Only what employers are looking for; and vital for our students. As an SLP, these are my &quot;unwritten goals&quot; for my students. Being able to work on teams, self-advocate, and work collaboratively are key to future success.&nbsp;<br /><br />Link is below:<br /><a href="https://leader.pubs.asha.org/doi/10.1044/leader.FTR2.24122019.52#.XfKRwuDUGM4.email">https://leader.pubs.asha.org/doi/10.1044/leader.FTR2.24122019.52#.XfKRwuDUGM4.email</a> Thu, 12 Dec 2019 11:10:48 -0600 http://www.d70schools.org/teachersites/view.php?tid=200&cid=504#18558 Attitude o Gratitude http://www.d70schools.org/teachersites/view.php?tid=200&cid=504 <img src="http://www.d70schools.org/teachersites/files/anc_photos/18538.png" style="float:left; margin-right:3px;" /> Wishing all my students and families a relaxing and FUN Thanksgiving Break. We&#39;ve been busy this month keeping up with class vocabulary and the &quot;so what?&quot; of what&#39;s being discussed in class. We also discussed the word &quot;gratitude&quot; ( synonym: thankfulness) and what we&#39;re thankful for. Many Thanksgiving traditions include the social skill of going around the table/room and expressing what we&#39;re thankful for--and it&#39;s nice to have an answer &quot;rehearsed&quot; and ready to share! I hope your student is able to share something they are grateful for...be it friends, family, food, or SpongeBob!
