Happy Friday! Our first full week of school was a success! We started social skills groups this week and I had a blast meeting with and getting to know new faces around my table! We kicked off our Joke of the Week and Emotional Vocabulary Word of the Week as well as pulled out and dusted off our 5 Point Scale from the summer! All of the groups review the 5 point scale and created their own stress scale, writing things, activities, people and/or places that make them each of the 5 levels. This is one activity that I love because I learn so much about the kids, even year to year. We colored the scale too.
Our joke this week was: "What is the king of all of the school supplies? The ruler!"
Our emotional vocab word of the week was: "thrilled". Children put it in their social skills notebooks under the heading "happy".
Have a super weekend everyone!
