Art projects have been very popular in our class this year. I have found that student's are able to follow the instructions more easily after they have seen the finished product. The Smart Board has been invaluable. The latest painting project came from the Grade 2 Smarties website. The blog gave detailed instructions which I left up on the Smart Board after showing the students what the painting should look like. My students definitely gave them their own personal touches. I think that ours are very beautiful. This is the only bulletin board display where other teachers (and the principal!) have come in to tell us how beautiful the trees are. Thank you Mrs. Sandberg!
This is my second year as a District Behaviour Support and Intervention teacher with the New Westminster School District. My focus is on students who are having serious challenges with self-regulation across many domains - biological, emotional, cognitive, social and prosocial - at school, at home and in the community. My role is to provide support to teachers and teams to create an environment for success for the student.
