A “Sensational” Holiday Session Plan

Happy Wednesday!

I can feel the excitement in the air now that the holidays are just around the corner. My desk at UCP is filled with Christmas cards, I have seriously overdone it with cookies, cupcakes, and candy, and I hear the kids still talking about their musical performance of the Nutcracker.

Today I want to share with you about a resource I offer that will help you with planning sensory-based session plans for the Christmas holiday.

That resource is….

Sensational Songs & Activities

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In Sensational Songs & Activities you’ll find a Holiday music therapy session plan that will provide you with creative, developmentally appropriate ideas that incorporate all five senses. You’ll see how I incorporate pine branches, mittens, jingle bells, Christmas lights, ice packs, and apple cinnamon scents into this session (and much more!)

How much time would this save YOU to have a session already planned out?

Give yourself a present this holiday season! Click here to order your copy of Sensational Songs & Activities!

But don’t take my word for it.

Here’s what others are saying about the Sensational Songs & Activities E-Book:

The most useful part {of the E-Book} was the six themed session ideas.  I provide MT groups one time per week for a school based special needs population and I used the “Fun in the Sun” and “Trip to the Farm” already this year. I love the concept of using all of the senses and the kids loved the variety. {This E-Book} has helped by saving planning time with a theme already to go. It has also helped inspire my own themes such as “Fall Hayride” using the senses. I was surprised at how much the kids loved the bubbles!  They also enjoy tasting different foods within the session, which I had not tried before.”

“{The most useful parts of Sensational Songs & Activities} were the themed session plans and the multi-sensory combination. I found this E-Book useful…to add more ideas to the pot of complete sensory stimulation ideas. I don’t often use olfactory (smell) in therapy sessions, but this E-Book encouraged me to look beyond what is traditional multi-sensory stimulation (auditory, tactile, visual) and add even smell into the equation.”

Your E-Book has been a great springboard for me!” {Shae wrote a blog post describing how she successfully used the Christmas session plan in one of her groups.} “I wish I could take full credit for the idea but I can’t. I recently purchased a book called Sensational Songs and Activities by Amy Kalas, MM, MT-BC and one of her song suggestions was my springboard for this suggestion. Her E-Book is packed full of great ideas to help jump start your creativity!!”

“I am now working with children with various disabilities and find this book to be useful. I am recently using a lot of Christmas music in my music interventions and came across your song “Do You Hear What I Hear?” I had two boys that I was working with and I believe they both enjoyed this song! The one boy has a history of not participating in any activities with other children but I had the privilege to have him remain in my small group for almost the entire time! I had an occupational therapist participate in my group as well and I think she was impressed with how music was being used. I can say I am finally using your book and find it very helpful. Thanks!!
