Conference Week

We had parent teacher conferences this week and a day off for Veteran’s Day.  This meant we didn’t have our usual session of concept group.  Parents were given the back page of their child’s BOEHM test which explains the concepts they missed at the beginning of the year and suggestions for concept development.  There are always a few parents that are surprised that directional vocabulary is important along with counting and saying the  ABCs.   We’ll continue the concept groups again this next week.

I did add a few new things on the activity pages.  I added another set of animal association cards under the other set.  It seems to be a popular item when I look at how many times it has been downloaded.  I also added a comparison game I named “Will it Fit in a Jar?”   It’s similar to “In a Pickle”  but has pictures.  I have some kids whose reading ability prevented them from using the commercial game but needed to work on comparisons.   The kids I used it with seemed to enjoy it so I will use it again.  I’m still learning how to use it to it’s full potential.  I also added cards to answer why questions.  My children with autism always find these type of questions to be a challenge.
