I am SOOO SOOO SOOO very thankful for all of the bloggers I have networked over the past year.  I am very excited to announce that I am participating in this years Thanksgiving Special Educators Blog Hop!  

Included on my page during this blog hop is a freebie (through sunday!) and 5 SPED Teacher Tips!

As we get ready for the Holiday Season I wanted to share with you a few Holiday Social Stories!  Social Stories are a great tool to be used within the classroom to teach students important skills. So often we expect our students to understand why our routine changes every time we celebrate a a holiday. Use these social story to teach your students the importance and significange behind each holiday.
