It's been a while since I posted some activities... So here is our current favorite. Noodles and Pom Poms.
What you need:
Large pasta noodles
Assortment of colorful pom poms
Ice cube tray
Tongs and large serving spoon
I started by showing him how to scoop the poms out and sort them.
Key words: "scoop it!" and "put it in the tray" also, "pick it up"
Positive reinforcement words, "good job buddy!" "You do it!" "Show me"
Constantly repeat, "don't eat it" and "out of your mouth!"
