I have teamed up with some fellow Indiana Bloggers for a Back to School Blog Hop. Make sure you follow it all the way through for your chance to win gift card! Who doesn't LOVE a gift card?
If you started at the beginning of the hop you just came from Teaching Through Turbulence. I have to give Heather major props because she is a Special Education teacher who works with children with Emotional Disabilities. That can be a tough group of kiddos. You have to have a good heart and a lot of patience (patience is NOT one of my strong suits, but I am working on it). She has a lot of great ideas that can be incorporated with your mainstreamed kiddos. Check her out!
So the beginning of the year is a time where you want everything to be perfect! At least that is how I view it. I would say the most important things to have in place are organization, routine, and behavior plans.
I have created some really cute Owl Themed Agenda Signs to help you with the routine aspect. Students thrive off of a routine. They love to see what they have done and what is left to do. So grab up these freebies and you will be well on your way to a great year.
Now I would like to share my absolute FAVORITE creation. I have gone a little lemonade ga-ga this summer. I created a comprehensive pack of Classroom Management Tools. You can check out the post about it HERE. It is a mix of individual and whole class behavior plans. I try to use a positive approach and I think you will agree that I hit the nail on the head with this one.
I really want to thank you for stopping by. Stay tuned for my blog makeover reveal coming soon! I can't wait to see the finished product. I hope you have a wonderful year!
Next stop on the hop is Pencils, Books, & Dirty Looks!
