Yeah...not much going on in my little world right now. Worked a regular shift at work today...HOWEVER, when 8:30 rolled around, I made my way down to Little Man's classroom to volunteer for the next three hours!!! I am so fortunate to be able to help out the way I do, and I appreciate being able to work with children. I think the volunteering gives me "practice".
Little Man has been having some social skills issues lately...yesterday, he BIT another student at recess. This is our first biting incident. I don't know where it came from. I tried to talk to him about it, but he doesn't say much other than he was not feeling mad or angry when he did it. (?!?!?) I don't understand, but he won't sy much more. Today, things might have turned around a little bit. When he came home, he was excited because his "card" stayed on "green" all day His kindergarten teacher has a system of red/yellow/green cards for behavior. The green card means he had good behavior all day. That was good. He also earned a "PRIDE"ticket. When a student shows good behavior, demonstrates pride (PRIDE is also an acronym used for their school "pledge"), helps another student out or just plain does something worthwhile, they earn a "ticket". When the student earns 10 tickets, they get to have a lunch with the principal (whom Little Man thinks is a Rock Star anyway). Little Man has 61 of these tickets now!!! Most importantly, Little Man said that he apologized to the little boy who he bit yesterday. I asked if his teacher or resource teacher or a recess teacher prompted him to apologize. He said, "nope...I just decided to do it on my own. I was sorry for biting him and I wanted him to know". I MELTED. Small steps. Small steps.
Today is day 6 of the 30 day blog challenge...
Day 06- Favorite super hero and why
I have never really been into the whole super hero thing. Now, if you can consider Mickey Mouse a super hero, then he is my favorite. No, he does not wear a cape or tights, but I think he is pretty remarkable. Especially Sorcerer Mickey...he is curious and a little bit mischevious. I think that is all right!!!
That is about all I know for now.
Love to All.
