Essential Star Wars Toys for Inclusive Teachers

Use the Force

Seeing as my most popular post is Star Wars quotes I thought why not tap into the force and write a post on Using star wars toys, games and lightsabers in the classroom. All these have links to the products but my favourite way to gather resources is to ask fellow Jedi teachers/friends to remember my little rebel alliance when having a pre-Christmas clear out.

Prepare you must.

As I use these I will update this post with the resources I make to go with them. Sometimes playing is enough but we can often enhance the value of our resources by creating structured activities. This is especially valuable for PECS or AAC users.

The Resources.

Mr Potato Head Set of three- Buy Here.

So many opportunities for PECS use, sharing, commenting and interaction. Use a communication board to structure requests.
