A Visit from the Cromwell Institute

Earlier in March someone from the Cromwell Institute came to our school to teach us about different kinds of disabilities and how we should treat kids or adults with them. These are some of the disabilities and what they are like.
A.D.H.D is when you have trouble learning because, you focus on everything that is going on around you.
OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) is when other things get in the way of your important things and you think you have to do those before you do your other things (Justin Timberlake has OCD).
Autism is when you have trouble controlling yourself and trouble communicating and getting relationships with other people.
Dyslexia is when you have specific learning disabilities such as seeing letters upside down, backwards, and sideways.

It is very important to treat people with disabilities the way that you would want to be treated.

Read Across America Week

We had a great time during Read Across America Week!

Parent volunteers decorated classroom doors with the teacher's favorite book.

World Read Aloud Day was Wednesday!
There were lots of read alouds throughout the day.
We Skyped with author, Laurel Snyder.  She read part of her newest book to us and asked our opinion on the cover design for the paperback version. 

We read aloud to each other. 

Friday was "Seussical" hair day!
