So, I always get a little flutter of excitement when I stumble across something cool accidentally. I feel like I won the gift of time AND cool new idea. Such is the case with this new fun find.
I came across a super cute series on youtube called Simon's Cat. Maybe you've heard of it before, since it seems to have been around a while (like a few years!). It was new to me, so I thought I'd share just in case you wanted to check it out.
The videos are short 2-3 minute episodes of stories from the perspective of Simon the cat. Two things I love about them: they are short and WORDLESS...perfect for facilitating language and narrative discourse. I use the Story Grammar Marker tools with them, since most of the videos make a "complete episode" for narratives in SGM language.
They are also great for working on social language skills, such as emotions, facial expressions, problem solving, unexpected behaviors, and more. The possibilities with wordless books and videos really are endless.
There are like over 30 videos, so head on over and use away in therapy. Be sure and subscribe to the youtube channel, so you can stay updated when they post new episodes.
