October 2012 Activities

This month I focused on attributes.  I read a book called The Littlest Pumpkin which focused on big and little.  I created some pumpkin eggs to demonstrate heavy and light.  I filled half of the plastic eggs with fish gravel.  After I drew on the faces, I used clear packing tape to keep the eggs from coming open.

The eggs could be used for a sorting activity for some students.  My students dropped the eggs into a metal bowl and listened to the different sounds.  

I used the ball with an elastic strap with my students with Cortical Visual Impairment.  I added the face to the bright orange ball.
