Hello! I wonder if anyone could help me with my mind mapping? I am to teach a class of PNI pupils who are the more able in upper KS2. Their academic abilities range from P8 to L4 and their physical abilities range from limited movement and vocal communication to full faculties. The remit of the lesson is to improve children's understanding of friendships and relationships through an interactive story. Finding a story isn't too tricky - its all in the execution! I currently teach mainstream so I'm more than usually nervous about this 20-minute lesson. The more I think about it, the more I realise that most of the responses I expect from the children in my class rely on them drawing/writing something on a mini whiteboard, holding something up, or of course the old-fashoined verbal response. This lesson will really challenge my ability to mix that up and I was hoping someone would help me bounce ideas. My ideas so far include: -Having them hold & wear (with or without assistance) props and costumes; this can include selecting appropriate items and props to show understanding of a character's emotions -Matching activities with colours, "buttons", ribbons etc for parts of the story and showing understanding -Joining in with rhymes and repeated phrases I know I'll need to aim questions appropriately at the various children, and they will be giving me responses in a variety of ways. Can anyone throw out any additional ideas, or maybe even suggest a cracking story they've thought of? I do have a few I am picking between so I'm not struggling for a story, but y'know, every little helps Thanks in advance!
