Welcome to Rhyming Multi-sensory Stories!
Step by step multi-sensory stories for parents, guardians, grandparents, siblings, child-minders, early years workers, teachers, HLTA’s, teaching assistants, speech therapists, play therapists, care home workers, home support workers, activity coordinators, storytellers, librarians and anyone with an interest in exploring storytelling through the senses in a fun and engaging way!
Sensory stories immerse the listener by telling a story using words and sensory stimuli (story props). Listening to rhyme and rhythm supports memory and aids learning playing a crucial role in language development, the learning of concepts, communication and early literacy skills such as listening and attention skills, anticipation, turn-taking and making choices.
The stories are adapted to meet a range of abilities and needs from curious pre-schoolers to teenagers with complex needs. They can be used in mainstream and SEN schools as the combination of sensory stimuli, rhyme and the repetitive structure of the stories forms an excellent base on which to scaffold learning. The stories can also be used in care home settings as a tool to inform on care needs.
