Halloween Fun

Hi All,
      I am so glad to share this unit with you.  I've been using it in my class this week and I have to say that it has been a life saver!  As you know I teach children with autism and sometimes their behaviors can be challenging.  We were doing great but then we reached a point where the kids were pretty much DONE after recess.  You know, like "stick a fork in it, I'm DONE!!!"  I couldn't get much at all out of them at all!  They barely wanted to sit for a story!

      One of the speech therapists came with a cute little shape monster activity.  By cute, I mean I liked the words.  The graphics were Board Maker (BIG YAWN).  So I took the idea and put my own spin on it.  I added colorful graphics and the container with a cut out mouth to "feed" shape monster.  Not only did the kids enjoy it, but they "ate it up!"  It was literally a God send!

      I taught them how to do it on the 1st day.  Once they were comfortable with the format, they looked forward to doing this every day.  It became a very nice "go to" for the month of October.
