Sleeping like a Baby / Toddler Bed Conversion
This is Alex's bed. As you can see, Alex is a bit of a restless sleeper. We once left a camcorder with night vision in his room all night long and he made several circuits around his crib while sleeping. His crib has been converted into a toddler bed. When we bought the crib we also bought the conversion kit it. That didn't work out, so I made my own "conversion kit" which is what you see in the photo. Long version of the story: We bought the conversion kit with the crib, because we had no idea whether it'd still be available by the time Alex was old enough to use it. We didn't even open the box for the conversion kit until a couple of months ago. I was expecting there to be some sort of railing to prevent him from rolling out of the bed accidentally, but it turns out the kit was just a narrow board to hold the mattress in place, 4 screws to hold the board in place, and a set of instructions. We figured Alex would fall out of the bed without a railing, so we put a separate mattress (from a spare bed) on the floor next to his newly converted toddler bed. Sure enough, he fell out of the bed at least once each night. I ended up building my own conversion kit, which is what you can see in the photo here. It consists of 2 "fences" that are bolted onto the crib using the holes/nuts already built into the crib frame. (I didn't want to drill any new holes into the crib.) Each fence started out as a solid maple 2x2 and a sheet of 1/2" birch plywood. The 2x2s were shortened (to about 20"), narrowed (to something more like 1.5"x1.5") and holes were drilled to match up with the holes on the vertical posts originally meant for the crib railing. A sort of slot was also cut along the length of one corner for the plywood to fit into. The plywood sheets were cut down to size and then shaped with a jigsaw and sander. The shape of each sheet is roughly a 20" square but with one corner (the inner top corner) rounded, and another corner (inner bottom) has a short "tail" that sticks out. This tail is to overlap a pre-existing screw hole on the base of the crib frame while still leaving the gap between the fences wide enough. Each piece of plywood was then attached to the corresponding piece of maple with wood screws and urethane glue. Two tee nuts were attached to the bottom edge of each fence. The two fences were then sanded to eliminate any exposed sharp corners and were painted the same color as the crib. (I went to a local paint store with the old conversion kit and asked them to match the color and finish.) Bolts with the same diameter and thread as the captive nuts built into the crib posts were used to attach the fences to the bedposts, and the bolts that came with the (too late to return) toddler conversion kit held the bottom edges onto the base of the crib, now bed, frame. The gap between the two fences is about 16". This opening is wide enough for an adult to sit on the edge of the bed (good for reading bedtime stories) yet narrow enough that Alex is unlikely to fall through it by accident. It's also in the center of the bed rather than at a corner, so when he's "sleep crawling" he's likely to just pass by the hole entirely. Finally, having two short fences attached at each corner is more sturdy than a single long fence attached at one corner. Building it took a lot longer than it probably should have. I built it over the course of a week, and probably spent at least 5 hours a day on it. One thing that wasted a lot of time was the holes on the vertical posts didn't quite line up with the holes on the crib. I measured the locations very precisely, but I just used a hand drill (I don't have a drill press) and so the holes weren't perfectly perpendicular to the surface. Using a drill press or drilling from the opposite side (ie: the side that would touch the crib, rather than the exposed side) or both would have probably saved me several hours of frustration. I also botched the paint job on one of the pieces by trying to use steel wool to sand the already painted wood. This left steel residue on the paint which made the paint grey, and also prevented the next coat from sticking to it properly. I ended up having to sand through both of these layers of paint and repaint. One other thing I would do differently if I were to do this again is to trace the curve from the back end of the crib (not visible in photo) onto the top of the plywood (upside-down), and then used that curve to define the top edge of the fences. This would make the fences match the style of the crib more closely. The current design of the fences is very minimalist (because I designed it only thinking of function, not form) while the crib itself is much more traditional in appearance with its sleigh-bed-like curves. That said, I don't think it looks too bad. It's the sans-serif heading to the serif body text of the crib.Sawyer is 6 months OLD!!!!!!!
I eat all number 1 baby foods and i have just tried juice. I have also slept through the whole night (just three times though, the weekend after i turned 6 months). I just began trying number 2 foods and I finally rolled over 3 days after I turned 6 months. I love sitting up using a tripod hold. I like going to my daycare but I still have trouble napping for long periods of time. I sleep so well in the crib in my parents room, too. any time I am grumpy, I just have to look at my brother. Watching him play anything relaxes me. I like to look at my sister, too. She is so pretty!!!!! I love my jumperoo and I try jumping even when i am just sitting in someone's lap. I am beginning to cry at daycare when I see my momma come to get me. She just cannot grab me fast enough. I finally take a bottle of formula when I have to at daycare, but I just am not a big fan. Give me my momma's milk in a bottle though and I go to town! I look for Daddy when you ask me where Dada or Daddy is, but he is the only one. My doctor keeps commenting on how happy I am. Yes it is unusual. I am so cute. I love to visit my momma on Mondays when my gramma takes me to her work for nursing time at her school. I am loving life. One more month until my momma is off of work for the summer! Whoohoo! I am getting ready to eat yogurt and finger food this month. I will update you soon. See you next month.
While much has been written about alternative approaches to curriculum and assessment, few educational systems have implemented districtwide reporting systems that reflect these developments. Rolling the Elephant Over documents the experiences of one school district that attempted to do just that, offering some valuable lessons from two key participants.Similar posts:
As the Tucson Unified School District made the shift from fact based curricula and norm-referenced testing toward an emphasis on higher-order thinking skills and performance-based assessment, it became evident that their traditional report card was no longer viable. Clarridge and Whitaker's challenge was to coordinate the design and implementation of a new elementary progress report that would provide not only a more consistent and equitable measure of student progress across an extremely diverse district, but also promote better communication among parents, students, and teachers.
Rolling the Elephant Over takes the reader through the entire process, from the development and field testing of the prototype to its widespread implementation--and all of the successes and pitfalls along the way. The authors explain their staff development and support initiatives and suggest strategies for managing the often conflicting demands of parents, teachers, and administrators. Included are samples of the rubrics, standards, reporting formats, and survey tools they developed.
The experiences documented here provide a road map for any educator or administrator interested in changing what was once considered the most visible and valued form of communication in the educational system--the report card.
