Jumping Right Into 2015!

on January 8, 2015

Happy kids jumping high - isolated

 

First week back to school in 2015 has not been an easy transition for any of us.  Whether we like it or not we have to get back into a groove.  So, in the words of Van Halen, “might as well JUMP!”.

One of the 3rd grade Lunch Buddies approached me first thing Monday to talk about setting a new goal (I was thrilled).  In several of our groups, we are learning to use Sarah Ward’s “note to self” strategy.  Some continue to need the visual support of an actual Post it note to remind them of a certain expected behavior.  A few others have felt the positive outcomes of that behavior in such a way as to create a memory.  Now just a quick verbal reminder of “note to self” works quite well.  They are working toward a self-directed reminder.

Cariboo is such a versatile game.  I switch it up all the time.  Just recently found this game custom made for Cariboo.

Not only is it great for articulation but also for word retrieval.  The K and first grade groups really like it.
