Peek At My Week: 10/19

Week #8: Whoa, I feel like October is going super slow and super fast at the same time...I don't think that even makes sense. I'm currently drowning in evals and progress reports are Dory and "just keep swimming."

Autism: I started some Halloween vocab with Batty Associations last week. The interactive portion of putting pictures in the book is keeping the students' attention! I've also been using the color/size apple part of the S.A.L.L. with these kids, plus my very fancy poker chip pacing board. I put this together because I can simply take off a chip for shorter utterances. We've been doing a lot of "I see a small/medium/big, green/yellow/red apple." I can also work on receptive tasks with the poker chip by laying all the apples on the table and telling the student to put the chip on a specific apple. So far, this is working well!

Poker chip pacing board:

Preschool: These kids are pretty easy to plan for since I focus pretty much on articulation at this age (in my current district anyway). So I usually just pick a game or reinforcer and drill, drill, drill. I usually let the kids pick, so it can be anything from potato head to pop up pirate.

K-2nd grade: The book this week is The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin! This is such a cute book and perfect for this time of year.

I found this great Cariboo Questions freebie from Peachie Speechie:

I'm also using something that was a huge hit last year - skeleton directions!! Cheap skeleton hung on the wall. Velcro attached to various spots on the skeleton and to dollar store creepy crawlies = instant fun!

3rd-5th: I'm using the pumpkin section of S.A.L.L. - synonyms/antonyms, figurative language, listening comprehension! Plus, a story from Super Power Speech's Fall Into Language Level 3.  

Happy planning!
