Week 14 - Online Special Education


Monday:

  • Help your child to identifying the letters of their first name on a keyboard and use their index fingers to type their first name with as much guidance as necessary.

  • Modification: practice using appropriate keys with fingers starting on, and returning to, the home row.

  • Modification: practice locating and typing just the first letter of the first name. Ex. "Find J. Tap J."

  • If you find that your child is holding the key down to create a series of one letter, practice "tapping" keys. Put your index finger under your child's finger so that you are able to lift his/her finger and say "tap" after each letter. For instance, "Tap A." Let your child's finger down long enough to tap A and then say "tap" as the child taps A. This will help pair the word "tap" with pushing the key and letting go immediately.

Thursday:  

  • Pop a hole that's just smaller than the size of a cotton ball into the top of box (shoe boxes are great for this). Have your child place a cotton ball onto the hole and use each finger to push the cotton balls into the holes. For more of a challenge, stand the box up so that the holes are on the side of the box.


Friday:

Daily: Practice counting by 1s to 5, 10, 15, 20, etc.


Daily: Count various items around the house (ex. rocks, spoons, cotton balls, etc.)


  • Practice reading and identifying each word below. 

  • PRINT lined paper for written work.

  • Write the words on index cards and spread them out.  Ask your child to identify each card by name.  Ex. "Cat."  Touch "cat."

  • Go over and review the index cards from previous weeks.


Modification: students who have a difficult time with writing, write words out on index cards and cut the letters into strips.  Scramble up the letters and ask your child to spell the given word.


Modification: have an index card with the word written out to use as a model.


Modification: hand-over-hand to assist with spelling, or have your child place the letter strip over the letter on the written model.
