Planning a Mardi Gras Party!

by Daria O'Brien
3rd thru 8th Grades

Planning social get-togethers requires perspective taking and social skills as well as executive function skills.  In other words "social smarts" and "planning/organizing smarts"!  
This 29 page packet includes functional activities to address not only social skills but language skills, including:

  • Vocabulary
  • Sequencing
  • Writing

I went with a unique Mardi Gras theme.  After all, by this time of year we are all ready for some fun, and learning about the Mardi Gras celebration adds to my students knowledge base!

have fun helping your students plan and execute their Mardi Gras party and  “laissez les bons temps rouler (let the good times roll)!
