As one of our daily lessons, the student are asked various questions during our science/weather lesson. Some of the questions that are asked are: Which item do you wear in the winter, which item do you wear in the summer or which item do you wear in the spring? Given options between a sweatshirt, sandal, hat, shorts, mittens or a tank top, the students answer the questions accordingly. Other items that are included in this lesson are an umbrella, sunglasses, dress, cap, windbreaker jacket and snow boots. You can vary the lesson however you want to. The students will surely enjoy the lesson as they are learning! We sure do!
Today at the school I teach in, we wore blue to support our students with autism and those who have autism nationally. This year thus far, I have tremendously enjoyed teaching my students who have made progress with structure, consistency, a schedule and a routine. Some of my goals are teaching my students communication and independence in addition to academics. It is so rewarding to see my students be happy, make progress and mature during the course of the year.
I found a simple yet educational video on you tube about autism. Please watch this short video and be inspired!
