Back To School We Go!

In true teacher fashion, I am late posting my WELCOME back post!  I am so excited to be in my new classroom for this year (pictures coming soon).  In this classroom, we will be focusing on life and vocational skills with LOTS of academics sprinkled on top!  I can't believe we are already three weeks into the school year.  To catch everyone up here are a few things we have done:
--We had our open house and introduced students and parents to the new classroom.
--We spent our first week learning about each other and the class routine.  We completed our All About Me project.
--The second week of school, we discussed different occupations, completed an occupation packet to determine individual interests, and read about jobs in our community we might like to do!
--This week we have been learning about community helpers, what we do in case of emergencies, and why community helpers are important.  We also have some surprise visitors coming to class!

Some highlights of our new room include:
--A home living station: complete with magazines, a sofa, refrigerator, and microwave.
--A computer station: students are able to play educational games, work on typing, and increase computer skills
--A student work room: students must sign in (and list what activities they complete), after signing in, students are able to complete task boxes or office tasks

We have gotten off to a great start!  Pictures and more posts to come. :)

Keep on learning!
