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!

Grab & Go Monthly Math & ELA Worksheets



You guys know I'm ALL about file folder activities and other adapted activities, but sometimes I just need something quick & easy to grab and work on with my little friends. Something that doesn't use a whole color cartridge and that doesn't take a few hours of cutting, gluing, and laminating to get prepared.

This is exactly why I decided to create some monthly themed math & language arts worksheets that I can use with all of my students!


Data, Data, & More Data!



Happy August! Back to school is right around the corner, so I wanted to stop by the blog really quick and give you guys an inside look at how I take data!

Data...who likes to actually take data?! (Actually I don't know if it's the taking of data, more so just making the data sheets!)


Morning Circle Communication Binder



Do you have students who are non verbal or need help communicating information during morning circle? I had some students this year who needed some extra support to be able to fully participate in our circle time. Out of this came: our morning circle time binder!
