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!

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.
