Good Morning! It's a pretty day! As I type that I am remembering how my son, as a toddler, would come into my bedroom and lift one of my eyelids as he cheerfully proclaimed it to be a great day. How could you not smile in the face of such enthusiasm? With that in mind, I hope you let the small things make big changes in your life this week!
Following up on my theme of the day (letting small things make a big difference) I want to introduce you to Jill Kuzma, a small blogger that will make a big difference in your therapy. http://jillkuzma.wordpress.com/ She may be new to many of us but her blogs are packed with delightful resources that you can readily use in therapy! She calls her Blog "Jill Kuzma's Social and Emotional Skill Sharing Site" offering "Ideas for Educators Supporting Social-Emotional Skills." Who couldn't use that?
Here is a list of the many things you will find there:
