The Classroom Proprioceptive Activities Cards from Starfish are a pack of over 40 practical and easy activities to incorporate proprioception into the classroom, which helps with calming and self regulation.
Proprioception is the sensory system that tells our brain where we are in space. The receptors are mostly in the muscles and joints of our body. Providing proprioceptive input can be very helpful for producing calming and regulation, and a valuable part of a sensory diet. Many seek proprioceptive input when they are overwhelmed, and it can be particularly beneficial following vestibular activity.
Planning sensory breaks and sensory input as part of the teaching and learning day is a sensory safe way to support students. If students are regulated, then their capacity to engage and learn is improved.
This set of over 50 proprioceptive activities was designed by teachers for teachers. They are all tried and tested. They are all practical, student friendly and easy to implement.
The activities are colour coded by category:
* Heavy Work x 18
* Deep Pressure Touch x 5
* Weight Bearing x 5
* Vibration x 5
* Oral x 7
* PE/Obstacle Course x 16
There are also 3 blank cards for each category, so more can be added. For example if parents or therapists have suggested activities for a particular student, you can use a marker to personalise the blank card.
The cards come with suggestions for use along with hints and tips (on the reverse side). They are hole punched, and a hinged ring is included so you can create a handy resource of your favourite cards.
Yes. These cards are designed with the classroom in mind, but they can also be used at home, in therapy, before and after school care.
The Classroom Proprioceptive Activities Cards are also FREE to download from our website. This prepared pack is for those who prefer to purchase quality resources ready to go and will save you time. You can find the free download HERE.
Love the oilslick colour. The hailstorm is perfect too keep my hands busy and my mind calm. I love the cold feel of this product. Also perfect pocket size.
So soft but firm to squeeze. It's like a 2 in 1 squishy.
Absolutely love this. I have this on everyday and get mesmerised watching the dancing jellyfish change colours and the balls floating around.
This store is a favourite spot for my son! It's a one-stop shop for all his sensory needs, and the best part is that everyone is so friendly and non-judgmental here.
My one year old is absolutely obsessed with this massive dimple - fat brain toys never fail
Absolutely amazing magnetic board, my daughters loves this and helps so much with fine motor development.
This timer helps with staying at the dinner table and eating for 5 minute increments. Once the timer is finished my son can have a few minutes play. Then he comes back and starts the timer again. It’s very easy for him to turn himself and watch.
Our son loves these plush balls, they’re super cute & durable.
We have one of these fidget spinners at every regular place our son attends.
Really great product. The weight is perfect to offer some added sensory input.
Such a good way to carry our sons headphones around. The case also fits other items like his chew & small fidget.
We have multiple pairs of these, they’re so good!
This is a great portable alternative to the galaxy light & Alexa in our sons room. We can get the same galaxy lights & white noise on the go.
Sizing was accurate. My son loves this sock to help regulate himself!
Oh these tiles are so great. Hours of fun and learning, plus they are great for fine motor. High quality and we love the pastel colours, we had to get more!
