Tackle Transition Times Like a Pro!

Transition times in the Special Education classroom can be difficult. Check out these 2 easy tips to tackle transition times like a pro in your classroom!
Teaching our students to transition in the Special Education classroom is a necessary skill. Students need to transition to school, between activities, around campus, and from school each and every day. Teaching these skills can be really tricky in the high intensity classroom, but I have two tips to help your students tackle transition times like pros!

Structuring Classroom Supplies for your Students

Do you know this student? The one who will wander around looking for the perfect classroom supplies before they can even START on a task. I've known that student a few times. And after it took us an entire morning to find the "just right" pencil in our classroom, it was clear to me that this Goldilocks routine was not going to work in my classroom and I needed to come up with an intervention for this student immediately!

Making the Most of Your Activity Matrix

I talked about the activity matrix I use in my classroom a while ago. An activity matrix really is a fabulous tool for working in a collaborative classroom where you may or may not have time to touch base with paraprofessionals and service providers regularly (I know I have like zero time to do any collaboration face to face in my classroom). If you are unfamiliar with an activity matrix, you should check out this awesome video I stumbled across.

Winter Task Boxes


Do you love using Task Boxes in your classroom? I know I do and these Task Boxes we are working with in January are seriously everything! My students are loving them and I'm loving them, too. Come take a peek at what we're up to in our classroom this month!

I'm over here sharing more tips and tricks for getting organized in the new year here on the blog. Over the past couple weeks I have shared how to organize your classroom for Morning Meeting and Center Times. Today I'm thrilled to share with you how I organize myself, materials, and more for my 1:1 Work Time in my classroom. Let me show you how I keep myself sane during this time in my classroom.


Get Organized in the New Year: Centers

Our students need a lot of supports to help them access their curriculum and to be able to participate in activities but this just means MORE STUFF in our classroom. If you don't have a good system in place for organizing and storing all this "stuff" you're quickly going to be drowning in data sheets, sensory fidgets, behavioral icons, classroom schedules, and so much more.
