i have been assigned to work with a teacher in a classroom with children diagnosed with autism. two of the children i've known since they were 3 from another center that i worked in. i'm there from 8-1:30 every week day.the assignment ends 1-14-05. this is the first time i've worked in a classroom that is a kinder/1st room. the rest have all been pre-k. i don't want to step on the teachers' toes but the room and the schedules need improvement. there are no props for circle time , no music. all we do is check schedule with the pecs and do everything else with pecs. the room is not set up badly, the children do have color coded centers to go to and that works ok, but it needs something else. for example, yesterday i worked with a child who is pretty high functioning and working toward mainstreaming. we sat and did endless language arts worksheets for at least 30 minutes! it was so hard to get him to sit down. once he sat down he could do it. i just think these children need more hands on experience. like finger painting the letters, making letters with sand. matching letters to the objects but hands on that requires no pencil. then i learn that this is the teachers first year and he has a degree in english not child dev. so my question is to you mothers with a k or first grader in special ed and who has been diagnosed with asd, what does your childs' classroom look like?

what materials are used to teach language arts?
