Hello blogland friends! Too bad I'm not going to ASHA or I would actually get to meet some of you!
I want to let you know that I had a great day today! One of my little school friends did a fabulous job using her social thinking skills in the classroom. The teacher told the class to find their own partner for a social studies project. (Normally this would be a daunting task for a child with autism.) She immediately looked across the classroom, made eye contact with a peer, and asked (using a quiet voice and appropriate body language) in a sweet voice "Will you be my partner?" The girl said 'Yes!' Then they followed all the directions together, getting a laptop, and researched their assigned topic. My little friend actually did the writing for this assignment with an actual pencil. (She has CP, and a year ago, would have tantrumed when asked to write.) Maybe this Social Thinking curriculum is actually making an impact!!!! I hope so, time will tell, but for now, I'm in my happy place.
When I'm happy, I want to celebrate, and what better way to celebrate than to make some more materials to share. Here is 'Gobble Gobble--Thanksgiving Preposition Bingo'. Halloween will be over before the blink of an eye, so I'm looking ahead.
This is similar to my other bingo games. There are three somewhat different Bingo cards, and one calling card (cut it up and the kids can take turns picking a card and describing what they see). If you notice, I didn't put in Pilgrims and Native Americans. Hope you don't mind.
