I’m excited to be linking up again with Stephanie at Forever in 5th grade for another Tuesday of “Show and Tell”. I have been working on a lot of different projects since last month!
Special Education Parent Resource Night
We will be hosting our first ever Special Education Parent Resource Night in a couple of weeks and I have been busily planning the night’s activities. Parents can choose from 12 different mini-sessions that will be provided by special education teachers, OT, Speech Pathologist, Counselor, or myself to attend. Each session will have “Make and Take” materials, so parents can begin working with students at home immediately with different tips and material. I’m really looking forward to this night and will write an article about it after it takes place detailing all the different components and ideas!!
We had a lot of fun with making Valentines this year…..we actually made almost 100 Valentines between a staff of teachers, 2 preschool classrooms and teachers, and coworkers. Here is a little sample of all of the different Valentines we made…..”Superhero lollipops”, “Shooting for Brownie Points”, “Thanks for putting your heart into teaching”. I have to admit, I am pretty obsessed with Pinterest and all the amazing ideas you can find, so I can’t take credit for any of these as original ideas!
This month we have picked the book Raindrop Plop for our book buddy. We are still working on all the different activities, but the picture below is a sampling of what we have done so far. The girls LOVE creating book projects each month. We would love to expand this “project/idea”, so if you have a child between the ages of 2-4 and would like to join in the fun, let me know and I can send you all the details!
Giving Parent Positive Feedback
I just finished a product, that gives parent very specific, positive feedback regarding behavior. So often, parents of challenging students only hear the negative comments and feedback, the purpose of this product is to send home a quick, simple note that gives very specific behavior feedback. These notes partner with Behavior Badges and can be used in conjunction with them!
