Hi, and welcome to your group. I say your groups because, while I'm the moderator, you get to determine what we talk about.

This is a place to get to know each other, share ideas, resources, problems, joys and frustrations. If you're classroom is anything like mine there will be a lot of all of those.

I hope you will enjoy the time you spend here and benefit from joining this learning and sharing community.

Hi! I was happy to stumble unto this special education site. Retirement came a little early 4 me, but it's still interesting 2 keep my hands in the educational process. I spent 18 years in SP Ed. mostly kindergarteners coming from the pre-school for 18 years-lots of experience with behaviors and curriculum-would be happy to mentor young teachers or problem-solve.

I just finished my 13th year

I just finished my 13th year of teaching SPED at the elementary level. I have a self-contained classroom of around 10 students with many different types of disability. My most exciting news is I just became a parent of a special needs child June 10th. I gave birth to a little girl with Down Syndrome. I am looking forward to being a part of this group not only for my classroom, but now for my family too.

There are excellent examples of lesson plans on line that you could use as a guide. Alot of them are free so avoid paying. However, EdHelper is a wonderful site but it does cost. It is well worth it.

Start with the unit you are going to teach and break it down into how many days you think it will take. Remember "hands on" activities work very well. You will also need to be flexible according to the needs of your students.

Hope this helps.
