Two Hoots and a Holler!

Last week we had a Sensory Night at our school.  Students and parents were invited to attend.  This was a workshop for parents to understand how sensory systems develop and impact behavior and learning.  Strategies for parents to use at home and school were introduced to them.  There were stations set up around our gym to give the parents a hands-on experience. Our Title I teacher did an awesome job of organizing this event, and WES staff rocks for lending a helping hand!

While parents were listening to a presentation, the children were having snack and making his/her own glitter calming bottle.  This was right up our alleyI mean just look at all that glitter! I'm sure the maintenance staff was not impressed, glitter was EVERYWHERE!!  But it was so worth it!  Students were bringing his/her bottle to school the next day to show everyone.   
The class with the most attendance in kindergarten through second grade would win a gift certificate to The Sensory Shop in Southaven, MS.  Ms. Jodi’s Rockstars won!  I was so excited to receive this gift certificate!  I can’t wait to go purchase a lot of cool things for my classroom!  Thanks to Walls PTA, The Sensory Shop, and the Rockstars!!

This Week’s Holler
This week’s holler goes out to Stacy Simpson at Simpson's Superstars!  Meeting this lady was one of our favorite treats at the Spring Meet up.  She is enthusiastic and has loads of sparkle and spunk.  This girl has a ton of ideas of her blog.  We love her latest post, "Monday, Made it". 
Be sure to check her out! 
Yea, we got a little crazy!  We will blame it on the sugar!
