I love spring. Nuff said.
Well maybe not, I love winter, too & summer and fall. I like seasons that’s why I’m chilling in the big OH-IO. haha.
But, Spring. Being able to see trees turning green, flowers blooming, and butterflies growing this time of year is my favorite.
Butterflies. Oh yes. I bet you were all on the edge of your seats wondering how well my class’ caterpillars have faired, I mean after all, one did get thrown.
Well I am happy to report that they did not get thrown this week. Score. That’s a win in my book people, deal.
& I’m pretty sure they are still alive. Well, I mean the did decide to turn upside down and make a cocoon, so it’s not like they are moving much anymore, but I’m pretty sure they are still alive. Only time will tell.
Well, I have some pictures of their transformation.
I wish I could share with you the reactions that I received from my student’s when they saw what was happening. It was priceless. They were all very excited.
So excited in fact, I have kids, begging me, I repeat, begging me to stay in the class and not go to the inclusion times. I tell them we will wait until they get back to talk about anything and that is the only way that they are able leave the room.
Never thought these lessons would be such a hit.
Since this is Autism Awareness month, I made a reader and a lesson plan companion for general education teachers.
You can find it here. Yes. It’s Free.
You may have already heard about it. I’m not sure. I’ve gotten a good response so far. I have to give a shout out to The 3am Teacher, Michelle. I contacted her a week or so ago and asked her if she was able to make some Autism Awareness Clip Art. She graciously accepted my request and a week later, voila. She posted A HUGE 4 Piece Set. It’s pretty amazing. So if you are looking for anyone to make you clip art, check her out. She is a sweetheart to boot!
Also, I was excited this week as I was a first time guest blogger!
It was so exciting Check it out HERE>
And A big shout out to Christine Reeves from Autism Classroom News for actually letting me do it.
Here’s a funny for you.
A few weeks ago we got out class pictures taken and our Spring pictures taken along with them. Well Yesterday these beauties show up in my school mailbox.
EEeek! What am I supposed to do with these babies?
There’s like 32 of them or something. I plan to file them in a box in my basement somewhere I think, Although my sister is wanting one so she can use it as blackmail at a later point I’m sure.
Well, I hope you are having a good week. Or Weekend.
Let the count down begin.
