Teaching Kindness in the Classroom

Did you know that each February there is a week dedicated to kindness? Well, now you do! This year Random Acts of Kindness week is February 11-17, but it is NEVER too late to teach your students about being kind!

Preparing for a New Student Mid-Year

It's the inevitable e-mail. You're halfway through the school year and you get an e-mail from you're admin titled "new student". I know what you're thinking, another student?! By this time of the year most of us are exhausted and starting to get a little burned out (if you aren't, tell me all your secrets). BUT, because we are amazing teachers (pats self on back), we start to prepare to welcome them with open arms.

What We're Doing In January

Hope you all had a wonderful, restful winter break! I'm winding down on my winter break and gearing up for 2018 in the classroom. I've been planning for the month of January and wanted to share what we will be doing all month long!

How I Organize my Self Contained Classroom

One of the most common questions almost every teacher wonders about one another is "How do they organize their classroom?!" (Or is this just me?!) I thought I'd show you all a few of the ways I organize materials in my (very tiny) classroom!

Unique Learning: What I'm Using & What I'm Not

Hey y'all! Earlier last week I posted over on my Instagram about using Unique Learning in my classroom, trying to figure out a doable schedule, and choosing which activities are worth my time and which are just not a great fit. If you have ULS, you know that it is VERY overwhelming with an insane amount of materials and information. Let me just preface this with: I am NO expert on ULS. I have no idea what I'm doing half the time (honestly) but I've been trying to find a good groove this year and here is what I've got so far!

Favorite FREE Websites for Special Educators

It's no secret that teachers aren't in it for the money. OR that teachers spend a LOT of their own money on things for the classroom (can we say Target and TpT?!?). Because of this, I wanted to share some awesome FREE websites/resources that you can use with your students! Don't be shy - feel free to add your favorite free websites in the comments for others to use!!!

Introducing: Intermediate File Folders for Special Education!

I wanted to stop in today to give you guys a peek inside my newest growing bundle! I am SO excited about these brand new file folders, I can barely contain myself!!

PCI Reading: Part 2!

Do you use PCI Reading in your classroom? We do & I LOVE it! (Check out my original post about PCI Reading HERE!)

If you don't know what PCI Reading is, it's a reading curriculum designed specifically to teach students with disabilities how to read. We use level 1 in my classroom. In level 1, there is a total of 140 sight words (dolch words, fry words, and "real world" words) that students learn over a period of time through a lot of repetition and practice. It has been a game changer in my self contained classroom!
