Teacher Techniques: Pupils with additional support needs - Take You Home

Watch Kiara deliver a music lesson to a mixed group of children who have different special needs, some have a developmental age of 4 to 7-years-old and others who have a visual impairment.

Kiara wants her learners to interact more with the music and thinks this lesson is suitable for her group. The steps she takes are:

  • listen to Take You Home on Play It!
  • explore a variety of sensory resources to be used in the activities
  • include technology in music making
  • let each child explore and experiment with the musical instruments
  • play along with the song as an ensemble

Use the Take You Home resources to help plan your activities.
