What a busy week! We finished up our clothing study and started our new study about balls. We spent 2 days this week practicing for our fashion show on Monday. We are so excited and can’t wait to show you all our wonderful clothes we made. We have just started talking about balls and what we already know about them. We hope they are looking for different things around the house that are ball shaped.
***Fashion Show Reminders***
Where: Pyrtle Multipurpose room (students know this as the gym they play in)
When: 5:00-7:00 Monday the 10th
What to bring: Your student, a dish to share if you can, something to take pictures
Things to know: Please being your student in. We will take them to the back of the cafeteria and help them put on their clothes they made. Short sleeve shirts are easier to put the clothes over. Students can wear their PJ’s if they want. We will be having both classes walk at the same time down our runway. They will walk up and down the runway. You can get a good view from both sides. We hope for the students to come back and sit together after they walk. If they come to you and do not want to finish walking we will not be making them leave you. We will be playing music they chose to walk to. After all students have walked down the runway we will have them come to you and we can all try some wonderful foods that are a tradition in your families. We will be bringing recipe cards to our home visits this month for you to fill out and make into a recipe book. If you would like to get ahead of the game here is a link to the sheet we will be brining. While we are eating we will be giving out some wonderful information about how to help your student become a reader.
In small groups this week we put together a book about what we made for the fashion show and made some posters to hang up during our fashion show. We also tie-dyed some handkerchiefs to carry with us during the fashion show. Today we had fun in small groups learning how to dribble the ball with our hands and feet, we also practiced bouncing and catching a ball.
In Second Steps this week we talked about Managing waiting. We talked about calming our body again when having to wait for a long time. While we are waiting there are strategies we can use to help. We can count or sing a song quietly while we wait. Below is the home link to that you can use to help with these strategies at home.
GOLD reports were finished up this week. We will be sending them home on Thursday this coming week. Please take some time to look at these and let us know if you have any questions.
Thank you for all you do to help your student learn and grow. We hope to see you all Monday evening for our show.
Mrs. Losey and Ms. Jamie
