If You Dare! A game where the children pull a card form a specific category and then act it out. There are animal actions, silly sounds, copy cat charades and daring challenges! The children must keep their brains, bodies and attention in this game.
Wits ands Wagers- Is a game where everyone writes down a guess to a fun question like “How many people have walked on the moon?” Then players try to score points by choosing which guess listed they think is closest to the right answer. The answer is then revealed. It is like a trivia game with a twist. I learned how long a slinky is when fully stretched!
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.
