Thanksgiving Feast Celebrations!

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!

How to Make an Adapted Book Wall

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!

My Philosophy on Challenging Behaviors


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.
