I am an elementary school teacher at heart, which means I like to have themes! Themes are great when we work on the same skill for a long time. Having a theme gives you the opportunity to change up the presentation. Today I’m going to show you how I made 3 easy Valentine’s Day themed tasks for my classroom.
I don’t know about you, but several of my students love these number puzzles. For my students with limited mobility we use eye gaze to identify which set of hearts is the correct number and then we put the puzzle together with hand-under-hand prompting.
My students are always refining their knowledge on emotions. What better way to do it than with a fun and adorable sorting activity. For my students with mobility and vision impairments I use hot glue and felt to make the activity tactile and present choices on a black felt board. If you want a felt board of your own Alyssa shows you how to make one here.
A couple of my students have been working really hard on tracing and some of my students like to do this kind of activity as a hand-under-hand activity. There are various tracing strips with a cute heart as the stop cue at each end.
That’s it! With the help of Lessonpix and a little lamination, we have 3 Valentine’s Day Themed Tasks prepped and ready to go. This is how I keep my activities fresh through out the year. What do you do to keep activities interesting?
