If you are anything like me, you probably love and dread teaching in December. I always loved it because it was full of holidays and fun activities.

Differentiated Fall Math Worksheets for Elementary Special Education



As a former special education teacher, I always had a hard time finding worksheets that fit my students needs and that I could use with more than one student in my classroom. Often times, our students have very different goals, so purchasing a set of worksheets on JUST counting was great for one student, but didn't help me with the other seven.
