I am sooo thankful to all of you who follow my blog and my stores! I have learned so many things from you and I love sharing my teaching adventures with you! I am the only primary grade teacher at my school and talking to my blog readers and other bloggers is the only way I have of swapping lessons, ideas, and stories. I feel like becoming part of the blogging world was one of the best decisions I've ever made!! Thanks for being a part of it!
Today was one of those days that went by in a whirlwind! I can't hardly remember what we did...
I've decided the entire last quarter of the school year will be dedicated to each student's deficits. I will do my darndest to make sure we fill in those gaps! I teach special ed...there can be a lot of gaps. REALLY random ones! One kid needs lots of vocabulary for naming objects. Yesterday he had no clue what celery was and last week he couldn't think of the word zoo when looking at a picture of one until I gave him a full 5 minutes of prompting. One kinder kid has whizzed through every scrap of kindergarten curriculum I own, but his fine motor sucks. We are doing 1st grade academics with lots of motor skills tossed in between activities. Another boy has most of his academics but still struggling with attention and verbal, so we're working on that. My goal for my last kid is to work on adding longer days. He's on a half-day schedule because his behaviors are too severe when he's doing a full day. He's crazy smart (genius level) so academics aren't a concern. I want to slowly build up his school day length before he moves on to 1st grade.
What are your goals for the rest of the year?
