Hi, I am teaching a Life Skills summer school class. I have four kids ranging from 1st through 5th grade. I have one big fifth grader with severe autism who is VERY violent. He is very aggressive, and self abusive. He will bang his head against the wall if you ask him to do something he doesn't want to do, if he sees something he doesn't like, he will drop to the floor and flop his body against the ground.... He also bites and pulls hair. There is one other child with autism who is an absolute sweetheart and just repeats what you say, and always complies with requests, etc. There are two MR kids who do not have the fine motor skills to even hold a pencil. One of them is a little girl, six years old, who is constantly a target for my fifth grader. I was just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for activities to work on with them - because their academic skills are very limited. I usually read stories to my kids, but these guys have a tough time sitting still or paying attention. We have done some sensory activities, worked on writing our names... (hand over hand of course..), and I have been doing a "Letter a day" on construction paper, tracing the letter and then writing words next to it that start with it, and then letting them color on the paper. I am just looking for any suggestions for activities that might be able to keep their attention but that are age appropriate. I am trying to expose them to as many academic activities as possible, even if it requires hand over hand. I normally teach kids that are pretty low-functioning, but this is definitely a new thing for me - kids who are so low that even writing name/letters is a challenge (with severe behaviors). Thanks in advance for any ideas!
