Need to increase participation in small group or behavioral momentum in therapy sessions? Do Not Touch (by Nickelodeon) is so much fun! The app will ask you to find a flat surface and after scanning, a green “Do Not Touch” button will appear in front of you and your students. Obviously you HAVE TO push to see what happens, right? ABSOLUTELY 😆 Each time the user taps the button, a cool 3D animation (slime machine, rocket blasting off, banana surprise) or a fun little mini-game (whack-a-monster...) appears.
During small group, I set a timer (it’s different ever time to increase the surprise element) and students draw a mini eraser (5 pumpkins and 1 apple 🍎) out of a bag/container to determine who will get to press the button. #donottouchapp #nickelodeon #smallgroupinstruction #arfunstuff #iteach #iteachtoo #iteach365 #schoolslp #funapp
Calling ALL education professionals... Have you heard about the awesome app SIT WITH US. The FREE app allows you to sign up, create a personal profile; search for friends to connect with or ‘Lunches” nearby that you can join.
Anyone who has endured the insecurity that comes with high school friendships and the strong desire to be accepted will understand completely and be so grateful. There is something so genuine and innocent about asking someone to sit with you at the lunch table; such a perfect gift from someone who has the blessing of popularity to share it someone who deserves it too. We’re all in this together and at some point on your walk to maturity, you realize we’re all the same, but that doesn’t always happen in high school.
As everyone returns for the 2018-19 school year, I was thinking 🤔 wouldn’t this be an amazing way to welcome new coworkers, teachers, SLPs... Do you ever feel like an outsider as an educator or related service provider? I have while working in a previous district and it was misery. I love the brilliance of this app for high school students; however, I believe teachers, related service providers, classroom assistants and related staff could benefit from the kindness and thoughtfulness this app ignites. 💖 #thoughtfulteacher #kindnessinschool #iteach #iteachtoo #iteach365 #schoolslp #teacherlife #slplife
