It has been a dreary weekend here...rain and cold (40s). Since the weather has been nice for being outside I have had some time to finish up on some activities that are half way done. 

Here is another dramatic play props great for your little ones. They are simple, but will help encourage language and communication between my kiddos. They are also working on colors, counting, and manners. I also have a mega pack of dramatic play activities available here (it is a better deal than buying individually).  

You can find the Flower Shop here. 

Here is what is included:

The students will request how many and what color flowers they like. 


There are cards to connect to the flowers. 


There is a checklist for the students to use and a receipt. Each flower is $1 for easy counting. 


There is a flower shop sign, what types of flowers, open/ closed sign and phone number cards.





I have vases, flowers, and aprons all ready to go. Can't wait to use this next year! 

Happy Sunday!

I am linking up with Kacey from Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday.

3. I made these handprint flower books for our parent helpers. You can grab the cover here. The flowers are from Ashley Hughes





4. I placed these crabs in the sand and the students identified the lower case letter and wrote it on the dry erase board.

I am linking up with Kacey at Doodle Bugs Teaching to share a few things we did.

1. We did ladybug counting spots and matching the number
2. We made butterflies.


3. I got these question smash mats. My kids love these! We did the what questions the other day and they had a blast. They are from Simply Speech. My kids love them!



4. I have been working on commenting sentences with the help of Sasha from The Autism Helper's  Commenting Visuals! My nonverbal kids love this because they are able to communicate what they see!


5. Have a great weekend! We are staying home but the weather is supposed to be nice so we should be able to be outside.  



Snack time is a great opportunity to work on conversation skills with your little ones. Requesting items, using manners, and talking with friends. However, a lot of my kiddos don't know what to talk about. So this past year I have been talking about different topics each month and then placing the prompts on the tables for the students to refer to, to talk with their peers. I keep them up on the cabinet and then just pull them down and place them on the table at snack time. I have heard more of my students talking (even if it is just talking about the pictures). It is getting them talking and learning to take turns during a conversation. You can find more of these prompts here.


Have a great Saturday!




I got this picture direction cards from From the Pond and I love them! I use them at my fine motor and language centers to show my students what each task is to complete the center. This has really helped my students stay on task and complete their work more efficiently. I have added other task cards in addition to the ones in the packet so this can be used for all of our activities, but my kids love it. As soon as we complete a task, we turn the picture over to show it is completed. If a child is not sure of what to do I am able to take that visual and keep it closer to them so they know what to do. It helps my students anticipate what to do and has taken some of the stress they get out of the activity and they know when this is done they can choose a free choice item.



How do you help keep your kiddos on task?
