Hissy Fit Dip Recipe - sausage, sour cream, Velveeta, muenster, onion and garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce and parsley - SO good. You will definitely throw a hissy fit if you miss out on this dip! Crazy good! Can mix together and refrigerate a day before baking. Serve with chips and veggies! It is always gone in a flash!
A visual system for getting dressed. The child matches the chip to the correct bin and then puts on the article of clothing. For early introduction of this system, an adult can flip up the "signs" as that step is complete (seen here with the red sign). You can also put matching pictures on the chips as well. In this version, we used the icons found on a child's AAC device for added support. Over time, you can fade the chips and just have the colored bins lined up in order.
Two-step equations paint-chip card. Boo-yah original pin. Doing this in class on Monday!!! Could also use this to review basic ELA skills, one for each color, or a timeline for history forcing students to find the four most important/significant dates!
