This week the students were introduced to their bench/rug office spaces. The students have been taught to use a clipboard and their laps to do their work. The students worked on a cross word puzzle on the first set of flashcard words for before school work. One of our classroom pets, Gus the hamster spent some time roaming around the rug area in his ball visiting the students as they worked. The students appeared to enjoy this new work space and seeing Gus up close.
