Does anyone else feel like this?

Yeah it's been one of those weeks but non the less it has been a fun week. We have to applaud a show we grew up with as kids and that is Sesame Street. I am not sure if you are aware but late last week they made a monumental announcement but introducing their viewers Julia, their first autistic character. Jeff decided to use this teachable moment in his class and had a discussion with his students about the significance of it. You have to love when that happens. 
Tell us how your week went. AS well good luck surviving the sugar rush.

Well another week is in the books. If your are here in Canada it was a short week due to Thanksgiving. If you are our one of our neighbours to the south you might have celebrated Columbus Day. This week I was reminded how important it is to have a nice supportive staff when I walked into my classroom yesterday and this was done. Sometimes being paired with the right teaching partners can make the difference. Remember to share that with them because sometimes they might need the reminder. 

My classroom has also caught some Blue Jays fever. Only cure for it is winning!!

Happy Friday!

Today I am thankful for coffee.

This weekend Canadians will be celebrating Thanksgiving.  How have you and your class celebrated for this up and coming holiday?

One of my favourite ways to celebrate Thanksgiving is to remind my students that we need to remember to be thankful for all we have each and everyday. 

Here are a few activities to get your students in the Thanksgiving mood. 

How will you be celebrating Thanksgiving with your class?
