In social skills the kids did a lot of Dr. Seuss activities and we read the books, "Cat in the Hat", "Hop on Pop" to practice rhyming and talk about how the author gives silly illustrations and concepts throughout his writing. We talked about how the words do not always follow the same spelling patterns like -op and -op endings. Sometimes the endings are things like too and blue. They do not look the same but sound the same. We talked about how to chase out the cat in the hat if he came to our home! We read "Green Eggs and Ham" and again talked about rhyming words and word patterns. We started to talk about how we need to use a social filter by using our thought bubble. I decided to push this topic back so we could participate in the Dr. Seuss fun for Read Across America.
The last little bit I need to share is about Mrs. Reece. Her doctor has placed her on bedrest effective immediately, so we are working on getting a long term sub in for her. This is earlier than she would have liked, but needs to do what is best for her health and the health of her baby boy. I will have some additional responsibilities to make sure things are running smoothly with all the kids in the program. Please make sure you call in any absences, early pick ups, or things of that nature. I will not be able to check email as readily or quickly, so if it is urgent it will be very important that you call the office and have them take a message. Thanks for understanding!
Save the date for our Blue Out! April 12th!
