Concept Group 10

     This week, like many schools, we have a short week because of Thanksgiving.  It seemed like a good week to have a food theme.  We did the “Never Ever Dinner Plate” activity.  I originally made this activity to introduce the concept (never).  It also works for matching skills, categorization of food and talking about empty and full.  The kids always get a kick out of finding the things you never eat.  It’s similar to the memory game so also encourages concentration.

    We are amazed at the progress the students have made since the beginning of the year.  They are now taking turns without difficulties.  We can leave a table periodically and the activity will continue on without direct supervision from an adult.  They are not worried about who is winning and will actually help students who are falling behind.  This is quite amazing since our classes are quite large.  It really helps to have them more independent and cooperative.
