Our Classroom


I love this circle map that my kindergartner and first grader created about our classroom.They're with me for an hour a day, and sometimes they exhibit behaviors that I know they never would in their general education classrooms, so I used this circle map as a kind of "re-set."  I wrote the words, but they dictated everything on the map.  My initial prompting questions were about behavior, but I LOVE that the first things they listed were all academic-- practicing our sounds, practicing my letters, reading books. "Don't be scared" really tugged at my heartstrings, as it came from my little guy that is frightened by everything-- the cacti on my desk, pictures of snakes or spiders in a book, and even flies! 

Have a fantastic Monday!
