How Do You Assess Your Students??

Tuesday, April 15, 2014
A few years ago I got really tired of running around the room whenever I needed to assess my students. I decided to put all of the manipuatives that I might need in one place. For now, it's in this very basic box. I can take it around the room to test each student. I also use a class binder that has data recording sheets and assessment tracking sheets. I bring the binder with me as well for documentation and recording. Not every student will need everything that's in the box but I tried to make it as complete as possible for all students.

ABC order the "FUNctional" way!

Wednesday, January 29, 2014
I am always striving to teach my students a combination of academics with functional skills. Since my kiddos struggle with alphabetical order, I bought these filing sets from Office Depot to use during our vocational AND reading time. They are so fun, the kids LOVE them and they really work! Over time, the kids see and remember the order of the letters and since the file goes front to back it really reinforces the alphabetical order concept! Take a peek! 


Start with any type of alphabetical filing system. This is what I used but really there are many different kinds.
