There are two versions of this resource (PCS, SymbolStix). This is the SymbolStix Version (n2y).
Jump on the Trampoline is one of several vest displays designed to add visual support to Circle Time/Classroom routines. This offering is periodically observed in classrooms serving children on the autism spectrum and has the benefit of allowing the circle time routine to be a bit more active for overactive students. Each student is given a turn to jump on the trampoline while the remainder of the class sings. At the end of the song, students are encouraged to shout, "Stop". A single message VO communicator programmed with the message 'stop' is a nice addition to the routine as it promotes greater engagement (you never know when you will be called upon to hit the switch to insert that time-dependent repetitive line, "stop").
This resource should be personalized with photo faces of your students. When a student claims a turn or is selected for a turn, their image is velcroed to the rectangle that can be moved up and down to simulate jumping. A chair to the side signals 'who's on deck' for the next turn. The manipulatives for this resource are colored to allow teachers to work on color concepts. The resource can also be used to work on the concept of boy/girl.
