We are Thankful for Special Ed Teachers! and a Giveaway

As a thank you to all of the teachers, some friends and I have gotten together to offer you some amazing freebies.  This blog hop is geared for our special ed friends, but ALL teachers have those special kids in class that may benefit from some of these amazing freebies.  Many of the freebies can be used in any class.  I created this flip book and anchor chart set to be used with your sentence types unit.  The flip book comes in both color and black and white for easy printing.  (Click on the images to grab the freebie.)

In addition to the freebies, I am having 2 sales.  Make sure you fill up your cart now, so you'll be ready when the sales start!


And now for the giveaway!  MobyMax contacted me and asked if I wanted to try MobyMax in my classroom, so of course I said yes.  I was so excited to try it.  It is a web based program that can be used on a regular computer or an iPad.  Since I teach in a tech 1:1 school with iPads, I was especially thrilled.  MobyMax has a complete k-8 curriculum in ELA and math.  

My favorite part of MobyMax is there is a section you can assign particular standards to each student that reflect their IEP goals/objectives.  This program will take the data for you for your goals/objectives!!  If you're like me, taking official data is the most burdensome part of the job.  Don't get me wrong, I take data all day long.  I can tell you where each of my students are working, but I hate the official data collection.  Anyway, this program will do it for you!  Also, the program is super fun so the kids LOVE using the program.  Each subject begins with a placement test and automatically assigns lessons to the kids based on their placement test.  EVERYTHING can be read aloud to your kiddos!  EVERYTHING!!  That thrills me.  This program is very easy for our special friends to use and they learn from it.  Also, when the kids are working and on task, they are earning time to play in the game room.  They earn 1 minute of play time for every 5 minutes they are on task.  If the students are "on task" and clicking lots of buttons (wrong answers) they do not earn game time for that.  When my students realized that, I had several mad kiddos.  I explained to them, they had to have at least 80% correct to earn game time and then I showed them the percentage they were at and they understood that hard work = game time.  That put a stop to random clicking right away.  Here's the exciting part, MobyMax is offering a 1 year subscription to another teacher for FREE!  Use the Rafflecopter to sign up for a chance to win. You will not be disappointed!!
