Center Activities 1#

As you may have noticed in previous posts, I am a Behavior aide. I am currently working with a 7 year old autistic girl. I have been with her for almost 3 years now. And in trying to mainstream her, I’ve had to modify the curriculum quite often to fit her needs. At first, I was completely stumped. What could I do, at her level, that would be similar to what the rest of the class was learning. I started combing the internet, found a lot of good ideas and tried to modify them to fit our needs. I will post the basic ones here, from time to time, to help those, who like me, need ideas by the dozens.

BASIC WORD RECOGNITION
I created a series of center activities to help with word recognition. There are several different levels. You can start with basic single letters, numbers,or you can do words as I show.

I started with an easel style pocket chart.

Next, you write simple words on 3×5 cards.

Then write the corresponding word on a second card.

Then simply have the child match the words as they say them aloud.

This is a great activity and can be varied in all sort of directions.

ENJOY
