I have just finished the on-line PD on sensory integration called “The Traffic Jam in my Brain” By Gen Jereb. It was very thought provoking. Today I decided that we would make snakes from long socks and wheat. This idea of theses snakes is to use them in play and circle time for ‘heavy work’. Heavy work is one of the strategies we use to regulate our ‘engines’ so that we are at the right place for the task at hand.
The children love their snakes. They played with them all afternoon. They will be able to take them home at the end of the year.
