Create-A-Scene mats address a variety of concepts in an errorless or creative learning format.
Create-A-Scene mats come in full color, and black & white (worksheet) versions.
Additionally, these mats cover skills such as fine motor practice, language skills, independent skills, etc.
Some examples include:
Set up the board with the corresponding number of Velcro dots to pieces, placed in logical places on the mat.
For example, the fairy scene contains 3 items that fly and 7 items that should be placed on the ground. Place 3 Velcro dots anywhere in the sky, and 7 Velcro dots anywhere on the ground. Allow the child (or student) to attach the items to the Velcro dots.
Note: If your child (or student) can not yet differentiate which items should go in the sky vs. the ground. You can start with the three items that should go in the sky already on the board, thus making it a fully errorless task.
Independent Task or Center Activity:
Give the board and pieces to your student and ask them to put the pieces on the scene.
Ask the child (or student) to “tell you a story” as they place the items on the board.
Note: You may want to use reusable tape instead of Velcro for this task. This will allow the board to be completely customizable.
Following Directions/Positional Words:
Describe where you would like the child (or student) to place the pieces. For example, you might give the direction to “Put the chicken IN the barn.”
Ask the child (or student) who, what, where questions about the different animals or objects they will place onto the scene.
Cut, Color, and Glue (no-prep) Worksheet:
The worksheet style scene was created to align with each Create-A-Scene mat. Use these sheets to practice learned skills, for fine motor practice, give as homework, or use as a whole/small group/independent activity.
