Happy new year everyone! We have all settled back into the school routine in Stepping Stones by now. The biggest change in the unit is that we now have an amazing up-and-running sensory room (we have been calling it "The Forest") which is filled with artificial trees, logs, grass and animals. The children have all been given individual slots during the day where they can unwind in the here watching and listening to the sounds and images of the forest on the projector and speakers. This month we have done some experiments with vinegar and baking soda to make a volcano erupt as well as a rocket to launch! On top of this, I have continued to increase the amount of integration for some of the children into their mainstream classes.
