Don't be a GRINCH! Follow the code!

I might just enjoy Christmas a little too much.  I always check myself that I am not just "making crafts" because in speech therapy we target GOALS GOALS GOALS! 

Our school has adopted the Code of Conduct-consisting of 4 rules- Responsible, Respectful, Trustworthy, and Safe. 4 simple rules allows for maximum memorization, and almost anything students do can fall into 1 of the 4 categories.

I had students fill out "ornaments" to target social skills, vocabulary and syntax, that said "This holiday season I will follow the code by being____"

First, talk about your school rules and examples for each one as a group. Then have each student pick a rule and a way they will follow them at home over the winter break. For example: Helping mom clean up toys without being asked or not fighting with brothers or sisters and so on. 

I got some creative responses! We shared them all as a group, and students got to decorate the tree. Now my massive speech mirror looks festive!
