It’s Back to School, Season! Children have fun engaging and participating in activities all aligned with the core theme of pumpkins, pumpkins, pumpkins! This unit includes more than 60 pages of 16 activities which could easily be expanded and differentiated to cover a week’s lesson plan or even a month!
Music & movement, motor imitation, receptive & expressive language, independent & social play, matching, counting, sequencing, sorting, patterning…. and MORE!
General Back to School Themed Activities as well as lessons aligning with the following children’s stories:
If You Take a Mouse to School by Laura Numeroff
Llama Llama Misses Mama by Anna Dewdney
A Bus for Us by Suzanne Bloom
The goal is actively engaged learners within the context of meaningful activities well matched to their developmental levels, strengths, needs, interests & preferences!
While many of the activities can be presented and facilitated in a way which focuses on independent work tasks, our primary goal in sharing these materials is to advocate for and support educators and therapists in facilitating more social interactions, scaffolding social language & social behaviors through naturalistic interventions and play based learning experiences.
You will find idea cards with the activities outlining how to “Make it Social!” by making small changes in the way you present & facilitate which can result in big outcomes.
Let’s all work together to provide more equitable access to fun in learning for our *disabled students.
This curriculum is accessible and appropriate for disabled as well as non-disabled students. Remember, it’s not WHAT you do, it’s HOW you do it!
