Using {Interactive} Books in the Classroom & Where to Find Them
Let me tell you the awesome thing about have pre-k, kindergarten, and first grade in the same classroom. You can do literally zero whole group academic instruction. Did I just say that out loud? You picked up on that sarcasm right? Or at least I can't with ...

Happy New Year & 2017 Goals!
I blogged 15 times in 2016. FIFTEEN. That's pitiful. So now it is time to make some goals for 2017 and try somehow to hold myself accountable for them. My blog was a little out of sorts there for a while. I finally took the

Lunch Room Supports
Sometimes I wonder if the idea of taking a group of students on the spectrum into a large sensory overloaded room also known as the cafeteria is some sort of joke being played on us. I don't think an autism friendly cafeteria exists out there. The closest y...

Teaching Autism K/1
SO. I wrote a while back about how I had NO IDEA what I would be teaching in the fall. Well, thankfully an amazing position opened up and I am now teaching a K/1 Autism classroom! So far I am loving it. It has it's challenges, like all classrooms do, but we...

The {Ultimate} ABC Cookie Tray Pack!
I am super excited to share this with you. Not only because I love it, but because I'm excited I finished it. I always struggle with alphabet sets. By the time I get to letter P I'm usually pretty burnt out and can't figure out how to keep going. The last t...

living in Delaware for 10 y...

August 12, 2013 I started this blog post. I'm not sure what happened and why I didn't share it. I've updated the product, added a little bit more and am finally hitting publish on this. I thought it would be fun to leave it as I had it a little over 3 years...

"How We Center"--with some help from Oriental Trading
Coming to a final routine/procedure for our centers were going to run in my classroom was not an easy task for me. Having taught pre-school for 6 years I was used to planning play centers, but I never required them to rotate through the centers and stay for...
