Make your own class lift-the-flap book! Kids LOVE a lift-the-flap book with their own picture in it. A great project for the beginning of the school year. Good for learning names and letter recognition
I'd include a picture of the child underneath the name. this will be the first task of their TEACCH sessions for the day. Perhaps another folder as well with The date, and weather (after having calendar time with the class)
"Guess the Word" (Watercolor paints over white crayon) You could use this with sight words or during a whole group word-work lesson. The kids could make one and trade with a friend.Could use for letters/number.
