Individual Programming

Classroomrainbow A while ago, I started working on a page (linked at the top) that gives an overview of our classroom including staffing, students (without being overly specific due to confidentiality), classroom set up and our daily schedule.  A large portion of our daily schedule falls under "individual programming".  I thought I would take a bit of time to include some of the things that we work on during this time.  Not every student will work on everyone of these things and this is not a full list but rather just the things that we have concentrated on in the past or will concentrate on early in this upcoming year.  There are some things that appear to fall in different categories and that is just because all of the students start with a different skill base and I've copied and pasted much of this from my checklist pages.

During the year, it is my intention to share things we have done and materials that I have create (or materials that I use that we have bought) to work on these skills.
