Who has started planning for the kiddos. I know that I have. I am making sensory bottles today. My kiddos love them and it calms the kiddos with autism. They are super easy to make and much cheaper than buying them. They are super easy to make.
Fill the bottle with the oil and add the glitter. Then put tape around the lid to keep it on.
Have fun experimenting with different things. I am putting letters in one to make it a reading activity.
I hope everyone is enjoying their time off. I know that both me and the students needed it. We were all getting on each others nerves. I am glad that we are able to relax and recharge for another 5 months of school. I am planning on relaxing and not doing much of anything during the break. What are your plans?
The students have been crazy this week and it is only Tuesday. They are excited about winter break and want to start early. We are TESTING this week. Who in their right mind puts testing a week before break. Shaking my head. I have told my kiddos to do the best that they can and let it go. I am ready for a break and I know that they are as well.
I hope that your week started out like you wanted. I know that mine has. With the end goal in mind, I know that I have been calmer than I had been previously. I have my to do list shorter and it has helped me finish everything for that day more effeciently. I know that some days I will have more to do than others but they will be farther apart and not as demanding as what I was doing. It has helped me to learn to say no. What has helped you find peace?
