Unique Learning Systems....

So this year my class was selected to participate in an ipad pilot program. We received 5 new ipads for our classroom .....yay!

As part of the pilot program we are using a standards based curriculum ( yes, I said the word curriculum) designed specifically for children with special needs. This weekend I attended my first official training and HOLY COW! I am so excited! When I made the transition from teaching first grade general education to teaching in a self contained classroom the first thing I asked my principal was what curriculum I follow.....he basically said, "whatever you want". Uh.....excuse me? This did not sit well and since then I have been searching and making things and combing bits of pieces of this and that and adding in some functional curriculum and hoping that I was doing the right thing. Well, so far I am super impressed with Unique Learning Systems. It has meaning and it's functional and academic and incredibly differentiated and it does so much to include EVERYONE regardless of the disability. I am still in the preliminary stages of  implementation but so far it's amazing and I will have more more to post in the coming months......stay tuned! For those of you that are already using ULS please feel free to comment and provide suggestions. It's a lot to take in at first!

Oh....and here are some photos of my kids using the lessons. You can see in the photos the consistent use of photos and differentiation in material. Thank you Unique!

Lessons differentiated by use of pictures! Love it!


  1. I thnk you are going to love Unique! I have a lot of classrooms and schools that have started using it and love it because the materials are all made AND matched to the standard. I have done a couple of posts about it including ways to organize the materials on my blog and The Busy Bee whose link I can't remember offhand but I included it in a blogpost on resources for unique also has a video on how she organizes. I will be excited to hear more about what you think of it.

    1. Christine--I think you are right! So far I love it. It's a little overwhelming because I want to use all of it but obviously there is not enough time. I am already seeing results with my kids. I particularly like the repetition and spiraling of lessons. I also LOVE that there are three different levels which is exactly what I need. So glad to hear from another Unique user.

      I am going to review your blog on how to organize because I am still in the preliminary stage but our district is pretty sure we purchase next year. I hope so!


  2. Can you use the Ipad for the interactives on unique? I have only been able to make them work on my regular lap top but if I could use the touch screen It would be so much better for my students. Am I missing something.
