Lessons for Skills Practice over Break: Autism VTips

Of course, as loyal readers of these fabulous pearls of wisdom, you’ve already taken to heart my best advice on sending work home over a school holiday (VTips for a Smoother Thanksgiving Break). And you just knew that I would provide you with a Winter Break version of the visual story, like this one:

And having had a fabulous week exploring the shared user library in VizZle for holiday lessons (because you hopped right on all my suggestions last week in 5 Tips for Finding “The Best” Holiday-Themed Lessons), you realize, “Huzzah! I still have a week left on my free trial!” So you can find exactly the fun and engaging lessons you need for your kids to retain skills over break.

But just on that oh-so-tiny chance you haven’t quite gotten to any of that yet, (and because I just love showing off cool VizZle lessons) here are some common skills practice gems that you might find useful to send home over break.
