Daily School Report #1


Dylan seem to have an OK day today before I sent him to school. We wake up at around 8:45 am and 15 minutes after that we start ABA therapy. He was a bit fussy to see his therapist today but not all that bad. She tried to sneak him yogurt in his sippy cup he wasn't happy about it and so we added some of his pedisure with it and he seemed to be OK with that. He is getting awesome at requesting his cup for us at home. He requests when prompted to pull a PEC off his orange card and hand it to the person holding his cup before he receives it. I love it soon there will be no more cup chucking at mama to get a drink!

Today at school Dylan did the following according to the daily objectives send home sheet sent by his teacher.
  • Imitated action with a ring on the pegs toy.
  • Requested a his bottle ( NUK active cup with soft spout) when prompted with the picture. the teacher hangs the bottle on the in classroom refrigerator, Dylan needs to travel to the refrigerator and get the picture to give to his teacher before she will open the door and let him have it. 
  • Completed fine motor skills by scribbling on his paper .
  • Did sit for 5 minutes at group without adult assistance. Today was in a little rocking chair and the teach gave him a big smiley face for doing so. We have had a little trouble getting him to stay seated at school they were using a high chair style chair with the bump between his legs and her teachers assistant would need to stay seated right next to him the whole time. So this is a HUGE IMPROVEMENT!!! 
His daily classroom actives were
  • Play skills
  • Gross Motor
  • Fine Motor 
  • Snack
  • Morning Work
  • Sensory Activity
  • Calender
  • OT
  • Lunch
  • Handwriting program 
His teacher did note that he was a bit fussy at time during the day but for most of the day he was just his happy little self. also Today he tried a spoonful of apple sauce off of a spoon! the spoon is like Dylan's sworn enemy, he refuses it almost always, so hearing that was so exciting.

All in all I'm pretty proud of my little guy today


As usual I check Jasmine's backpack as soon as she arrives at home.  She has a daily homework folder and a daily planner that I need to check to see what goodies we have in store for the night. Now its been an on-going problem with Jasmine getting her homework home on the nights it needs to be done. While I'm not trying to make excuses for my daughter, giving a locker to a 3rd grader I don't think is the best idea. SO not only does she have to focus on writing all her assignments down in her planner and putting them in her folder and in her desk, she is also switching classes now for different subjects and carrying them class to class. Probably stopping off at her locker in between and letting the clutter pile up. Jasmine thinks the locker is cool, mama does not!

Jasmine's anxiety levels raise with transitions even when shes at home. She can be going from coming home from school to needed to go to cheer-leading practice and feel like she s being rushed even though there is about 3 hour between the 2 activities she feels like the time between is her prepping time to get ready for whats to come. The transition from 2nd to 3rd grade has been a tough process for her and shes still adjusting.

We need to get on track soon because today I received her progress report. She wasn't failing anything but the number of late and missing assignments was  way too many to this mom. What I don't understand though is if a paper is missing for a week, why would the teacher not inform me sooner so I could address the issue that's going on.  

Jasmine and I need to be a little more organized. Which is building into a DIY project I am thinking up to make diaper boxes into a filing system for homework the has been graded and turned in so I'll be able to keep better track  of whats coming home as homework and whats already done.

I'm still super proud of her for her grades, I know shes struggling to adjust and keeping it together well enough to not fail is progress in my eyes.
