I have been teaching kids with multiple disabilities in South Central Kansas for 14 years. I also work with a respite care organization. I received my B.S.Ed. from Pittsburg State University (go Gorillas!) and my M.S.Ed. in severe and profound multiple disabilities including dual sensory impairments from the University of Kansas (go Jayhawks!).
Today we celebrated the Royal Wedding Day in style. Earlier in the week we read all about the wedding using the Royal Wedding edition of News-2-You. We started by catching up on all the news and watching videos of the celebration on the official royal wedding website. Then we found pictures of the wedding cake online and decorated our own wedding cupcakes to eat as dessert after lunch. Lunch was a variety of simple to make and eat appetizer-type snacks contributed by the staff as well as a baked potato bar. In the afternoon we had fun making bride puppets using wooden spoons and extra art supplies and then creating toilet paper veils for everyone to wear (yes, even the boys got into this :-) ). Fun times!
