Welcome Back!!

Welcome Back! I hope everyone had a fabulous summer! We are excited to start a new school year!  This year we have a new room and we are so excited to utilize it to the fullest potential.  The new room features individual direct instruction rooms, a sensory room, a circle time area, and a computer center!  Each student has their own personal space for their belongings as well.  Our parking lot of equipment is full again and we are so excited to use each and every piece!  We have a display wall outside of the classroom that features student work! We are so proud of our students and want them to be able to show off their accomplishments! 🙂

Another fun addition to the special education department is our sensory room.  All students who receive special education services have access to this room and its just down the hall!  The sensory room features a therapy swing, a tunnel, mats for stretching, bean bags, sensory items, a fish tank and much more!

The students have really enjoyed getting comfortable in our new room.  We have started learning our schedules and routines as well.  Students are supported in their learning by the classroom’s fabulous team of teachers, therapists, para-educators. Each student has had multiple opportunities to be apart of their inclusion classrooms and are enjoying getting to know their teachers and friends!

August is almost over already and I can’t wait to see what September holds!

 

Happy New Year!

Welcome Back!  I hope everyone had a great Christmas and Happy New Year!  We are off to a great start! I am excited to be back! We are ready to start 2015 with lots of fun learning activities! This month we will be celebrating MLKJ Day and the 100th day of school!  We will be learning about winter weather and community helpers!  Special Education has an Special Olympics Bowling Tournament this month.  3rd grade will also go bowling and 2nd grade will be going to Golden Flake.  It’s going to be a fun and busy year!

Off to a great Start!

The 2014-2015 school year is off to a great start! We have spent a few weeks meeting our new friends and learning about each other.  We have started settling into a routine and have gotten familiar with our classroom procedures.   Lots of learning is well underway and we are are excited to see what the school year holds!
