Just a little fun to end your weekend :)






I found this website through Pinterest and I am thrilled. Although I personally love storytime with real books, some of my students struggle to stay focused. 

Thankfully, I have found many ways to supplement this through the use of my Promethean board. This website is an addition my tricks!


I found lots of popular titles, along with TONS of informational text, which is great to meet common core standards.

Autism Classroom Workbox System {TONS of pictures!}

Sunday, January 19, 2014 / 4 comments
Independent workboxes are kind of the meat of my AU classroom. During workbox time, I can observe whether my students have truly mastered skills like I think they have and it gives my students the opportunity to gain some independence with following a system/to-do list without any teacher guidance or prompting.

After posting a picture of my workbox station on Instagram, I had a lot of people ask for how I set these up. Now that I have finally gotten around to it, I hope it can help some of you!

I'm in the process of revamping some of my work tasks and centers for my students.

A lot of them love have goals related to blending, letter sounds, vowels, etc., so I wanted to make some new tasks they could do to practice skills we go over during teacher time/literacy. Also, some of my students are non-writers, but that doesn't necessarily mean they can't read, so these types of tasks are perfect for giving them some fine motor practice and letter sound/rhyming practice! :)

Here's a look:

Starfall Download Center {Literacy Freebies!}

Thursday, January 2, 2014 / Leave a Comment
So we all know and love Starfall! I swear it has helped turn some of my non-readers into readers!

I just recently discovered the Download Center and hooooly moooooly.

My students with Autism respond SO WELL to everything on Starfall and even my lower students can maneuver around the site on the Promethean board or the computer. 

I can't wait to use these! They are perfect and simple enough that they won't overwhelm.

Here are a few shots:


 They have alphabet sheets (3 activity sheets per letter)




loads of sheets broken down into skill areas (PERFECT for writing center)


take-home readers

and so much more! 

happy printing :)

Wednesday, January 1, 2014 / 8 comments
Just posted my first product geared towards students with Autism!

I am constantly searching for activities my non-writers and students that are still learning basic skills, such as matching, tracing, counting, etc. 

I have been creating monthly themed packets for my students to complete during morning work time and independent work time (binder work).

Here is the first one I've actually made *TPT* ready. I will post other months soon! :)







I'll be giving one of these away to one follower! Comment below with your e-mail & I will select a random number this Saturday! :)

Happy New Year!
