Storytelling

Storytelling lets students perform sensory stories by touching the cosmoids. Each cosmoid triggers part of a pre-selected sensory story and only lights up when it’s your turn to add to the story. Press it when it’s your turn and let the story unfold. It’s a great activity for non-verbal students and for sensory learners.

My Voice

My Voice lets your students record their own voices, or any sound they like, with the touch of a button. They can then transform the sounds they have recorded by touching the cosmoids. It’s a great activity for encouraging students to use their voices and imaginations!

Turn Taking

Turn Taking lets students work together to play their favourite songs and is great for developing turn-taking, waiting, and collaboration skills. Choose a song and give a cosmoid to each of your students. Each cosmoid triggers part of the song and lights up to show whose turn it is. The longer you press, the longer the song plays for.

Colour Matching

Colour Matching is a great activity for helping students develop their colour vocabulary and shared attention skills. The aim is to find the cosmoids that light up with the same colour as your partner, and then press them together. Players get an audio-visual reward when they match the colours correctly.
