Dinosaur with Watermelon

Dinosaur with Watermelon

One of my students with special needs made this for me one day. It was touching because I had been working to connect with him in little ways. For example, when I read our Civil War novel to the class, I decided to start having “story-time” on the rug in the front of the room.” By having him sit next to me, he was both closer to the rest of the class and better able to concentrate on what I was reading. He knows the routine and comes running into the class straight for the front at the beginning of each Language Arts class! Every morning when I walk into the side door of the building he gives me a big smile and wave too.
