Candy Heart Graphing!

Love candy hearts? This year besides sorting by color I had my students sort on the graph and then we colored in each box that we had that color heart for. This is another math sheet I got from

Heart Counting!

As a math center I used a template I got from to have students work on matching number to quantity and word in various levels. Here are some of the pictures I used with a brief description in the comments on how I adapted each one.

Crazy Month

After being swamped with alternative assessments and sick kids, I'm writing this blog in the waiting room with a 5 year old going stir crazy. I am back at it full swings to get information out that I have found useful in my special needs class. Every week I will post my classroom theme and some ideas that I have used in my room. I will post ideas, pictures of projects on the blog for you!

Making Colored Glitter

With the holiday season upon us I was in need of some glitter for my students art projects. Not being a fan of glitter we were out. So I found a recipe on Pinterest using salt and food coloring to make our own. This became a great science lesson for my students as we made it. I gave each student some salt in a bowl and put a few drops of food coloring in the salt. Students stirred and then poured the salt on a cookie sheet to cook for 10 minutes at 350 degrees and we had our own glitter! My students loved it. I liked the fact it cleans up nice with the only downfall being it's not as shiny, but the colors are beautiful!
