A Week of Giving Thanks: Day 2

It's day 2 of Blog Hoppin's Week of Giving Thanks, and today is the letter H.

I'll be honest. When I looked at the number of students I would have this year, I had a few panic attacks. I have 30 children in the 4th grade alone. And this is supposed to be small group services - 52 kids in three grades does not equal small group. At least not well.

However, I have to say that for the most part the students have been working hard and trying their best. We have our days, obviously, and we have a long way to go, but I've actually been enjoying my crazy schedule and the amount of work that these students have been putting in. Hopefully the momentum will continue through Christmas and the Spring semester!

Oh, and I'm obviously also thankful that my Thanksgiving break has officially begun!


  1. 30 really is too many kids in a classroom. Last year I had 31, 9 of which were on 504s, and 6 on IEPs. It was a really, really hectic year! This year I have a few less, but I still look back and wonder how I made it through last year. Good luck!

  2. Hallelujah! Hard working students are the best!
