Product Description
Here's a mini lesson teaching the history of New Years Day with regard to its becoming a federal holiday, and appropriate behavior for this holiday designed for mild-to-moderately affected special needs high school students, but appropriate for any young person wanting independent living skills.

It is part of the larger Celebrating Holidays book from Susan Traugh's Daily Living Skills series. Daily Living Skills meets federal mandates for transition services for special needs teens and Indicator 13 requirements.

Written on a high third/low fourth grade level, each unit is filled with airy pages and lots of bullet-point facts and information so that reluctant readers can use the program independently. Yet, while supporting their ability level, this program also honors the humor and sensibilities of teens and young adults. Each 2-4 page lesson has a quiz or activity for students to check comprehension and each is focused on helping students determine their needs and desires for the program.

Use this lesson to see if the entire program is appropriate for your students.

The complete program includes 34 books (more added each year) on a variety of adult living skills. The 283-page Teacher's Manual is also available for teachers who prefer this support. The manual contains tips for implementation of the program and program management along with written ITP goals for each workbook, a class grading system for most units and notes (as needed) for most workbook. (The Teacher's Manual is revised each summer to add new books written that year--you will be notified.)

Finally, a Power Point Presentation is also provided here (free) which will allow you to introduce the program to students, parents and/or administrators in a quick, yet comprehensive manner.

All units have a lesson/quiz format to constantly check for comprehension, a complete grading sheet, answer key, parent verification letters to document compliance with federal standards and airy, third-grade reading level pages.

Making Meals and Cleaning House both include video modeling of important life skills in an accessible, clear format. Videos need to be downloaded separately as the files are too large to bundle. However, all videos are free on this website, so you can obtain the entire bundle and all its component parts for this one low price.

Several pages are here for your preview, but if you like a full preview the program, download the free unit—Doing the Laundry—which is also available on this site.
