All my life when we were given homework in our summer hols .. I would end up doing it in the last week ( vowing to do much better next time but of course not doing it )
I am the same
So I did all the things I had said I would on Friday
Except that I did them all on Sunday
First , Visual Schedule book looked something like this
I bought this from a woman on Ebay more than a year ago - The hardest part about the visual schedule is having all the options and also having the scheudle with you
R really understands it - all the pictures have images as well as words so he can read them as well and it really helps him understand what comes after what
I ended up keeping a little pad so I could write things down as well
Second ,Pretend play Scenarios
1. did several versions of a tea - party ( failed - no interest at all)
2. Did several scenarios of doll playing with a ball( that you can see in the picture as well ) - this is a scenario R has created for himself because of a Blues Clues Book
Third Picture Book - Book about R
Collected all the materials - I think I am going to start with the simplest and cheapest . A power point presentation of R's day with captions etc
"R likes to play in the sandbox" with a picture like this
( with labels on everything ) etc
I plan to end the book with simple what questions like
"What color is the sandbox?"
