All you need are some pipe cleaners and tin foil. Split into pairs or small groups and working together see what you can build. Your students have to work together, talk to each other, use fine motor manipulation skills and motor planning to create something together!
Can they build a house? Make people? Build a car?
I Have .... Card Game: First person puts out one card saying, as the card indicated, “I have….a cat,” and then they flip the card over saying as indicated, “who has….a frog?” All players then race to be the first to put a matching card down and say, “I have a frog,” flip it over and say, “Who has….a giraffe?” Play continues in this fashion until someone gets rid of all their cards. This simple language based game packs a lot into a deck of cards, including verbalization, articulation, picture identification, auditory and visual processing, and sequencing.
Communicate And Connect
Communication and connecting with others is so important. There are so many ways we can connect with our children. Here are a few:
Asks Questions Laugh Together
Give Jobs Maintain Eye Contact
Get on the Floor Create a Special Handshake
How do you encourage your children? "Good Job!" only goes so far.
Here are some awesome ways to encourage your children!
"That's the best you've ever done!"
" What a Super Star you are!"
"You Must Have Been Practicing!"
"I Knew You Could Do It!"
Add an encouraging twist to your circle time! Each day have a special person, rotate through the week. During your daily circle time, have that special person come to the front with you and each student in class has to say one nice and encouraging thing to the special person.
You can also add an encouraging twist to any part of your day- a new routine at breakfast or maybe at dinner time. During group sessions, you can end with each child picking another student and saying one encouraging statement.
