Wish I would have thought of this!!! Designed for students with special needs. Each child has his or her own personal space, which can be outfitted with any sensory comforts that the child might need. Also, one or two of these in a library center would be a super-cool semi-private space for any kid. COOL!
I wrote sight words on the flat part of the bubblewrap and when they read the word correctly, they got to pop the bubble! It was sight word recognition and an occupational therapy/finger strengthening activity. You could do letter recognition, number recognition, math facts, etc.
Higher Order questioning for students to ask each other
Math tub idea: Get two ice trays from the dollar spot at Target, write 2-digit numbers on white labels for each hole, and kids toss a cube in each tray and add numbers together on recording sheet or whiteboard. They think it's so fun!!
Helping kids with LD, ADHD or other differences understand body language is good; But also understand that some kids are challenged by such social norms. if a kid is shuffling his feel, making random hand motions and looking around the room does not mean he's not listening, it just means he might have ADHD, or other difference.
