Teaching independence is our end all goal as special education teachers. We want to build independent citizens. How do we do that? Well, we know we do many things every day all day to push our little kiddos towards independence! But one GREAT thing to add to your classroom routine is to establish classroom jobs. Classroom jobs help empower students to feel that they are contributing to the success of their own classroom!
Then, attach velcro the back of each job icon. Each week (or whenever your rotate jobs) you can easily pull all of the icons off the wall to allow access for students to pick the jobs. This is especially helpful if you have any students with physical limitations that can't access the bulletin board or reach the top jobs etc.!
