Room 17 Home Learning Ideas

Hello,

Please find below a list of activities / ideas from Room 17’s teacher that you can complete with your child.  Feel free to dip in and out of these as you wish.

 

If your child uses a communication system then please try to use it daily with them. If you need some advice about this then please send me an email.

 

Life Skills:

  • Help to make or prepare meals

  • Use a knife to practice spreading, toast, crackers…
  • Practice cutting toast, soft fruits/veg (using hand over hand or with very close supervision)
  • Pouring – pouring liquid or dry foods from one container to another
  • Help to wash and dry dishes
  • Putting away dishes
  • Making simple and meaningful choices (usually from a choice of two) using the objects as reference

 

Literacy

 

Health and Wellbeing:

  • Going for a walk in an open area and discussing what you see and hear along the way
  • Cosmic kids yoga – a lot of episodes are on Youtube and there are greater mindfulness videos too if you need to relax

Sensory:

 

  • If you have an instruments at home then play along to your child’s favourite music – if you don’t have instruments then why not make a few together, for example take a plastic bottle, fill with dried beans (or something similar) and shake!
