I remove the pages from JJ's work books and slip them all into plastic sleeves and place them in a three ring binder. This works remarkably and instead of using pages once; I am able to wipe them off and let JJ try them several times.
Today was the first day that I let JJ loose with a crayon on his work book pages. For the last few weeks we have just been pointing to, discussing and learning about some of their concepts. I believe he did remarkably well. You can see for yourself below.

JJ then practiced transferring bubbles with a spoon from one container to the other. Then of course I just let him free play and dump bubbles everywhere and splash water.

JJ and I have been working on sorting his counting bears into into their respective cups. He has become quite proficient at sorting red, blue and yellow, and he is good at sorting three sets of colors at a time. He does become overwhelmed and struggles to complete the task when I add the green and purple as well. Below is a little clip of him sorting bears.

He chose yellow. I put a few drops in the bath and he loved the color. He even liked it so much that he said “YEH” a few times. Which is an amazing thing for a non-verbal. I would like to believe that he really was saying yellow. You can judge for yourselves
