Special Exposure Wednesday: The Great Cookie Caper

We baked oatmeal chocolate-chip cookies over winter break. In order to get both Ben and Logan involved, I moved the "staging" area lower to the ground, moving a kid's table to the kitchen. For most every ingredient, I gave Ben a small portion to play with in a bowl allowing him to feel the oats, flour, sugar and tastung them if he wanted. The chocolate chips were his favorite. Ben really enjoyed the mixer - I bet the sound and vibration were interesting to him. Logan helped Ben with the brown sugar, Logan was an excellent helper. He scooped the batter onto the trays, getting them ready for baking. I must give credit to Logan for the photos with me in them. He did a great job!

Even More Lovely Blog Awards

In the fall, I received the One Lovely Blog Award from Bendigo at Bendigo's Rage . As stated in the rules, I must give the award to 15 other blogs. I have done it in increments - these are the next 5. They are all chosen for different reasons - one because it plays ABBA music while reading the blog, and a couple because of the excellent special education law they provide. Have fun reading: 1. Special Education Law Blog 2. Wrightslaw Blog 3. Special Needs Reads 4. The Blog of the Courtier The rules, upon receiving this award, state that you must: 1. Accept the award; 2. Post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link; 3. Pass the award on to 15 other blogs that you've newly discovered; and 4. Contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.
