Okay, so I caught myself saying "be quiet" or "too loud" about a million times yesterday.  I kid you not, I probably said it over 100 times.  I went home last night and literally laid in bed thinking… how am I going to make this work for the next two years?  For some reason, I never considered making an individualized visual for him.  I am guilty of my biggest pet peeve.  GUILTY.  He is new to my class this year and brilliant.  He is years above my students cognitively and I wrongfully assumed that because he was so smart he wouldn't need behavioral supports.  WRONG! Any who  I'm happy to report that with just one day of using the support, the sound levels went down DRASTICALLY!

September Apples!

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

With peanut butter you get jelly, with green eggs you get ham, and with September you get APPLES!  Yes, apples upon apples.  I wanted to share with you two of the crafts we have done so far this year.  While they are fun arts and crafts, they still serve an academic purpose!

Learning CRITICAL personal information!

Friday, September 12, 2014

Okay, so let's face it, it's only natural that we learn our name, age, birthday, phone number and address.  It's only expected and ASSUMED that all kids learn this information naturally.  If only it were this easy for our kiddo's!  These are facts we must teach our kids to know, utilize and put to use.  It is something that is so crucial for kids for when they age and go into the community.  I decided to create interactive "about me" books that can be used to practice such skills.  

The Very Hungry Caterpillar!

Thursday, September 11, 2014

The last two weeks have been so much fun! The first week of school is always more fun then work!  We did a lot of fun activities with The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  We read it every day in different situations so that my students could master the comprehension!  I love these comprehension questions with visual multiple choice answers because they allow my students to fully participate in the comprehension activities!  You can buy them in my book bundle!
