About Me

My photo
I am a special educator who has recently relocated to Manila. One of my goals for this year is learn more about early childhood education and special education in the Philippines. I have been visiting schools and therapy centers (among others) and providing info here about them. I do not aim to endorse these different centers/schools, but my intention is to provide information in case some people are interested in learning more about them.

"I Can Wait!" book

I Can Wait!
Bambi Rodriguez
I like doing a lot of things at school.  I like to play, run, eat with my friends, or talk during meeting time.


But sometimes I have to wait. Waiting means having to do something else or doing ‘nothing’ before doing what you really want to do.
First, I have to        Then, I can go and play
sign-in and work.      (although I actually     like working a lot of             times)

           to talk already).

Sometimes it gets a little hard to wait to do the things I want to do.

When this happens, I can tell my teacher I am having a hard time.  
I can count from 1 to 10.
I can also just ask an adult to sit with me or hold my hand and help me. 
I am learning to wait more and more each day.
The End!
