So you ask with interest, what materials do you use during your daily four hour session? Answer: Each teacher referring a student to the program is to send the materials and supplies necessary to carry out the objectives being worked on. I was a bit worried that the materials provided would not last us the four weeks so I went to my classroom and gathered materials and games, based on their objectives. I have the session all organized and planned out for the first day. Hmmmm, thought of the day, ..."Smile and Teach On"....or "When In Doubt Improvise", because everything I planned was WAY too hard. Side note: when preparing a craftivity make sure you have glue, scissors and markers because you may have difficulty with assembly without them. So, the plan? Throw out the plans and start again.
Day Two: Activities are better, students are engaged for the most part minus a temper tantrum or two. Some things are still too hard though. So today when I got home I raided my boxes in the garage from when I taught preschool and loaded the car with activities. Let's give tomorrow a try...
How many more weeks does this program last?
Have a fabulous week!!
