Here is our UPDATED Title I Cadre date for the spring. Looking forward to bringing great minds together again to collaborate throughout ESU 16 schools.
Remember, your mental health needs to be nurtured everyday just like your physical health. If you have children in your life, then you play a critical role in not only supporting your own mental health, but supporting theirs as well. Children need love, consistency, connection, and so much more. The little things that we do as adults every day to support their social emotional well being tremendously impacts their mental health for a lifetime.
When a hard of hearing student is learning something new please remember the check in with them to make sure they understand the new concept.
Today concludes Cadre #3 of Teaching Studies for the Wallace Wildcats! In Mrs. Johnson’s classroom we learned about volume and the different ways to figure volume. #WhatInspirESU #BetterTogether

It is important to think about background noise and reverberation in any space used for learning. Some simple ways to make a classroom quieter include the following: Place rugs or carpet in the room. Hang curtains or blinds in the windows. Hang soft materials such as felt or corkboard on the walls. Place tables at an angle around the room instead of in rows. Turn off noisy equipment when it is not in use. Replace noisy light fixtures. Show students how hard it can be to hear when many children talk at the same time. Place soft tips on the bottom of chairs and tables.
How fatigued does a hard of hearing student get?

"Deaf" usually refers to a hearing loss so severe that there is very little or no functional hearing. "Hard of hearing" refers to a hearing loss where there may be enough residual hearing that an auditory device, such as a hearing aid or FM system, provides adequate assistance to process speech.
Teaching Studies in Wallace today centered around Mr. Kershaw’s Geography class! He had his students rapping about Mexico’s culture and enjoying some of their cuisine. #TeachTolerance #WhatInspirESU #BetterTogether
