I just finished with the December newsletter and put it on Teachers pay Teachers!! There are 13 different styles for you, so you can pick the one you love the best!!! Here is the link to the newsletter!! Please leave some awesome feedback for me.
Taking the day off to go to the dentist. Not my favorite place at all!!! Hoping for a quick painless visit!!! The waiting is the worst haha!! Just sitting here waiting for someone to dig around on your mouth and point out what you need done :). Smiles - I hope everyone is having an awesome day! It's beautiful outside, but it's calling for rain by the end if the week.
I'm made a packet about standing up against bullying in school. This is a product that I just loved making. I just updated it and I'm hoping everyone loves it!! There is a lot of posters and worksheets for your students to use to learn about bullying and why people do it. And how to stand up and who to go to when you are being bullied.
Having a relaxing Sunday with my family. Husband and son are busy watching tv. I'm sewing Adam a couple pairs of pants for school. I didn't know how to see until Adam needed me too! He has such a sensitive problem with clothes. I'm hoping he outgrows it or is able to wear jeans in a few years. I can only make one style now an they remind me of my grandpa and his favorite pants haha! They are comforable and easy to wear, but not in style at all. But they are fine for second grade. I might just take a class!!!
I'm also putting items in my wishlist for TpT!! Loving all the stores having sales this weekend!!!
I just finished my All about emotions unit!!! This is one of my favorite units I have made so far. This is so helpful with children who have special needs. It is a great learning tool to teach about feelings.
So excited to see the mailman today!!!! Adam will only wear crocs and the bottoms are always slippery. But I found these sweet crocs on amazon!!! The bottoms are just like tennis shoes. They are much better for gym, I am on cloud nine!!!
I have been reading some blogs about autism today. All of the blogs were interesting and informative with good ideas. But my biggest pet peeve is someone saying "the autistic kid" - come on, are you seriously going to use that label???? I have a child with autism and he is just that - a child with autism. Not the autistic child.
For those of you reading this and not understanding what the differences is - here are a couple examples:
1. the diabetes kid or a child with diabetes
2. the cancer kid or a child with cancer
3. the heart problem kid or a child with a heart problem
Now do you see what I am trying to say?
The health, mental, social, physical challenges/problems with children should not be the definition of a child. When I think of Adam - there are hundreds of characteristics that come to mind before autism. And I hope all of the people in his life feel the same way about him.
Well this ends my little soap box rant. I'm off to put Legos together with ADAM.
