Using a large GO chart in the large group we went through the teamwork poster 1 picture at a time. I made a T chart with a yes/no heading and a why box. The children looked at the pictures and told me if it showed teamwork and why or why not.
We began developing a working definition of teamwork. We used our senses on how teamwork would look, sound and feel emotionally. The ideas were listed on the chart.
Then came the challenge & Stripes and Bailey (our class Sock Puppets) set the tone but Bailey is confused.... They need room 15 to help them out!
I hope you enjoy the children explaining what Teamwork is using the Doodle Cast App. More are finishing their projects and will soon be up.
D.P. Clearly explains Teamwork!
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.
