This is the most excited I've been in a LONG time. Sad, right?
"Why?" I hear you ask.
Simple, two of my most favourite things have joined together in blog land; Halloween & a blog hop! SO EXCITING!
Ok.. so maybe not my two most favourite things ever, but they're up there with the best.
Thank you so much to Rachael at The Classroom Game Nook for putting a LOT of time and energy into creating this wonderful blog hop. Be sure to continue with the hop at the end of this post and see what everyone else is blogging about!
So, first up, we're going to talk TRICKS!
I've worked with children with autism for a LONG time now, and believe me when I say - you definitely pick up tricks of the trade!
One of the main things is behaviour management. Like, seriously, if you can't help the students manage their behaviours, you can't help them progress. One of my favourite ways for this is two separate visuals; first, then board and working for board. You can see example pics of them both below. Keep your eyes peeled for an EXCITING post I have coming up over the next few weeks ALL about Classroom Management in an Autism Classroom!
Another trick is to keep things new and exciting. If a holiday/seasonal event comes up - incorporate it into your Classroom. You may be teaching the same thing again - but once you add a theme and jazz it up, the kiddos instantly get engrossed in it all again! You can include it for anything - even cooking!
How about these Witch cones for Halloween?!
