2017 Chinese New Year Poster - Year of the Rooster #2

I had difficulty printing the poster too, but saved it to my desktop and printed from there, it worked perfectly, so maybe worth a try Sharon

2016 - Year of the Monkey Personality Traits

Hi, Just wondering if we can have some updated information regarding 2017 the Year of the Rooster please and maybe a poster to go with it.
Many thanks for your fantastic resources, much appreciated.

Hi Heather, I have found any of the Chicken Soup for the Soul books have worked well. There are many of them with different themes so you can often relate it back to an activity or theme you might be working on. They are great stories that can stimulate lots of conversation and at times emotions too! (In a good way)

Inspirational Short Story - The Scottish Farmer

Chicken Soup for the Soul, and varying titles of this are great short stories that are inspirational and will promote conversation

Hi Avery, We use a daily tick sheet in our facility. We use a code of A for active, P for passive and O for offered (which is when you've offered an activity and they said no) so you could really do anything that covers their needs. We actually had this code for some time but just used to tick then the Auditos noted it so of course now we have to and do use code!
