Updated May 2016 to include new graphics and additional cards.
Although this may look like a typical thank you card making activity, it is actually so much more. This packet provides everything you need to thank your school staff and address at least 14 ABLLS-R objectives, some not easily addressed in discrete trial or small group classroom instruction.
Here is what you can do:
1. Print the directions and cards.
2. Select the cards of people who are important to your students within the school.
3. Address generic cards to anyone not included with personalized cards.
4. Each student can color one or more cards.
5. All students can sign the back of each card or you can write From Ms. So-and-so's class.
6. Set out to deliver the cards around the school reminding students who they are going to see, where they are located, how to greet and respond to greetings, and any other expectations you may have.
