I have the great opportunity to work with K-5th grade students on the Autism Spectrum Scale, most who are ESL, at a Title 1 school. They come to school each day with challenges that most kids would never face but come in ready to learn and grow.
In our structured classroom for kids with Autism, we work on not only academics but also being good citizens.
We start early with these kids working on independence, focus, and job and life skills.
This year in my TAP (Teaching Accadmeic Potential) we will be working on a Cooking to Learn curriculum. This curriculum aims to improve reading, math, social studies, science and life skills through the fun activity of cooking. Each recipe is written in pictures all the way to full paragraphs so all students af all labels can work together on the same project together. By using real world skills in the classroom, my students will be working on academic and social skills while also working on physical, tactile, and sensory issues that many children with autism have, using highly motivating food.
