Today I needed to finish up more testing in reading. This testing is done one on one, so it takes time away from instruction, but it is necessary for planning future small group instruction.
We had a visit from Mrs. Kanter. She read a book called The Invisible Boy, by Trudy Ludwig. This is a book the whole school listened to today as part of Mental Health Awareness month. This is a great follow-up to the book we read last week called I Walk with Vanessa. The book is about being left-out, and how that feels. After listening to the story and talking about it, the children made hearts and drew a picture to show what makes them feel included. These hearts will be hung in our front hallway, along with hearts from the other students in our school.
Have a nice evening!
