Here's what we did with the speech kids on Monday and Tuesday:
Cute, huh? The kids love when we do stuff like this! And, you can incorporate a lot of language & speech into it. I do have a rule: anytime we make something to eat, it's put in a bag for them to take home and eat there. Just in case.
On Wednesday, I saw one of the special ed teacher's decorated door. She really went all out this year:
There will be windows with the kids pictures in it on either side of the door, but I wanted to take a picture before they did that. I told her it was definitely blog-worthy!
Last, but certainly not least, the SRO (School Resource Officer) and the librarian had a little bit of time on their hands on Wed. since there was a school-wide basketball game between the students' teams and the faculty. We only had a 1/2 day and they didn't run the buses (which saves the school system $25000), so there were very few kids at school. Okay, back to those 2 having time on their hands (which could be very dangerous!): The Christmas Tree went up in the office, but there hasn't been a tree topper. Until now.
That's Mr. Principal...he's now on the top of the tree. They had some problems with getting it to stay on top, but, they had plenty of time, so they figured it out! You've gotta keep your sense of humor when you work in an elementary school, people!
Hope everybody had a Happy Thanksgiving! I didn't even get my camera out yesterday; I was just enjoying being with my family and a friend of ours. I also was able to get in some time with my new 4 week old grand-nephew...just sitting in the chair rocking him, enjoying his little sounds and smells. Heaven.
