Hi,
I found you on the TPT forum in the group for newbies. I am your newest follower. Please checkout my store and Facebook page when you get a chance! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Smart-Board-Lessons/459295564182287
It is taking me a long time to get products out there and I do not have a family to take care of any longer. But it is fun and I have learned a lot of things reading the forum. I learned about starting work in the PowerPoint first. I learned I had to make things cute...lol. One of the biggest things I learned is, if the answer is not on the forum, it is probably in a you tube video. Good Luck and I look forward to following you and wish you the best!
Thank you!
I love your rescue dog series! I have several adopted dogs and they are the best! So glad to see someone creative enough to get them a little more exposure.

If you have the time, you might want to look at my Pinterest boards (and join any that are of interest to you). I find Pinterest a great way to cross post animals in need. Best of luck and more importantly "have fun" with your tpt venture! Peg :8)

I have to thank you...one of your pins last night led me to an article about Dyslexia.

Would this be a great tool to use to assess incoming reg.ed. 3rd graders? If so, is there a key/rubric? Just wondering how would I explain the results to parents.

Special Education - Peggy Simpson
What a great question! Why don't you send me your e-mail and I'll send you a few of the pages so you can decide if it will work for your class, or not? Take care and thanks for the question. jasbv@aol.com Peg :8)

ps: Since it is for Special Education, you will get much more detailed information about each student who takes it - plus, it is designed to be reused (over and over again) until the student "gets" it. Each story has an answer key (that's under the "Student Expected Response" with an additional pink "prompt" if they need help). If you read the instructions page carefully, you will see the imbedded rubric of points assigned. There is always some flexibility in Special Education (so the assignment of points/rubric is suggested but you can modify). Each time, the student takes this, there is a data page filled out - this is where the special education part comes in, as the data page is time consuming but allows for massive data collection you can share with parents. For example, if the student was able to decode the 3.0 grade level story but not able to comprehend what they have read - this can be area noted for improvement (or vice versa, the student couldn't decode but was able to listen to the teacher - or, another student read it and use the visuals provided to recall all the noted parts of the story). Hope this helps and once I get your e-mail, I'd be happy to "walk you through" the process. Best of luck on your upcoming year! Peg :8)

Heather Rice - The Bag Lady
Hi, Peggy,
I am sorry. I don't know what happened. But I didn't see anything from you. I would have definitely written back to thank you for your stuff.
I will start using dimes.
I did buy him an IPAD. I am so glad that I did. There are so many wonderful apps out there.
I bought a ten frame from a clip art seller. But, it wasn't quite right. It used dots, and they were all the same color. So, I made a ten frame with donuts. I am using donuts of different colors. For example, ten frames are all pink donuts. Then I made a ten frame and glued it to a foam board. I hot glued magnets to it. Then I cut out white and chocolate frosted donuts, put them on foam, and then hot glued on magnets.
So, I am using that with him now.
I like it and it seems to work. I have also been using it with addition problems. Like a might have a ten frame and then another ten frame with six pink donuts on it. When I ask him how many more he needs to get 20, I have him use a different color donut so it is more obvious which ones he just added to get 20. Thanks for your help-Heather

Finally saw what I did wrong today (sent it back on the 21st to .com instead of .net). So sorry about that - just resent and I'll send you some more stuff as soon as I see that you got this one. Peg :8) Wow, that's weird - I'll send some stuff again - maybe it ended up in your spam folder? Isn't the iPad amazing? I'm so glad you got one for him - you should start seeing some amazing progress. There are also some really good ideas on Pinterest - there's one I saw the other day that used paper cups to teach place value - I'm going to try that one with some of my students because it's genius and basically free! Anyway, look for games with money that are interactive and have the whole family play them - letting your son use his iPad or coinulater to count them. Also, what I emailed you was that I'd be happy to help you write up a shopping adventure (social story type) for your son that you read together everyday. This is a very affordable way to learn coin counting for children w/autism. Look at my trash basketball game for an idea of what you are looking for in a game. Talk to you soon! Peg :8)

Heather Rice - The Bag Lady
Hi, Peggy! My e-mail is rice269@comcast.net. As far as what I want him to be able to do, I want him to be able to tell me if he has enough money to pay for an item that costs less than $20.00 and to be able to give me enough money to pay for the item. It is ok to go over what he needs, and I am fine with him just using quarters and not counting different combinations of change. Is it ok for him to rely on the coinulator to add money or should I keep working on using quarters and dollars? I worry that he will be stuck if he does not have the coinulator with him.
December 21, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
Special Education - Peggy Simpson
Don't worry about him using the coinulater - make sure he has it when u go to stores, restaurants, etc make sure u get its use added to the iep- u will likely want to switch up w a iPad in the future as the apps are awesome - u may find it easier to have him use dimes (rather than quarters) as that has proved more successful for my students). Thanks 4 your email and I'll send u some stuff to look over when I get home. Take care! Peg

Heather Rice - The Bag Lady  (TpT Seller) re: Coins Part 1 Special Needs Ed/ELD Rescue Dogs
Oh! This is Heather again ! Which of your math products would you recommend? Michael can sort and identify money. But not add combimnations. He can count off from the last number when adding two number together but requires a number line. (We also use touch math). He shows a limited understanding of place value.
December 21, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
Special Education - Peggy Simpson
In the "big" picture - what do you want him to be able to do? Understand, that many adults use calculators (and the coin one he is using is one that many of my students love - and that may be the only way that he is able to add coins for many years). Does he understand that u can "get" things from giving people money? Is there something that he really likes (forgive me but those "happy meals" tend to be high interest). If you give me your e-mail, I'll send you some stuff to look over. Peg :8)

Heather Rice - The Bag Lady
Hi, Peggy!
You gave me the advice about the popsicle sticks and you asked how things were going. Sometimes I feel like we are making progress. But, other times I feel like we are not. Have you ever read a book called, "teaching math to children with Down's syndrome and other special needs learners?" That's what I use with him. I am using popsicle sticks. I also bundle straws, use the unifix cubes, medium sized lego blocks, and clothespins. Sometimes I feel like he's getting it, and then it just goes. Also, can I ask you about money? Right now, he can't add combinations of money except with his special money calculator. (You push the coin and it adds it up for you). Right now, I am focusing on paying for stuff with dollars and quarters only. (Having more than you need is ok. Having less than you need is not). I feel like my priorities need to be:
place value, paying for things, counting my 5's, 10's, 25, and sequence of numbers in the number line. Michael can read at the beginning of third grade. But he is actually stuck at first grade in math. (At one point he actually regressed). Would you be willing to look over my math plans for Michael if I paid you? I am pretty confident in his reading and spelling curriculum because I've had training. But, I could use some advice in the math.rice269@comcast.net Heather Rice
December 21, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
Special Education - Peggy Simpson
U don't need to pay me darlin' I'm a big advocate 4 kids and will gladly do it for free. As for regressing - it happens (a lot). If u think of your brain as a kitchen (with lots of drawers). U store all your knowledge about quarters in one drawer, nickels in another, etc. and then when go to get them - u forgot which drawer u put them in, if u do find them it took so long u have forgotten "why" u were looking for them in the 1st place - but I've worked w kids from k-high school and often it will just "click" after"years" of standing on a plateau - never give up! My email is: jasbv@aol.com. Take care and remember to keep yourself happy because (as I tell my parents I coach) " u cannot give from an empty cup- and your child needs your cup to be full!

Do you find it helps get traffic to include the special ed/autism tags in your product title? I haven't, but have chosen special ed as a category. When I do a search for special ed items they don't show up.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am an Education Specialist with over 14 years experience in teaching a Special Day Class for students from K-12. I am the ELD lead at our school and have won many awards over the years. I design core curriculum lesson plans that are fun and interactive for all grade levels. I have trained many student teachers to go on and be successful Special Education Teachers. I am currently designing a group of lesson plans for Transition and Career Education. I film my students presenting various lesson plan activities. The students love being filmed while they're singing, dancing and just celebrating the learning experience!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I'm the Ellis Island of our school! Presenting lessons that are fun and easily grasped (from easy to hard) by my students (who range in cognitive abilities from 24 months to College level). A couple of my specialties are: theme teaching and behavior modification.
