Hand Made Hearts

Mrs. Myers folded construction paper in half and drew a heart in marker on the front to create the beginnings of Valentine Day cards. Mrs. Brito’s students were given glue and torn up paper so they could create a collage on the heart. The students also had pencils and crayons, and they wrote messages and drew a pictures on the inside of the cards.

Let It Snow, Let It Snow …..

Mrs. Brito’s class came in and made snow! We tried the baking soda and conditioner recipe, but there are others to try as well. The mixture really does look like snow. We talked about what baking soda and conditioner is used for before mixing them together.

Play-Doh and Special Education

Mrs. Myers ran by Rite-Aid yesterday afternoon looking for a game for Mrs. Brito’s class and found Play-Doh instead. She directed students to make snakes, cakes, and pizza, but there was free-creation as well. Students choose to make snowmen, tacos, and scary faces.

D has autism and Mrs. Brito told me he doesn’t normally like tactile activities. However, D dived right in – not only making a snake (as directed) but also making a bird (a suggestion from Mrs. Myers).
