Today was the last day of our extended school year program. I can’t believe how fast our program went this year! We went on a community outing to get ice cream so that we could celebrate all of the hard work that our students put in this summer! We prepared for our community outing by reading stories about ice cream shops and explored various ice cream menus. We also completed a survey and each of our students stated which flavor/toppings that they liked the best. Then, I created an ice cream menu with pictures of the flavors and toppings to help promote independence. I also added a verbal prompt card with blanks so that the students could role play ordering their preferred treat of choice. This card can be taken to the ice cream shop to help increase independence with communication skills. If you would like to use this *FREEBIE* with your students and/or children click on the link below.
My students did a tremendous job generalizing these communication skills into the community. Who doesn’t love ice cream on a hot summer day?
