Hi, I don't know what to specify myself as. Currently I am working as a para-professional ,in special education. We are working with students to learn their dolch words. With the video games and other technology students have at their disposal, reading sometimes has been boring. Last week week we were brainstorming about poetry and rhymes to learn ideas. I looked up the poem, ( on line because I couldn't remember all of it) Thirty days hath September... when a student said they needed a calendar to check for number of days in a month. What a novel idea to teach a song.
