Many of you know I teach special education, which covers a very broad umbrella of kiddos. There are a TON of great resources out there, but since many students have multiple needs I often found myself searching and switching screens. Not a good use of time…. enter SEN teacher! This site has it all and in one place! print-ables, free software downloads, customized search engines. It has really saved me a ton of time and headache.

 And it is FREE!!

Works for Me Wednesday- Visual Schedule

 Being a teacher, I am all about routine. Of course, my 2 ½ year old usually has other ideas. Bedtime seems to be especially hard for us. Since we work all day we tend to be more relaxed in the evenings and can lose our consistency. To help us stay on track I made this visual work board for Mark.

First I printed off icons for the activities that make up our routine. (You can use any clip art or photos, I used the simple ones from a program I have on my computer)

Next, I had Mark color them. I then glued them to a long piece of construction paper, laminated it and then hung it on the wall. Mark takes great pride in telling me what we need to do next. This has helped us stay organized and maintain the consistency a 2 ½ year old thrives on.  Visual bedtime schedules work for me!
