More SPED advice – from a reader!
Yamilka Gomez shared a great comment on yesterday’s post that I thought you all would like to read so I reposted it for everyone to see. Thank you Yamilka!
The Book Strike It Rich has some really cool mallet activities that a lot of autistic children can do. I use them with my self contained autistic classes 2nd grade – 5th grade and they love it. There is a little song called Monkey Monkey that teaches steady beat and proper mallet technique – it’s a rhyme and they can tap the rhythm on the desk, floor or their hand. And they have to scratch like a monkey to the beat. I make them scratch themselves with the same hand they hold the mallet with, if it falls it means they were not holding it correctly.
