Choosing a top ten of Children's books is an impossible task, I've two children who both have their favourites, plus memories of my own cherished books from my childhood might not be as relevant for everyone else!
I've decided to put coloured boxes on top of the tasks. Each coloured box indicates a specific category (i.e. housework, kids, exercise, blogging etc) and it also indicates the time I've allocated for each category on my time line. That way, I see where I am during the day and choose from that set of tasks what to do.
We all know those tired clichés. It’s time to kill them. Take one of them and turn them on their heads or at least these will hopefully keep the errors out of your writing. If you think of any other...
Teaching Math to People with Down Syndrome. I NEED this book! Being a special ed comprehensive major, a lot of the items I've seen on Pinterest are super awesome, but not really applicable to the kids I'll be teaching. This book, however, focuses on how to teach math to kids with Down's, and I love that so much.
Have your kids join the "Bucket Filling Club" Lots of activities to reinforce the book as well as "challenge cards" to get kids thinking about others. (2nd half of this pack is redone to just say "Friendship" for those non-bucket filling classrooms!!!)
Would you like your students to have extra addition and subtraction practice for word problems? I love how task cards are just the right thing for independent practice in centers, small groups or playing scoot. I've made these cards to use with AND without QR Codes! Do your kids love QR? Mine do! There are 40 cards to this lesson (plus 40 cards with the QR code), an answer key, and recording sheet. $
