Happy Monday morning!! I am sharing this week’s post today instead of Friday so that you will have the opportunity to use it before the big game! Marie Fisher has shared a fun activity to incorporate the Super Bowl into a lesson for kiddos with more complex communication needs.
I thought I would share an activity I did last week with my students at Atherton who primarily use AAC. I originally got the idea from our blog — Super Bowl Stadium cookies. I made some visuals and templates that coincide with a current News-2-You article about the Super Bowl. The “core words” board seemed to be the most functional with those students using the dynamic display devices. The students practiced structuring 1-2 word phrases using these core words on their own devices as we made the cookies.
Just a side note from me: It is fantastic to see people using blog posts as a spring board! Marie has taken an idea from Jessica’s previous post and expanded on it to create an activity that works for her kiddos! I am so excited that this has created a connection without us all having to be in the same place at the same time!! If you have used and expanded on an idea from a previous post–return the favor! Send your ideas this way so that everyone can benefit!! Keep it up!!
