I'm not trying to embarrass anyone, but I decided to notice who is online and welcome them further. This is our morning thread where we talk about mundane stuff. My significant other's (SO) mother had a little morning breakfast club in her retirement community. They would sit around with bagels and coffee and chat about what lay ahead in the day. Feel free to tell us what's up in your area. I have double P.E. classes on Wednesday. HMBgal one of those is an adaptive P.E. class where I help out. Those kids all were able to attend the Special Olympics last week. I didn't get to go on the Field Trip as the boy that I normally work with is in an inclusion P.E. class. Personally, I think adaptive P.E. is the bomb. We get to help each kid individually at his or her own level. The group is small, so everyone gets attention. When Jack (the boy that I normally work with) is in the regular P.E. class, all he does is spin in circles. If there is music playing he dances. I like those days, because he is happy and relaxed. But the reality is that for children with autism, sticking them into a giant P.E. class with bunches of kids, is no guarantee that they will participate. Most of those kids just walk aimlessly about. The P.E. teachers are totally overwhelmed with multitudes of issues and simply can't do much to help Special Education kids. I'm so happy that you are helping kids to experience P.E. in a personalized and fun way. It's another cool spring day in Virginia. My irises are popping out all over the yard. The rhododendron are also in full bloom, but I don't have any in my yard. I am enjoying everyone else's.
