Overview

Introducing sandtray play and storying into mainstream and special education classrooms can have an extremely enriching impact on the learning experience. When used effectively, it can create the climate for social, emotional and behavioral growth and incite bursts of creativity in students.

Build a world in your sandtray; tell its story; record it; listen to your partner's story - these are the invitations to students in a sandtray play/narrative workshop. The benefits of such an approach are endless, from the positive, therapeutic effects of physically displaying emotions through sand worlds to the development of essential speaking, listening and writing skills when telling and recording sand world stories. This accessible and classroom-friendly book explains the thinking behind this unique approach and answers all the nuts-and-bolts questions of sandtray/narrative workshop setup. It offers a wealth of practical methods that can be applied to a wide spectrum of the student population and details real-life anecdotes and student work.

This book is an invaluable handbook for teachers and school counselors looking to use play and storying as a way to develop core competencies in children with special educational needs and in the mainstream, and will also be of interest to play therapists, speech and language therapists and educational psychologists.

Meet the Author

Sheila Dorothy Smith has worked extensively in both mainstream and special education classrooms. She began her teaching career in a Froebel kindergarten, subsequently worked as a parent educator, and for 22 years, as an elementary classroom teacher and special education resource teacher. She has specialist qualifications in Guidance and Special Education, is a training candidate in Sandplay therapy (CAST), and is currently enrolled at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education as a Masters student in Counseling Psychology. In 2006, Sheila introduced sandtray play and storying to a group of twelve students who were disengaged in the curriculum. Her book is born out of the lively and ongoing results of that experiment. She lives north of Toronto, Ontario.
