Today was a great (but exhausting) day! We went to Special Olympics with our kids...and they did great! Lots of gold, silver, and bronze medals were awarded and watching how proud the kids were of their medals was awesome!
One thing I like to do to help my kids prepare for field trips, special events, holidays, or days off are calendar worksheets. Since they can't yet answer questions about the calendar, we work together on answering them multiple times throughout the month on these worksheets. The kids love these because they are another opportunity to talk about some the things they are most excited about in the month.
We have a copy of our calendar posted in our classroom and each student has their own copy in their binder as well (which is stored at their desk). We use this calendar when completing the above worksheets.
Well, that's it for today...off to grad classes tonight! I am going to need a big cup of coffee after our all day field trip to help me get through four hours of class tonight!
