Students with ASD are very visual learners so I love the idea of using pictures to teach writing. I like the idea of labeling too as it is concrete in nature which is easier for students with ASD to grasp. I have an activity for some of my students in which they label a gingerbread man. The labels are already typed out and all they have to do is velcro them in the appropriate space on the gingerbread man. I do think that labeling can be tricky though and you have to ensure that they aren't becoming so stuck on labeling that they never progress in writing. It may helpful to build on this lesson by allowing students to chose their own picture, something that they are interested in, and encouraging them to write about it! Overall great lesson!

      Great lesson plan! I like the way you used pictures as a writing prompt. Students with ASD are more visual learners therefore they may be more willing to write about what they are seeing. I also like ... more

      I like the way you used pictures to create sentences from. This allows for appropriate writing instruction to happen. This lesson seems to be short but sweet allowing students to learn how to label... more
