3. E quipment needed: letters of the alphabet on paper, pencils, a bag

4. First, you are going to get a blank square with no letters on it. Next, you are going to pick 7 letters from the bag and lay them out in a line. After, you will have 2 minutes to make a word with the following letters. Also, this is where you may use your blank square and use it has a “ fill - in ” letter however you may only use it once. You do not have to use every letter but the longer the word the more points you will get. After you make your word, you will be read your word out to the class and you get one point for every letter you used in your word. You will play 5 rounds of th is. The purpose is not to see who win s but to help with something like intellectual disabilities with something as simple as spelling out words.

5. T he primary interaction pattern would be Aggregate because this is an activity where you are directing your attention to a specific object, in this case, the letters. However, you are also doing it with people from around you will they are engaging in directing their attention to thei r objects. Also, you are not performing this activity together or interacting with each other so that is what makes it Aggregate.

6. T he disability I chose to adapt this activity to was people with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Autism is a disorder that impairs an individual to be able to interact in a social setting and their ability to communicate. The adaptation I would do this activity would be instead of doing this as an indivi dual activity, split them into partners. Splitting them into partners instead of smaller groups would allow them to socialize with one person to figure out a word to create together. I would start with partners instead of several people in a group because that could make them anxious. However, after every round, I would have them switch partners so they get to interact with more than just one person. Also, as they get more comfortable with talking to each other and working together than possibly make the groups larger to either three or four once you see progress with their socializing skills.
