After our quiet gratitude walk ( HERE) using our iPad cameras to capture what we noticed, the children made a simple collage by picking four items they were grateful for. It is quite beautiful to listen to their thinking and witness their open curiosity and eagerness at carefully selecting the four most meaningful pictures for them. Many had stories- One boy picked the palm tree because it had interesting bark patterns. Another spotted a lost shoe set aside on a cement column and said shoes kept kept our feet safe. The children were given no rules on what to snap a picture just to do it quietly and respect others who were taking pictures.
Welcome to my classroom!
I am passionate, a little bit quirky ( some may say a little bit more) and dedicated to serving children with Autism. These young people have touched me deeply and have made me a better teacher & hopefully person. I want to share what I have learned that allows these beautiful children to grow & sometimes thrive in my class.
