We continue to monitor our plants and are keeping a sharp eye on them to see how they are growing. Now that they have grown a bit, we talked about what plants need to grow.
My non-verbal children got a communication board with the symbols that we would be using.
My educational assistant facilitates one of my students using this one. As she points to the symbol and states what it is, she asks for a verbal sound as an indication of the one the student wants.
Each child got one of these sheets to fill out.
Together we made a class chart with what plants need.
The children had to cut out the correct symbol and word to make their sentence.
With assistance, several students used adapted scissors to cut their pieces out.
For my students that could print, I had them print out their responses.
This was the finished product for my students that cut and pasted their answers.
