The surprises will be student specific. For instance, I know my second grader loves dolls, working with food, looking at herself in the mirror, etc. While my Kindergartener likes bugs (cringes) and cars. So their "surprise" will be waiting for them on Friday. My 2nd grader will have a food activity awaiting her while my Kindergartener will have 2 matchbox cars awaiting him.
They are not getting off easy either. Besides being able to play or interact with the items, they will be doing other things as well. My 2nd grader will need to braille a list of words that describes what she has and the Kindergartener will have to compare the 2 items and tell me the differences in the two....and so on and so on. I'm turning the 'reward' into an ECC lesson. Make sense?
First off, YAY!!! YOU"RE BACK! I love your ideas!!!
Secondly, what a cool idea! I love that your room that you work with students is interactive! How wonderful as so often the classrooms the students are placed in are not at all accessible. I like that you have the students helping you put up their work\words. I wonder what the "surprise" will be...will you share with us?
