I love it. What a great visual to help people truly get what we all try to explain.

I'm absolutely thrilled to have this tool. The timing is wonderful! I just received an email from DS's student teacher about food she plans to use in the classroom. I discussed what she is planning to do, and I included the link to your chart!! Asked her to consider this for now and in the future, in her own classroom, for safe inclusion of all students.

GingerPye, I hope you post to let us know what the teacher's reaction to it was. I'm very curious!

Well, I haven't heard anything back. I hope she takes it the right way. I was extremely polite and tactful, I think. Just something for her to consider as she is student teaching, and when she gets her own classroom. Never hurts to plant the seed, yk?

Thanks again, Momcat, for this chart. It really is very useful.

That's great--and the Piagetian developmentally-appropriate responsibilities and accommodations table seems like a fantastic idea as well!!

GingerPye, did you end up using the Allergy Needs pyramid? What was the teacher's response to it?

I did send it to the student teacher but never had any comments from her. But nothing negative came back, either, lol!

As I said before --- I just wanted to plant the seed. Every little bit, yk . . . .

I wish I had remembered to put this chart in my PowerPoint for the school staff last week.  :banghead: Would have been so helpful.

I need to place it in there now so I'll have it for next year.

Momcat,

I love, love, LOVE your pyramid chart. It really explains all is a very efficient way.

When I clicked on the link, it wasn't there in PDF form. Can I find it somewhere and use it at school this year?

Thanks so much.
