Five Senses Literature Lessons

These curriculum guides are written by an Occupational Therapist and designed to be effective for children with learning differences or sensory issues (though they can certainly work with neurotypical children as well.) The lessons center on children's books and cover cover all major subject areas. They include lots of hands-on, developmentally appropriate activities. Currently, there are materials available for preschool and early elementary ages, and more guides are coming to cover higher level learning (up to about middle school level.)
