    Life skills

    I worked with this type of program for 1 year. We worked on things like brushing teeth, good hygiene, exercise, getting along with and helping others, for math we did shopping. If they can write at all, it is a great idea to pal up with a similar class in another school and have pen pals. If you set that kind of thing up early in the year it will be a great learning experience. We really worked on basic Lifeskills. We set up a routine with pictures that represent each activity and went over it in the morning. Just think of what an adult in their situation will need to know. They will need to know how to read (hopefully they can), how to interact with people, how to to set up and follow a daily routine, how to write, count, do basic math computation. It will all depend on the level of the children.
