I am obsessed with my new Independent Binder Work System. I have been so busy creating and prepping I have not had a chance to blog about it yet!! EEEK, and it's already December. Better late than never? Lol! Today I am going to share with you my December set.
So many people over look Thanksgiving and skip straight to the December Holidays. NOT IN MY ROOM. Today we had a HUGE thanksgiving feast. It was such a fun day and the kids learned so much. I want to share with you all of the details of our day!1
Every teacher loves an Ikea hack. We are constantly re-inventing our classroom floorpan to make it best meet our students needs. For me, my biggest area of struggle was organizing my adapted books in a way that made them accessible yet still out of reach of my kiddo's hand when they were not supposed to be using them. I also HATE losing the velcro interactive pieces. This TEACHER HACK solves all of those problems!
I wanted to chat today a little bit about the hardest part of our jobs: behaviors. As a severely handicapped teacher I have seen, heard and witnessed everything. Nothing is a surprise anymore, as I expect the unexpected. No matter how consistent I schedule my routine and how systematic I am, nothing can be predicted. But this is what I LOVE about being a special education teacher. I love that the students keep me on my toes. I love that the students keep me constantly seeking to give more and do more. I love that these students need me just as much as I need them.
