Today I'm extra curious how other teachers incorporate aids/paras/volunteers in your classroom. I know different districts have different expectations, I'm just curious how your school does it.
For example, I have heard of aids supervising all recesses and lunch periods. A common task is sitting in a regular ed classroom keeping one or multiple students on task by tapping them/reminding them to face the front or stop talking. In regular and special ed settings I have seen aids work one-on-one with a student reinforcing topics. I have seen aids make tons of photocopies and cut out lots of laminating (frowned upon by administration).
Can't wait to hear your feedback on what your aids do:)
