Great activity to use for independent or 1:1 work to practice following directions and reading comprehension! I printed this activity on cardstock, cut apart the boxes, and then laminated them (I love to make my classroom materials extra sturdy!).

I laminate and cut apart these cards, and then label envelopes with a 3, 4, and 5, and place it all in a shoebox size bin. This then becomes an independent activity for students to practice counting pictures and correlating them to numerals.

Sending a ‘professional’ email is such an important skill! I don’t know about you, but this is something my students struggle with- big time. They send emails with only one or two words, no punctuation, nothing in the subject line… the list goes on.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching Special Education for seven years so far, and i LOVE my job! In my time teaching, I have spent the majority of my time working with students with low incidence disabilities, though I have also worked with students with high incidence disabilities as well. I have taught high school special education classes focused on functional academics, vocational and independent living skills. I have also worked at a therapeutic day school as the director of curriculum, where I worked to support teachers with students ages 5-21. I am currently teaching a group of transition aged students in a community based setting, where our major focus is job skills and setting them up for success in the future, as they are in their last year of Special Education services. Through the years, I have gained experience working with a wide range of ability levels, and have loved the constant challenge to create and adapt materials to meet the needs of my students!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in using a variety of styles and strategies to get learners engaged! However, my all time favorite way to do that is anything hands-on, or involving real life experience.
