So, today....the list has pretty much gone by the wayside but everything on it still needs to be done!
Today I started printing summaries of each child's goals/objectives. That quickly led to mini-summaries on little sticky notes. I put all of the stickies in group by grade level on the inside of an old file folder. As I printed each summary I noted the date the IEP would be due and the minutes/week of services for each child. I only did this for the K-3 caseload. I still need to set up my therapy binders for preschool.
In the middle of that I stopped and went to start an assessment with one of the preschoolers. Need to figure out what days a few other attend so I can start their assessments for their annual meetings, too.
When I returned to the room I continued my project until lunch. I'm trying to eat with different grade levels on different days. It's tricky! The K teachers have lunch so early! I might have to skip breakfast once a week and make a point to plan a day to have lunch at K lunch time.
After lunch I looked over all of my sticky notes and within each grade made some preliminary groups. I may need to combine grades at some point but for now the number of groups doesn't look too bad. I've asked Principal and AP for a sit down so we can discuss schedule and so I can get some advice about that scheduling.
After my Chatty Cathy episode I returned to my room and assembled the little shelf I bought. Then I switched it's location with a different shelf. Now I'm back to needing to work on the clutter, lol!
I took a couple photos today. Off to upload them and then I'll come back and post.
The two areas I'm most happy with:
All Ms Bee's bee things in one place.
The soft corner. It occurred to me while reviewing these
photos that I have room in the classroom for a separate
play area. I think I'll move the babies and the pink carpet.
And the two areas that just won't get organized. I'm going to have to have a big cleaning, filing, setting up push these next two days. This frustrates me:
But, I have the new little shelf so that will help.
The office area, looks like I've been at it for a year.
Oh! The little shelf I assembled:
Now that I see these photos I realize that two of those three file cabinets are empty and I can use them to help organize this area. Yay. Two good realizations from looking at photos.
Just because I have been knitting I'm going to post a photo of my current project. I'm participating in a mystery shawl loom along. We have 80+ participating and it's so much fun to see everyone's yarn choices turning into pretty shawls. Here's mine:
