Includes 25 cards with easy exercises.
Each exercise is designed to help children get the sensory input or muscular work they need to accomplish their daily tasks in the classroom.
The Drive Thru Menu Exercises Program is for use with students in any elementary school classroom or in the home and can be introduced by a teacher, a parent or a therapist.
They appeal to children because they are easy to learn, easy to do and best of all: they are fun!
A must for therapists and teachers!
A THERAPRO ORIGINAL! The Drive Thru Menus Exercise Programs were developed by Tere Bowen Irish, an occupational therapist, with almost 30 years of experience in pediatrics and mental health. The programs are intended to provide engaging and meaningful exercises in situations where time is limited, in much the same way that drive thru restaurants can provide food for those without much time. They are ideal for classroom activities. Learn while you exercise! Includes twenty-five cards each containing a script of how to teach the exercise along with several suggested academic challenges. For instance, spell words from the vocabulary list while performing Angels in the Snow or count by 2's while doing an "angel." Now Mix and Match by trying these "academic challenges" with another exercise - this Mix and Matching of exercises and academic challenges creates hundreds of possible activities. Beautifully illustrated and VERY effective for working within an inclusive model. Teachers and therapists have tested these for years and experienced great success in their students performance. A must for therapists and teachers!
