Errorless Learning in the Special Education Classroom

I'm here today to talk to you about errorless learning - what it is - & why I think it's important!

What is errorless learning? It is exactly what it sounds like! Errorless learning is when you give a student a task where they CAN NOT get an answer wrong. Each answer is the same - such as the student would match all of the circles (& there won't be any other shapes!). All of the responses need to be the same for it to be truly be errorless.

Work Task Boxes for the Self Contained Classroom

Hopefully this blog post is finding you on summer break - or near the end of your year!

I have been working on some new work tasks for my ABA clients and wanted to share them with you all. All of the materials were either recycled from my home or purchased at Dollar Tree & a local craft store! All of them are SUPER cheap to put together - and I am loving them!

Teaching Your Students How to Count Money in Special Education

Happy Sunday, friends! End of the year home stretch is HERE - you're almost to the finish line!

Do you use the touch money method in your classroom? When I worked on money counting skills with my students, I always used the touch money method to introduce the skill. Counting groups of coins is a tough skill and this method always made the process a lot less confusing for my students.

I just did a complete overhaul of my best-selling Touch Money Worksheets and I wanted to give you a look inside!

Included in the resource you'll find money worksheets with touchpoints & without. As your students master using the touchpoints, you can then use the worksheets without them. There is a cut/paste option included for non-writers (or just another version!) and a write in the answer option.

There are a variety of other money related worksheets AND a fun money bingo game to play with your students! We used to play bingo ALL. THE. TIME. in my classroom. Such a fun & easy way to practice a skill - the kids loved it!

I have a variety of touch money resources that are helpful to reinforce learning in various ways such as file folders, clip cards, scoot, and adapted books. You can actually grab all 6 products in the Touch Money Bundle! Check it out if your classroom is in need of a variety of resources! Questions about using touch money?! Leave them in the comments!

Resigning From My Teaching Job

This blog post has been months in the making. When I decided to resign from my special education teaching position last summer, I knew that I would get a lot of questions. Why did I do it, what am I doing now, what does the pay look like, etc. If you follow me over on Instagram and have watched my stories over the last few years, you know that I try my best to be as open about everything that I can. So here we are! Whether you're just curious, or are looking to make a change as well, hopefully I can answer some of those questions!

Using the Dollar Up Method in Special Education

Happy Sunday, friends!

Do you use the dollar up method in your classroom? I just recently created some dollar up resources that are a great way to work on paying for items by rounding up to the next dollar!

Cheap & Easy Fall Sensory Bin

Fall is in FULL swing over here in the midwest and I really wanted to create a simple sensory bin to take along with me to my in home therapy sessions in the next few weeks.  I headed over to my local Dollar Tree and grabbed a few cheap sensory bin "ingredients".

You're Teaching Self-Contained! Now What?! (Part One)

I get this message all the time: "It's going to be my first year in a self contained classroom. What do I need to start off the year?!"

Let me just start by saying, this is a BIG question with really no right answer. However, after teaching in self contained for the last 8 years, I will try to answer it to the best of my ability! Some of this will be geared more towards elementary, but some of it can be used across the board! This will be part one of two blog posts, the second being more about how to start off your year with kids, paraprofessionals, and your classroom as a whole!

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!
