I, like many of you, will not be taking the summer off, but will continue to work with my kiddos in ESY (extended school year). Despite the fact I'll be working, I LOVE SUMMER! ESY is only 4 hours a day and we don't have to follow the same strict regimen of the school year. I am so excited to get to spend some time having fun with my kiddos! All of my students only have behavior goals for the summer, so I get to incorporate lots of social skills, games, and art projects.
This summer, our schedule will be the following:
|Student 1||Student 2||Student 3||Student 4||Student 5||Student 6|
|8:00 - 8:30||Group / Calendar / Binder|
|8:30 - 9:00||Ipad||File Folders||File Folders||Work Box||Work Box||Ipad|
|9:00 - 9:30||Work Box||Ipad||Ipad||File Folder||File Folder||Work Box|
|9:30 - 10:00||File Folders||Work Box||Work Box||Ipad||Ipad||File Folder|
|10:00 - 10:50||Art / Cooking|
|10:50 - 11:20||Lunch|
|11:20 - 11:30||Break / Dismiss|
Group / Calendar / Binder, I will be using the following resources, as well as others:
Work Boxes will include the work boxes we use throughout the year, and I plan to create some new ones. . .
Ipads = educational activities on the Ipad. Some favorites we will use:
(I can't figure out how to get pictures of these Apps, so here are links to some favorites)
- Splash Math (grades K-3) https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/studypad-inc./id432105528
- Monkey Lunchbox (and other THUP games) https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/thup-games/id328205878

- Kindergarten.com apps
And many more. If I figure out how to do pictures, I'll post some other favorites soon!
File Folders = I will use adapted books, file folder activities, and Reading A-Z books during this time
Art and Cooking - Can you believe we have a designated art and cooking teacher for the summer! She will plan activities for this time period. I could not be more thrilled, especially since I have NO creative bones in my body!
So, that's a run down of my ESY. . . what do you do during your summer programs??
