Each day feels so long right now--maybecause I started it with a flatt tire and calling AAA and ended it with a trip to get the tire fixed and remounted! Well- glass cut it so badly I had to buy a new tire!
I have to clean my classroom!!!! I can't seem to get at it. At least I thought of some simple ways to keep students involved. My students don't do well if you leave them too much free time. I would love to clean while they do paperwork but it won't work. Darn.
I bought a little game online. It is a small box of dice with pictures (symbols ) on each side. About 8-10 dice. I had each student take 2 and first pick their favorite symbols to tell a story. After they understood the game, I had them roll the dice and use whatever symbols came up. This group had a tough time. But I think they can improve with practice. I have other groups which will do it more easily. (All of my classes are high school deaf with special needs besides deafness.)
