When the going gets tough, the tough get going....

If the first week of therapy sessions with my students is any indication of what the rest of my year looks like, I will have a very social skill filled life. It is very unfortunate that I forgot to request any materials related to social skills. Next year's request form will have some Michelle Garcia Winner products on it if I have to sticky note every wall near my computer at home & work to remember. 

This year, I will just have to make the best of it by making things on my own and cruising Google for freebies. My first project is a Feelings Diary that I can use with my younger group. It's black and white due to the fact that I don't have access to a color printer. It's really annoying when you want to print out cute stuff and don't have the ability to print in color. Students can color the kids in whatever way floats their boats as long as the writing can still be seen. I plan on letting the ones that are able write their own statements. It will help them practice grammar, capitalization & punctuation, and work on some fine motor skills. The other ones will get to dictate to me and then trace over the yellow highlighter marks.
