Dressing the Scarecrow

Reading a book about scarecrows and creating one of our own in the class for middle schoolers with intellectual disabilities.  Of course we have to enjoy the textures of each item that goes into making our scarecrow...wouldn't you love to put your toesies in this nice, soft boot???

To save time we decided to explore the soft texture of the boots with our hands instead of our feet.

Oh, go ahead...put BOTH hands in those snuggly boots!

Some items of clothing we explored--a cowboy hat made of woven straw, a soft & warm flannel shirt, smooth denim jeans, fuzzy gloves...the students took turns trying them on to see how everything felt.
