The school day went better. I stayed behind a bit later Wednesday to get our little half classroom organized with our charts, posters, seating, etc. for the children.

I reread the one child's student information as I recalled one of them was on medicine for behavior purposes and he was the one. His personality was so very different the day before. I'm thinking his folks were in a hurry to get him to school that morning they forgot to give him the medicine. Sure enough, he was far better, even with the change in rooms. He tried so hard.

I changed the "Chips Club" to a positive reinforcement. To be caught being good earns a check by one's name and earning four checks earns a small bag of chips. Actually he is the highest functioning child and understands this the best.

I've been up on paperwork which I usually stay ahead with for the summer program. But in the move on Wednesday, my lesson plans disappeared so will be spending part of this weekend doing them all over again. I will copy the form so i can fill it out in word and save a copy on my computer or on flash drive next time. I showed it to the lead teacher so she knows I had it done. Before we were told to move she'd suggested I give it to her at the end of the day so they would be available to me for the day. Little did we know that we'd all have to move two hours later. I've not seen the papers since. I'm thinking the teacher who moved into the room accidentally threw them away.

After the children boarded the bus Thursday, we had more paper work to fill out for payroll. I stayed a little after school to get the room ready for Monday.

Meanwhile, one of the teacher's unions sent an email announcing that they will take ideas and publish them for a special newsletter. I think I will do that.
