Monday is assessment day over here. I have 2 new students coming up on their 45 day reviews plus a few annual IEP assessments due, anyone else feeling the end of the year crunch? No formal assessments for me but these are two of my favorite quick, & ready to go packets for updating present levels.
(1) Making requests, asking for help, requesting materials, and vocabulary are all great targets during art projects. For the students working on building functional, expressive communication we are going to draw monsters and mermaids and color them.
(2) For my students working on expanding communication and describing objects the plan is to use the Expanding Expression Toolkit to describe our monsters & mermaids.
(3) Lastly, for my students working on narratives, story grammar, and working in a group we will use the Story Grammar Marker app to create a story about our mermaids. If you want the whole group to write a story together the Story Cubes dice are always fun and spark some creative ideas.
