Now, onto Trick-Or-Treating. Regardless of if our students are able to go in their neighborhoods with their families or not, we like to include a mock trick-or-treating around our school to give our students the life experience and/or practice. Since my school has 4 autism classrooms, we go trick-or-treating to each of the other classrooms as well as our speech therapists' room, the office, and the case managers office.
We walk the kids from room to room, line-up, and have each kid take a turn to say (or use PECS to say) "Trick-or-Treat" in order to get a piece of candy. (We ask each family to send in a bag of candy so that we have enough to go around).
Also, when we are in our classrooms, the other 3 autism classrooms come trick-or-treating to our classroom. This way, my students get a chance to hand out candy as well.
