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.
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).
