Today my University supervisor came to visit. It was in the middle of the OCR block. She got a chance to see my students in action. I got a chance to see my students in action!!! I was so pleasantly surprised by how well they did. It didn’t even seem like a special ed. class. I don’t mean that in a bad way, I mean it in a good way. They were amazing. I couldn’t believe it. The only hints I needed to give them was the name of the S/S card and they got it.
This was an extension of the Voyager lesson that my assistant does with them in the afternoon. In the afternoon, after my assistant returns from lunch, I work with the students on Vocabulary Development & Comprehension, while she works with them on Word Study & Phonemic Awareness. We work on a rotation schedule. She works with one group while I work with another. After 20 minutes, they rotate.
It’s working out swimmingly. I didn’t know that it was working quite so well until I heard them blending today. Let me just tell you that I was very, very impressed. They were simply amazing. I will continue to work on explicitly teaching the S/S cards (I will post on this later in the week.). It is working out like a charm. I could not be more proud of them.
As always, here’s to continued success.
