    is it even possible with a group of children you don't know?
    my understanding is SST involves the adult knowing the child's interests and understanding and lots of time ...
  5. I would tend to go for a problem-solving activity if wanting to impress.
  6. Ideas!!!??? Please! I would be eternally grateful! Any area and any objective! x

    Is it for an interview?
  8. Why don't you run a few of your own ideas past us?

    Perhaps we may then be able to comment on those and help you further.
  9. What age/year group? Any clue of children's ability? I know you don't know the children but you can often roughly guess the children's general ability by the school/area e.g. if its high EAL (stereotypical i know but if you don't know the children thats often all you can go on)
