Hello - What Would You Do?

Well hello there! It's been a while since I've posted I know. January was a very hectic month for me. A CASA case I accepted five and a half years ago was coming to an end and there was so many things to do to prepare her for emancipation. I had made a decision to take a break from CASA before taking on another case but literally 2 days later their was a sibling group that really needed an advocate and I felt it was where I needed to be. I also offered to take on a family findings case to try to find family for a child who knows none. So for the last 3 weeks I've been mining files every day after work, meeting my new kids, and acquainting myself with their social worker, attorney etc. It really is hard for me to say no when a child is involved.

I have so many pictures on my phone of thing I want to share with you and am going to try to make an effort to do that regularly now that things have died down.
So, first thing I'm sharing is some "what would you do" cards on independent living. We started these last week in my classroom and so far have done 10 of the cards. We spend about 5 minutes discussing each card. The kids seems to really enjoy brainstorming and coming up with solutions. There are 30 cards in total. I laminated mine so they would hopefully last a few years. I also put together a Kahoot quiz if your interesting that corresponds to the the cards. 

The quiz can be found HERE.

The cards are available in my store on TPT for free if you're interesting in doing them with your class. Just click HERE

You can read more about how we are using them there. 

Until next time,


  1. I'm so glad you're back! I wondered if you had given up blogging. But it sounds as if you've been busy with pretty important stuff. I love reading your blog because your class is as close to mine as I have found. I teach a high school Life Skills class. I get to feeling a little isolated now and then, and it's nice to know there are others out there doing the same (or almost the same) as I am. I've gotten some great ideas from your blog. Love the snowman pictures!

  2. Thanks Suzanne! I felt in the beginning of my blog days that I had SOOOOO much to say. I've gotten out most of what I wanted to share so there's not that much now that I haven't already written about. I will continue to write about the new things though. Thanks for commenting!
