Wednesday, March 15 - What We Did Today!

Wednesday, March 15

There has been a lot of play partner changes of late.  It has helped bring some kids out and others to be calmer.  It is also great to see the social skills they are using to invite kids to play or ask others if they may play.  It is always more difficult to invite someone new to play rather than stay with those whom you are comfortable.

Mason, Max, and Ben were at the play dough table playing for at least 45 minutes.  Others came and went, but they continued with what they were doing.  I was amazed by this as these kids are usually movers.  Now I am wondering what held them there?  Was it the sensory aspect or the friendship?  Was it just a mellow day for them or are their bodies learning to settle?

Our community work now consists of veterinarian, postal person, and fire fighter.  The kids have been telling me what they know about each of these professions before we read about them to see what new things we learn from reading.  The kids are hoping for field trips to the vet and the fire station soon.  We talked a bit about what they would like to be when they grow up and so far, we have veterinarians, transformers, doctors, ninjas, robots, pilot, and mom.

Our veterinarians were very busy again today.  There appeared to be a shortage of clients which made it more difficult to keep all of the vets busy.  No worries, they found clients in a basket of finger puppets!

Several varieties of soup were available at the soup kitchen.  I choose everything in my soup and it was everything you would hope for!  My thanks to Daniel and Anthony for all of their help today!
