A short week calls for a short blog post!
Hopefully your child shared with you the fact that we are going to be partnering with some extra special youngsters during our afternoon recess times. I am including a note from their teacher:
My name is Elizabeth Carson and I am the new preschool teacher in the autism room. I will be teaming up with the third grade classes to help bring awareness to autism and to bring some inclusion into my classroom. The third grade classes will send 3 students down each day for 15 minutes of our playtime. Kids with autism struggle with imaginative play, so it will be their job to be a "play model" for our students. I encourage you to ask your child what they learned about the presentation they saw and ask them what they did with my students when they get to visit us. If you have any questions please feel free to let me know! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and stay tuned for autism awareness month in April!!
These third graders are giddy about getting to go to Miss Liz's room!!!!
Here are some talking points from room A210:
