Love is in the Air

This week we learned about personal safety (in addition to celebrating Valentine's Day, of course).  We practiced what to say if someone we do not know knocks on the door (I encourage everyone to practice this with your students!).  We also discussed different ways we stay safe in public and at home and different functional signs.  In math small groups, we are learning about division and skip counting.  In reading, we are working to identify different blends.  We also continued working on identifying mood and setting in different short stories and plays.  Of course, we are still doing our community-based instruction.  They students are doing a wonderful job, and they are truly an asset to their assigned business.

Students work on their division skills during small group math.

Great ideas about being safe at home and in public from our students!

 D'Shawn, Sydney, and Sheron help make the beds for the animals at the Autauga County Humane Society.  This is their community-based instruction placement.  Great job, guys!
Students are attending their community-based instruction placement one time per week for approximately 2 hours per week.

You know we could not have made it through the week without celebrating Valentine's Day!

Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Mink for helping us decorate our Valentine's boxes!

 A couple of Valentine mummies! 

 Trip enjoyed making his candy heart bar graph in class on Valentine's Day!

Great job, Nicholas!

This week we will be learning about dressing ourselves and shopping for clothing.  We will also be working on a Presidential report.  I hope everyone had a great Monday off and is ready to get back to work tomorrow!
