I was out today and there were Girl Scout cookies being sold everywhere! Of course I had to buy some (to support the cause). The cookie madness inspired this free autism resource.
Putting Together the Cookie Activity:
1:1 Correspondence is an important "ready to learn" skill. It is the skill of 1 thing goes to 1 thing - in this case 1 cookie to 1 plate. It is super easy to make - just laminate the plate page onto the right side of a file folder, then laminate and cut the cookies. Add one side of velcro to the cookies and attach to the left side of the file folder, and add the opposite side of veclro on each plate.
Students take cookies from the left and put them onto the plates on the right until they are all gone. You can replace the cookie in the activity with your students favorite foods to generalize the concept!
