Here are the work box tasks we are currently doing. 

We are doing pattern block patterns. 

There are sorting beads, animals, straws into containers, and buttons. 

Hot kids love this! 

Adapted Book about what to wear in the winter. You can find this here from Breezy Special Ed. 

I love these playdough dig mats from Shuna. I use them with magnets, felt letters (below), letter stones. 

We have been lacing numbers. You can find the lacing numbers here. 

We did our opposite adapted book. You can find that here. 

Matching animal patterns. 

These number puzzles are from my Christmas Activities Pack found here

Workbasket Wednesday Linkup for Structured Work Systems and Independent Work Systems

Yesterday I had four new students start. Three students in the morning (all still two) and one little guy in the afternoon. With the morning group I had to make quite a few adjustments to how things are being done because the kids are so young and my little ones in the class are not yet independent in any tasks and the new ones coming in aren't either. Here are some of the changes that I made:
I have shortened circle and center time. 
I have included three centers (fine motor, iPad, and academic)

3. Whole Group Play
is now incorporated into our gross motor time so I can teach the kiddos how to play with the different toys. This is also one less transition for these young kiddos to have to make. 
4. Changed my center rotation sticks to include the three centers. 

With the pm class we have been reviewing green and red choices. I have been using comprehension rules stories to accomplish this. You can check these out here. 

Have a great rest of the week!

Listening to the Rose Bowl. We just got back from our friends house where we watched U of M and Notre Dame. Last night we watched MSU...lots of football the last couple of days!

Loving being able to spend time with my husband's family and mine. My sister and her husband came in from KS and my husband's dad came in from TN. It was great seeing everyone!

I also have had the opportunity to do a little bit of crafting...

Thinking about the last minute things I want to get done...lets see how productive I can be the next two days!

Wanting this year to be a healthy one. Last year we spent A LOT of time at the doctor. I am hoping we can avoid that unless it is for a well check up!

Needing to remain stress free. When I go back to work there are A  LOT of changes...five new students starting, more assessing (that is also new), new evaluation process, etc. I tend to get super stressed out over these things and I just need to remember to breathe and relax! It will all work itself out. 

One Little Word...ENJOY! I need to enjoy my family, friends, and my students. Time goes by way too fast and I want to savor every moment! I sometimes get too caught up in what is coming up and forget to enjoy the now!

Link up with Farley to share your Jan. Currently. Happy New Year! I hope it's a great one!
