What's going on in Room 125?

First Weekly Update: 9-3-15

on September 3, 2015

Hello everyone!

What a great day for a weekly update…I am so proud of the ENTIRE class today! This morning everyone participated, listened, and communicated the most I’ve seen this year. We are still working hard on learning rules and routines and getting into the school groove. Though there are still plenty of ups and downs with this, everyone is making gains and I am just SO proud of them!

You may have noticed your child may come home covered in stickers. This means they were doing great sitting, listening, and/or working during group work! I give these out as I lead the group to my super star listeners as we go. (Some students do not like the stickers or end up taking them off, so if you don’t see any, don’t worry, everyone is doing great!).

Thank you for your flexibility and patience as we get our feet under us. The schedule, communication pages, activities, and overall routines are still being built as I learn more about the students and they learn the expectations. It usually takes about a month the really get rolling with what feels like the “real” schedule. Never hesitate to ask questions about the process until then, but also realize that we’re still in the “getting started” stage.

A few notes/to-dos:

  1. Please make sure to send the “Home-School Communication” binder back to school daily. This is how you and I will communicate about your child, and also how we will send information home.
  2. Please send or email me a family picture if you have not done so already. If you do not have a picture, feel free to draw with your child and write the names. I need something that will be meaningful to them and help me facilitate communication about their family for some friend/sharing activities. I also want everyone to have some of their family/culture represented in the classroom. Students usually seem very excited to see this in the room.
  3. As we get started, much of the class is participating in a snack time. It would be great to offer some variety and exciting choices then. If you are willing to send in some snacks for the class, we would appreciate it! (Thank you to those who did send some to share)
  4. Several IEP meetings will be coming up in the next month. I will be in contact with you as your child’s approaches. This is probably our most important meeting of the year. Please stay tuned and let me know if you have any questions about the process or your rights.

Thank you for helping the year get off to a great start! I can’t get over how much growth is happening in just two weeks. Your support is so important for this. THANK YOU!

-Ms Wales
