Multi-Sensory Stories For Key Vocabulary
These two super simple sensory stories cover just one concept each. Hot and Cold. This vocabulary is reinforced by everyday objects that are cold and hot. You shouldn’t need any expensive resources and can adapt each line to fit what you have available.
Please visit our main sensory story page for our other sensory stories. All sensory story booklets on this site are free to use and share but if you are putting them on a school website please link back to this page. If you really liked this story please consider sharing it on Twitter or Facebook. If you are feeling really generous please consider buying something from our wish list. It will all be used for the pupils at my school for sensory sessions.
