Though we've been homeschooling for almost two years now, we still utilize Tate's D/HoH teacher under his IEP. We meet with her once a week and work on keeping Tate exposed to ASL.
One of his goals for this year was to follow signed two-step directions.
Is it just my boys or do most boys want to jump right in as soon as they've grasped the very first step?
Instructions? Who needs 'em! I know what I should do...
So our wonderful D/HoH teacher thought of something that would appeal to three boys, in hopes of getting them to slow down and pay attention.
They made origami tanks.
It wasn't until we walked up to the office, carrying our projects, to sign out and leave that it hit me. If there were any liberal-weenie teachers in the vicinity we could be in big trouble. "Why?" you may reasonably ask?
Well, obviously, we were in flagrant violation of the Official School Anti-Weapons Policy!
You think I'm kidding, right?
Wyatt had a teacher who confiscated his drawing of a wartime scene showing a submarine being hit by a torpedo.
Well, she was obviously taking her responsibility to keep students safe very seriously.
Which does make me wonder, are they even allowed to learn about wars anymore? How do they think we got our independence? Talking the British to death?
