In other news, I received a MEEMIC grant for $325 to purchase materials to support "Handwriting Without Tears" for next year! I originally wrote an HVEF grant with Rhonda Shaver when I was in PAL and she continues to use the supplies there to work on letter formation and handwriting. What I will be purchasing will be to help transition kids to lower case letters. There are some cool workbooks and paper that will help kids visually orient and plan their writing. I will also be purchasing a LOT of small golf sized pencils with erasers to share between our program and Mrs. Schanen! If you follow Lakewood's Facebook page there is a picture of the money hand off. I feel so fortunate to be chosen out of all the applicants all over the state!
Have a nice weekend and I will see you for our last full week of school! I can't believe it!
