We are 2 friends and colleagues with over 30 years experience in education. We have taught students with a wide range of special needs from Kindergarten to 8th grade. We started Polka Dot Poodle to address the void in consistent and adaptable educational materials for special needs kids .All of our materials are great for general ed. kids as well. If there is something you need….let us know. We welcome your comments and suggestions.
Teach through Music and Literature.... Scaffold and Differentiate.... Use Materials that are Attractive, Motivating and Interactive... Be Organized... Give Every Child a Voice... Celebrate Success Every Day!
