Thanks to a social media post from Speech Room News, I had my eye out for these tasty treats at Target. I got all 3 for under $10! So now that I have some new fun toys to play with, I wanted to share some ways I was planning on using them.
1. Sequencing: Have students tell you ( or another student ) the steps to make one of the items, then have the students or yourself follow them.
2. Following Directions: Give the students steps to put together or arrange the foods.
3. Describing: You can use the EET ( Expanding Expressions Tool ) if you have it, if not, no biggie. Have students describe the ingredients of the foods and/or the foods themselves.
4. Comparing/Contrasting: Have students compare and contrast the different foods. I love doing this when I have the items on hand!
5. Syntax/Written Expression: Students can work on sentence structure as they tell you which one is their favorite, what they like, what they don’t like, how the make their at home, etc.
6. Requesting: These are basic food items and should have images on most AAC programs. You can program these into a student’s device and have them ask for each item or a specific food.
Have a tasty time!
