Of course, I have to have some books. Back in the mid-1990s, I wasn't sure what I was going to be doing the next day in therapy, so I headed to my then-version of Amazon Prime, the small book store in the mall. The Little Old Lady Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything was there, and I'm now on my second book since the first one finally fell apart from so much use. I love the repetition and sound effects, and it's always been a big hit with students. I'll also be using some interactive books, like Where Is Pumpkin? from Jenna Rayburn.
I bought this spider web at The Dollar Tree. It came with glow-in-the-dark spiders, but those are long gone. Thank goodness for Target - again! Target had these great colorful spiders. We get in real-life practice with spatial concepts - on top, in the middle, etc. And putting spiders actually under the web is always a lot of fun! Students get to touch the fuzzy web.
Trick or Treat Spatial Concepts and for early next week, Dia de los Muertos, A Wh- Game. As the cultural presence of Dia de los Muertos increases, I want my students to know why they are seeing decorated skulls in Wal-Mart and HEB.
