Well things got a little crazy this week with two school wide events and LOTS of IEP meetings. As a result, we ended up having to cancel most of our Sensory and Language Groups this week. We used month’s Unique Curriculum theme for our Fine Motor Groups which by some miracle were not impacted by the above events 🙂
Here is what we did…..
First we folded 2 cupcake liners and then used our adaptive scissors to make snips—counting each snip.
Oh yeah—-have we got this cutting business down or what?!!! 🙂
Folding and cutting the cupcake liners changes the way they look, addressing the science access point of recognizing a change in an object.
Pat! Pat! Pat!
Holding down the popsicle stick while patting down the cupcake liners promotes bilateral coordination.
Gluing the cupcake liners together addresses the math access point of solving simple problems involving putting together small quantities of objects.
Placing the cupcake liners ON the popsicle stick addresses the math access point of recognizing a movement that reflects a spatial relationship.
Pincer grasp skills and eye hand coordination is addressed during this activity.
The math access points of recognizing when an object is added to a situation and recognizing 3 dimensional shape (sphere) is addressed.
…….hey what happened to my flower?????
This piece of pool noodle with a slit cut in it works perfectly as a planter.
We counted the flowers as we put them in 1,2,3,4,5!
The 2 bees were different sizes giving us a chance to address the math access point of recognizing differences in sizes of objects.
Look at this concentration, don’t you just love it!
We also discussed the color of the paper, addressing the science access point of identifying objects by one observable property.
And added some heart shaped wings (made from waxed paper) 2 googlie eyes and a triangle tail.
In addition to the math access point of recognizing 2 dimensional shapes, spatial relations skills are addressed while putting together our cute little bumble bee!
Our students looked so cute as they made their little bees fly around—and also demonstrated the science access points of applying a push or pull to move an object AND recognizing a model of a real object!
Come by next week when we will be back in business with all our groups—its going to be SUCH FUN………
Group by Group 🙂
