We end the year with a new unthinkable Destroyer of Fun.
This unthinkable makes people overly competitive and likes to keep others from having fun when playing a game.
Mrs. Cooper and I were playing Connect Four in front of the class when D.O.F. slowly began to creep into our game. The children giggled and began listing what was happening to our game. They had a great deal of knowledge and experience with D.O.F. it appeared.
The following day the children played and had the class and teachers try to figure out what D.O.F. was doing to their game.
Next week, we will learn some strategies and use the stager blaster on last 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.
