This awesome Back to School Movement Scavenger Hunt for the Classroom will get kids acquainted with their classroom in a unique way!
We’ve been working hard on an amazing new pack of products designed to inspire co-treatment ideas between therapists. More on that soon!
In the meantime, we thought we’d give you a sneak peak into some of the great ideas that we have in store!
Co-treatment is a great way to infuse the skill sets of all related therapy services into the classroom, allowing teachers, classroom aides and even parents to see how the efforts of these professionals can carry over in a very functional way.
Often, the strategies and activities used during co-treatment sessions and sessions where therapists push into the classroom can be used on a daily basis in the classroom and at home to continue practicing the important skills that kids need to be successful even after the therapy sessions are over.
Our Sensory Motor Scavenger Hunts are one of our most downloaded products here at The Inspired Treehouse. Like the rest of our scavenger hunts, today’s free printable will challenge not only a child’s visual skills but also their gross motor skills, coordination, endurance, auditory processing, social skills and proprioception!
Try this activity with these free printable back to school hats from Books and Giggles! We love pairing movement activities with crafts to target a whole range of motor and sensory skills!

What to do:
After downloading the scavenger hunt for the classroom printable, provide a copy to each child to complete on their own or complete this activity as a group, assigning each child to be the leader or to complete one of the individual challenges.
How to change it up:
-Break the scavenger hunt down into the individual activities to use as “sprints”/movement breaks throughout the school day.
-Take some of the scavenger hunt challenges outside for something different!
-Change up the challenges to meet the needs and abilities of the kids in your group. Simplify by breaking the multi-step challenges into smaller parts, completing them one at a time. Make it more challenging by giving the multi-step directions all at one time, so kids have to remember and sequence the steps.

The beginning of the school year makes parents whose children will go to school in a year or two start to Wake up. Now they are trying to choose preparatory courses or just thinking about their future school. But we have long chosen English speaking school in Brussels, and we are calm about the learning process, because we are 100% confident in the school

Many children are now experiencing a lot of stress from getting up to school. For many, working in the classroom was a very difficult process even before the quarantine, but after the lockdown, everything became even more difficult. I read that there are a number of companies helping to adapt again https://review42.com/reviews/education/papersowl/ they create help for high school students. I heard that even students sometimes use it. Now it has become relevant again.
