Fourth Quarter

I cannot believe the third quarter has ended.  Be sure to check report card envelopes for third quarter progress notes.  Report cards go home Friday, March 30th.  I will be meeting with many parents during upcoming IEP meetings.  Below are some highlights for the next quarter:

Social Group: We began our unit on problem solving last week.  We will continue with problem solving and then move onto social inferencing and perspective taking to round out the school year.

Ms. Padolina's Classroom Language Group:  During the month of April we will be reading about spring, Easter eggs, and gardens.  We will continue use adapted books, interactive games, and cooking activities to focus on and work on carryover of IEP goals/objectives.  Upcoming themes include Farm and Zoo animals for the month of May.

One more week until Spring Break!  I hope you all have a wonderful break with family and friends.

Social Skills Topics

We just finished up our unit on conversation skills.  During the months of March and April, we will focus on problem solving skills.  We will round out the school year with social inferencing.

March Theme for Ms. Padonina's Class

During the month of March we will be learning about St. Patrick's Day, Leprechauns, Frogs, Bugs, and Bunnies.  We will continue to address story comprehension, expressive and receptive vocabulary, turn-taking, and following directions.
