A New School Year


Well, it’s back to school for us! Since the first week is always pretty chaotic, we have decided to get our groups up and starting next week. However, please take a look back at the previous years’ blogs if you would like some ideas on how to start your school year.

Some things we have been doing in order to get ready for the year:
-We have planned the themes for each week in order to be prepared. We had not done this the first year we started the groups and it can get very nerve racking when you’re still trying to come up with a good theme the Friday before the week you need it.
-The OT and SLP have gone to each classroom and have planned out when the groups will be so that we can plot individual students around the groups.
-Joy (OT) has started coming up with a list of things needed for the upcoming week on her useful white board while Cara (SLP) has started writing the book that will be used.
-We all have resolved that this is going to be an amazing year and we can’t wait to get started!

We hope you are looking forward to this year as well and that you are able to use our ideas to benefit the little ones in your lives. If you have used any of our ideas and would like to comment on them, PLEASE do! We love hearing from our blog followers as well as anyone else referencing groupbygroup. We are also always accepting of any ideas you may have as well.

Happy 2013-2014 school year!
