The holidays mean all sorts of yummy treats around home and school ( if you are lucky!)

6. Fine Motor Christmas Tree Craft
One of my personal goals this year is to find more ways to integrate sensory and fine motor activities into my students days. Every academic activity we give our students can be modified to include fine motor or sensory.
7. Prepping Students for Christmas
All holidays are HARD. And many of our students need a little extra prep to be successful through the new foods, crowds, smells, and schedule changes. Prepping them using resources they are familiar with is a great way to keep anxiety low. When you expect what’s coming next, you’re more likely to be successful right?!, same goes for our students.
I hope these holiday blogs are helpful to you this holiday season!
