    So the classroom I'm taking over this fall (Pre-K SPE, mostly autism) is VERY heavily based in the TEACCH system... but, since the teacher who's leaving used a lot of her own materials to make lots of the tasks, she's taking the majority of the tasks with her... so I'm trying to get some ideas/inspiration to start making some things of my own...

    and I'm also trying to learn more about TEACCH... I know some basics, but haven't been to a training or anything on it yet... anyone know some good sites or books to help?

    :thanks: :love:

    Of course it will depend a lot on the level of the kids...I posted a message a few months back on the jobs I'd either worked with in someone else's classroom or the jobs I invented. http://forums.atozteacherstuff.com/showthread.php?p=45653#post45653 I do not have a special ed endorsement, I've just subbed several month in sp.ed. and taught ESY one summer. I've got plenty of ideas if you want to to ask some specifics of me (you can e-mail too). The teacher I've worked under the most would order small erasers and other trinkets from the Oriental trading co. catalogs. Then she'd have her students sort them. But I've worked with kids who were a bit (not much) more advanced than sorting.

    Oh, Viola, I forgot to post levels... which I'm not totally sure on yet... ;) But I know a few are still doing the VERY basic sorting tasks (block vs. lid, etc), and I've got some who can do letters, patterns, etc... so I have a pretty varied group...

    thanks. :)

    Teacch

    Have you check out www.tasksgalore.com ?

    Or there is a new book out "How do I teach this kid?" Visual work tasks for beginning learners on the autism spectrum,

    I have a lot of file folder tasks - mostly because they are cheaper to make but I am building my supply of work tasks.

    Great ideas, thanks arumball! I'm making tons of file folder games myself... but for my lowest kids, I need some more "Concrete" things. :) It'll be a little easier in 3 weeks when I can get in to my room and see what I actually have available! But until then, I'm file foldering it. ;)

    you're welcome Clarnet,

    Depending on the severity of your students, Hands on tasks should be fine. I like the tasks they offer. You don't have to purchase anything and it's stackable and the storage space is INCREDIBLE. My students love them. I can't wait to buy some more. Most of them are under $20 per task which is very reasonable.

    I love Carson-Dellosa's File Folder Games, Preschool. It's a lot of sorting and matching, and it gets into 1:1 correspondence and the alphabet. You can make copies of whatever you feel is appropriate for your students, and it takes a few hours to color the materials, cut them out, and glue them to tagboard. Once they're laminated, they're pretty sturdy, and the tasks take up very little space. Copies of this book are available on Ebay and several websites for $20, if they don't carry it in a store near you.

    Whoops, didn't read the post about needing stuff that's more concrete for your kids. File folder games are good, but only if they're right for your kids.
