Wow! I can't believe it's already the 3rd six weeks! During the past 2 six weeks, not only have our students been learning about fall, harvest, and Thanksgiving and other academic subject areas, they have been very busy learning our classroom routines, rules, and expectations. The students have been working on communication and learning that they have a voice and can express their wants and needs through their individual communication systems. They have been learning their schedules and what comes next. And, they've been learning important social skills like interacting, playing, sharing, and being kind to their friends. We have enjoyed getting to know each of our students and learning each one's specific preferences, strengths, and needs. This six weeks we will be learning about the winter season and all the wonderful things that happen in the winter. So far we have had fun making ornaments, decorating our Christmas Tree, making Christmas Crafts, shopping at Wal-Mart, and we enjoyed a party with Santa and gifts sponsored by Trane!
