. Creating Multisensory Environments: Practical Ideas for Teaching and Learning is a highly practical guide to low-cost, easy to assemble multi-sensory environments.
With a step-by-step guide to each activity, these creative learning environments focus on multi-sensory experiences and:
- are designed to stimulate all the sensory channels – auditory, visual, kinaesthetic, olfactory and gustatory
- include suggestions for extension or differentation depending on the abilities of your pupils, or the time available
- encourage creative thinking and learning, and development of social and emotional skills
- feature clear learning outcomes, linking with P-Scales for children with special education needs
- can be set up in your classroom or school hall in just a matter of minutes or be a semi-permanent feature in a small area of the classroom, convenient for use at any given moment.
