Several new cooperative games were brought out where the children had to work as a group to reach a common goal to win. Destroyer of Fun (D.O.F. ) made his appearance as we played and allowed for numerous opportunities to notice and defeat him . We noted silliness, cheating, not sharing, body out of group and trying to be competitive in a non competitive game.
The children had fun and learned at the same time!
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.
I begin my 26th year of teaching this year! I teach in the Bay Area and live in the beautiful redwoods of the Santa Cruz Mountains. My sanctuary, place of reflection and daily sitting practice.
My hope is that this website/blog will help others understand and see children with Autism as talented unique thinkers who can and will contribute to our world and anyone who knows them in positive ways.
