Are you having a dress up day on Friday? Our school is dressing up as your favorite storybook character. Last year I dressed up as The Cat in the Hat. I had a momentary memory loss about a student's fear of costumes. When she walked into my classroom, she dropped everything she was carrying and tried to run out of the room. I immediately began taking the costume off to help her calm down. (Yes, I was wearing jeans and a tee underneath!) She finally calmed down after I was in my regular clothes. Since I have my students until they move to the middle school or "graduate" to resource, I have the same students for several years. I decided that I didn't want to terrify her again, so I made Dr. Seuss tees for both of my daughters and myself. We will be wearing these on dress-up day instead of costumes.
