Well I have another week and then I will begin teaching Extended School Year (ESY). It should be great as I had many of the students a few years ago when they were in preschool. And, thankfully, we are in a building with A/C.
Beginning in August I plan to write a series of blog posts on 'Managing Student Behavior'. As you know, if you read my 'About Me', I am an Intervention Specialist. I have always had cross-categorical classrooms, which basically means, "Anything Goes". It seems though that I typically have the students with extreme behaviors. Why you ask? No, I am not being punished, lol. I LOVE kiddo's with behavior difficulties, does that sound worded wrong? I have some tried and true strategies that have worked for me and I want to share them with you. I hope you will find the information useful.
Has anyone attended any good Professional Development this summer? I attended a two day Math in-service on our new math curriculum and I was so happy to get my hands on those manuals early. I needed them to get my homework packets done before August. I am also attending a three day in-service on Common Core and Language Arts in August.
Thanks again for following me! I hope everyone had a great weekend!!
