lil' rascal

i forgot my digi cam yesterday when rascal & i took off for school. but no biggie>>>we still had a busy day & i had a plan "b"... i had some of my students draw pictures & "thank you" notes to rascal's home school in st. louie. i told the kids that rascal's visit is almost over & he'll be going back home soon...to missouri?!, exclaimed one student. yes, to missouri, i said. awwwww! why can't he stay & live with us?!!, many of them said. his friends & home are in st. louis & he has to go back there. at least you all got a chance to meet & have fun with rascal, i explained. okay, but we will miss him!!!! they sniffed. the above are examples of some of the things going back with rascal...his week's stay with us will be over next tuesday & i don't go back to the school until next wednesday...so that is why i had the kids draw & write during their therapy sessions... it was amazing for me to see how much communication & love emerged just by the mere presence of rascal! it was wonderful to witness this in my autistic students. so angie wangie, it is i who owes you BIGtime! who knew that a little stuffed animal would bring such large rewards? Posted by Picasa
