We got this book out from the library and Ethan loves it!!!! I may have to buy it.

1-2-3 Va-Va-Vroom

It is great for counting and rhyming.


All the pictures are all bright and colorful. 


It is a simple story, but a lot of fun and I know my kiddos at school will love it too!







Link up with Mrs. Jump's Class to share your favorite books.







I made some more work tasks, which I hope my kiddos will enjoy.

This particular task came from Awesomeness and Autism. I have a lot of pencils and erasers so why not use them rather than sitting in my drawer?!


Shape and Color Sorting. I got these foam shapes in the Dollar Spot at Target. 


The eggs and foam pieces I had. Super easy!


I got the idea for lego puzzles from Little Miss Kimberly Ann. When I get to school I am going to put these on the mega blocks I have. The pictures are larger and intended for that use. 


You can grab this freebie here


You can get the patterns here. 












Well, I have already tweaked my work task system to having students matching the color picture to the box they need to complete.

Check out the Autism Classroom News for more work task ideas!



First, I just discovered Tasha's blog A Tender Teacher for Special Needs and she has this fun Sunday linky that I am participating in.


Every year I make magnets with contact info. I just save magnets from pizza places and other random places and then print out the contact info on Avery labels, stick on, and you have magnet with contact info that your parents can keep on their fridge. It is easy for the parents to remember the phone numbers they need to contact if their child is going to be late or absent.


I am also linking up with Learning Lessons with Mrs. Labrasciano.



Here are some of my back to school must haves
1. velcro for adapted books, attaching names to different things, file folder games, and I am sure there are more things I use it for that I can't think of.



2. Laminating pouches. Since getting my personal laminator I will not laminate that much at school unless it is items that are not going to be used frequently. The laminating pouches are so much stronger than the lamination available at school.



3. Clothespins. I use these for work tasks, fine motor tasks, hanging up student work and for the behavior clip chart.



4. Colored ink. I print most of the games that I will be using at the start of the year and I go through A LOT of ink.




5. Coffee! I need some extra caffeine to keep me going the first few weeks as there is just so much to do!



What are your must haves?! Have a great Sunday!
















1. Well, yesterday was my birthday and although we didn't do anything yesterday for it, tomorrow I am going to go shopping for some new clothes! Yay! I haven't really bought anything new because I have been trying to lose this baby weight, which I can finally say is mostly gone!

2. This past week we went to the water park. I am going to miss daily outings with my little ones once I head back to work in a week and a half. Yikes!





3. I got some new school shoes. I love the brand B.O.C. because they are comfortable and cute!

4. Also, I am looking forward to the TPT sale. I have my store all ready to go, as well as, my basket all ready to be bought! You can go to my store here.


5. Here are some items in my store you may be interested in.
