Who is this resource created for?
I created this activity binder with the help of a very talented para-educator in my middle school classroom for students with Autism, Intellectual Disabilities, including Down's Syndrome. We were brainstorming tactile ways for our students with intensive needs to practice spelling and reading their sight words. We also wanted a task activity that would be both used for instructional purposes and independent practice.
Sheila, one of my amazing para-educators, came to school with letters from the dollar store. We came up with the idea of laminating the letters with index cards to create letter cards and putting velcro on the backs. I created several pages, some to store the letters in alphabetical order and other pages for students to create their words. I three hole-punched these pages and placed them into a binder. I am in love with using binders for tasks. I prefer this to task boxes because it is more age appropriate for middle school students. It looks like a resource that could be in any middle school classroom. Also, it keeps the resources nicely organized.
This binder activity is extremely useful for students with Intellectual disabilities and Down’s Syndrome. I found it particular helpful for a student with Down’s Syndrome that has difficulty working independently. He is able to create his sight words independently when looking at his flashcards.
