Ms. Rabste.. huh?

You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance. ~Franklin P. Jones

Book Description
Publication Date: November 30, 2005


Different Like Me introduces children aged 8-12 years to famous, inspirational figures from the world of science, art, maths, literature, philosophy and comedy. Eight-year-old Quinn, a young boy with Asperger’s Syndrome, tells young readers about the achievements and characteristics of his autism heroes, from Albert Einstein, Dian Fossey and Wassily Kandinsky to Lewis Carroll, Benjamin Banneker and Julia Bowman Robinson, among others. All excel in different fields, but are united by the fact that they often found it difficult to fit in - just like Quinn. Fully illustrated in colour and written in child-friendly language, this book will be a wonderful resource for children, particularly children with autism, their parents, teachers, carers and siblings.

Teacher’s Prayer

As I wake to start each day,

I pray for students to come my way,

students who always want to know more,

and smile when entering the classroom door.

I long for children who want to learn,

who raise their hand and wait their turn,

who pay attention and know what to ask,

who surprise themselves as they meet each task.

A thirst for knowledge is what they desire

as they search for things that inspire.

From English to science and especially math,

they take lessons with them onto life’s path.

I pray that htis class will be the one

who actually thinks that learning is fun.

I’ll do my best to prepare them each day

for all that life will bring their way.

We watched a brainpop video today about recycling and talked about Earth Day coming up. Tomorrow students will fill up the earth with ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle- can’t wait!
