I'm literally hours away from the weekend....and I'm sooo excited! Though I have a lot of work to do at home this weekend, I'm also going to take some time to relax on the beach (weather permitting), and spend some time with family!
Anyway, I haven't done a Weekly Wrap-Up in a few weeks, as our scheduled have been a little off with State testing among other things. So this is what we've been up to the past few weeks in therapy:
I have one student in particular who is having a very hard time with playing games with peers. He attends one of my social groups. He used to loathe Apples to Apples card edition until we introduced Apples to Apples dice edition. Now he loathes the dice, and asks to play the card version. However, the other students in the group are enjoying the dice game, so we're using this as a teachable moment to teach the importance of compromise, talking out solutions instead of tantruming, winning and losing graciously, etc. Some days are good, others not so much. But he'll get there eventually. Until then, we keep on playing....
And finally, I took a few of my kiddos on nature walks in celebration of Earth Day. We talked about our 5 senses, vocabulary of things we saw and heard, and then came back to make adorable nature walk books by The Dabbling Speechie. You can find this adorable book HERE. We talked about the importance of taking care of our Earth as we made the books for them to take home. Though I did not tell the kid, this one was definitely my favorite:
I went on a nature walk.
I saw ___ grass.
I found ____ a stick.
I felt ______ hot.
I discovered _______ I don't like nature walks. (The End.)
Have a great weekend, friends!
