Life Skills Sensory Stories

Here you will find all our life skill linked sensory stories. Unlike some of our other stories these are written to meet a specific element of the skills a child will need as they grow up to enhance their level of independence. Written for stage rather than age these rhyming sensory stories should engage most learners whatever their educational need. Life skills are essential elements of any curriculum from EYFS to post-16. Feel free to adapt these to meet your needs. All are provided as free PDF Booklets with suggested sensory resources and suggested proprioceptive activities. I hope you enjoy our life skills sensory stories.

###This post is a work in progress more stories will be added shortly#### Due to the Covid-19 situation I have yet to deliver the majority of these so we are a little light on images. Please bear with us. We really appreciate any facebook or pinterest shares.

Sorting Socks

We need to find the matching socks
In a race against the clock

Let’s rummage around in this old dark drawer,
I’ve found a green sock. Let’s find some more.

Help me find the matching socks
In a race against the clock

A stripy one, you star sock locator!

In a race against the clock

Inside the machine, give the drum a whirl
A scrunched up blue sock let it uncurl.

Inside the toy box, move aside those cars
There in corner a sock covered in stars

Help me find the matching socks
In a race against the clock

We need to crawl under the dusty bed
Look over there, a sock, bright red.

Help me find the matching socks
In a race against the clock

There is still one sock missing where can it be?
It’s hidden under the cushion on the settee!

Now we have found the missing socks
I knew we could do it. We beat the clock!
