This year has been my first venture in to color coding my students' schedules and using check-ins for centers. I'm liking it. Although many of my students are readers, it really helps them navigate where they need to be. I also find it's helping my paras learn the schedule and assist my students when they need a hand. Definitly a win-win! #autismteacher #autismclassroom #specialedteacher #specialeducation #autonomyforthewin
I never realized what a big deal it was to be kind to others until a couple of years ago. I actually really didn't like being too kind because i thought it made me vulnerable and i would feel bad if the person didnt reciprocate. But you know what? It doesn't take a whole lot of effort to be kind, but it can make a huge difference to the recipient, even if you dont get back anything in return. Image from @pathway2success1

I think as special ed teachers, we're always trying to find the best ways to educate our kids. But what are you doing with that knowledge?
I havent bought much this year (I have collected enough stuff in my 9 years teaching) but I did pick up these sand timers in the Target Dollar Spot. I figured they could be good for my students who have challenges completing task in a timely manner.
Honestly, I never really used adapted books before. However, I have seen why they can be so helpful in the classroom, introducing new topics, generalizing, work tasks, the list goes on!
