I work with students with major education needs. This is very helpful in keeping them focused and engaged.
Fully loaded with everything you could possibly need or want. My students especially love the sensory items and the cooking! Very engaging!

    Gabrielle Dixon from Teaching Special Thinkers and I are thrilled to bring you the Made for Me Literacy Year-Long Bundle!

    Having both taught in self-contained special education classrooms, Gabrielle (Teaching Special Thinkers) and Michaela (Especially Education) have experienced the difficulties and frustrations of finding appropriate resources to meet the needs of their students.

    Book List: To help immerse students in various forms of literature, our units contain a variety of texts. Some books will need to be purchased, while other books we write ourselves. Many teachers check out the books from their library, or opt for YouTube read-alouds. You can check out our book list here.

    The mission behind Made For Me Literacy is to provide teachers with engaging, comprehensive reading units that were designed with special learners in mind. These monthly-themed units span various subject areas, including basic reading, writing, math, science, and fine motor skills.

    Differentiation is often a time consuming and tedious process. But not anymore! Many activities included in the Made For Me Literacy curriculum provide two or three levels of difficulty. Meeting the needs of all your students is easy with the differentiation already done for you.
