~November Spotlight Skill: Following Instructions
This year we have chosen a handful of meaningful social skills to teach and reinforce, with a goal to build on those over time. We talk about the skills in the morning/afternoon announcements, in Guidance classes, and they are also reinforced in the classroom. Working on these skills at home would also help benefit mastering skills over time.
This month we will focus on Following Instructions. During the school day students are expected to follow many instructions. This skill is important; helping students to complete even simple tasks. Below are the steps provided to practice this skill:
1. Look at the person.
2. Say ‘Okay’
3. Do what you have been asked right away.
4. Check back.
~School Store If you do any shopping online, we have a new easy way for you to help support our school in the process! It is entirely optional. "School Store" is a website that can link you to over 400 stores that will donate a percent of your purchase to our school. You can even use HOPE certificates to pay - it's a win-win!! More information will be coming out for you to register (if you choose) so you can send emails to invite family and friends to shop, and your kids can win prizes too! But you don't have to wait and register - to get started now please visit http://www.schoolstore.com/
