Let's Cook!

ESY has started! Our second day was spent at the grocery store following a grocery list and collecting items for our weekly cooking. Before leaving the classroom, we had the students come up with the ingredient list for tacos, grilled cheese, and s'mores. 
Then the students collected the items as we went through the store. 
The students used the self check out line to further their level of independence. We held up the line for about twenty minutes, but it was worth it!

Then we finally finished. The students will be making tacos tomorrow!

Dog days of Summer

Sorry, yet another non-work related post but Mr. Jack is the reason! We picked this cutie up on Saturday! Using a lot of positive reinforcement and ABA strategies to teach this pup- same thing we do all year round in my classroom! ( I guess that's work-related) not looking forward to unpacking and setting up an entire new classroom. Jack is distracting me from this stress until we go back. ESY starts next week already! Ah! Then hopefully my room will be cleaned and ready to set up by mid-July. Anyway..here's Jackie boy!
So stinkin cute. Enjoy your Fourth of July!
