At-Home Learning Tips

Consistency is Key for Children with Autism
To help your child grow accustomed to the changes of distance learning, stay consistent with your language and pair it with visual guides, especially if they have Autism. For example, schedule blocks of activities that vary by color to offer variety within a structure. For example, tell your child, “It’s time to pick a yellow activity, do you want to do A or B?” Find more tips to support your child in this guide.

ARTICLE: Sesame Street – 50 Years of Representing Viewers Like You
“If ‘Sesame Street’ is any indication, seeing people who represent all of us should be an established, assumed fact and not a novel feature in media.” This Autism Awareness Month, read about how the beloved show evolved into being the standard for representation and diversity on television, and a home for everyone, including people with other abilities, like Julia.

VIDEO: Not Just Any Ol’ Graph
Crack the case of why Sensible Flats ran dry along with the Cybersquad. Discover with them that the water levels started decreasing drastically around the seventh of the month. Your child will learn how to interpret and use line graphs to show trends over time

ACTIVITY: Kids in the Kitchen – Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Just as Leo discovered how a simple grilled cheese sandwich can be a work of art on today’s “Let’s Go Luna!” episode, unleash your mini chef’s creativity for lunch time and allow them to add a new ingredient to this easy recipe for a cheesy classic. If your child has mastered the basic grilled cheese sandwich and is ready to put an international twist on it, test out this Croque Monsieur recipe instead to add a French flair as the “Let’s Go Luna!” team did in Paris.
