Our highschoolers in a class for students with autism were enthusiastic when we described the toast as "Mummy Pizza," so if that works better for you, go for it.
|My SLP buddy and I really like students to do all the steps of our activities, but for the sake of time we pre-toasted the bread.|
|If using a knife to slice the mozzarella was too difficult we cut with a bowl scraper instead.|
|One tbsp. of pizza sauce is spread over the toasted bread.|
|Cut up the cheese any which way you choose and place on top of the sauce.|
|Use black olives or cut-up pepperoni slices to make mummy facial features. Broil for a few minutes, let it cool on the plate a couple of minutes and gobble down your Mummy Toast/Pizza.|
We encouraged students to open the flip-down door of the toaster oven, using a hot pad if needed, but the oven was so hot that we decided to have just the adults place the food in and out, using tongs and a spatula.
Our level of heightened safety precautions really depend on the self-regulation of the students on a particular day, and today there were several "engines" running on high...
