Thanks Jen for pointing out another great idea! This is Sue Patrick's Work box system. I think it is going to work great. The kids can see what needs to get done that day, and it gives me a chance to fill in more fun, hands on learning activities. I like that it teaches independence and sequencing too!

Each child is created in the special image
and likeness of God, for greater things:
to love and to be loved.

"No one is perfect unless you look at him or her through God's eyes. Raising a child with Down Syndrome is basically only different from raising a "typical" child because everything takes one or two steps longer and is done with one or two more smiles”
