5 Pinterest Collaborative Boards: Teaching & Education

I must confess that I am now an official Pinterest addict and I have spent more than an hour of my waking day to devote to building content of my awesome Pinterest teacher boards since its inception in November. The great news is that I'm now opening them up for collaboration!
What are Pinterest Collaborative Boards? They are actually boards on Pinterest that allow other pinners to pin content on the board. Yes, it's that plain and simple! I believe that I have great colleagues who are also Pinterest users (like YOU!) who would want to share pins centered around teaching and special education. Collaborative boards on Pinterest are a great way to share your information to other teachers and networkers, while also generating great back links to your blog or website.
My Pinterest boards are now open, please leave a comment on the latest post and I will certainly add you. Let's start sharing!

Poems by Exceptional Child: DESIREE A.

Art technique:

All about me can’t you see.
I am only the number 3 and the letter z.
All about me he she can you tell me.
All about me tea is very good to me.
So you can’t tell me about my self that I don’t already know.

I am a respectful person.

I am on my way to the next level.
I am leaving and going to the next level new level for myself.
I am leaving and going to a better me.
To start my adult hood to go to college and other better things in life.
I am going to a higher level like high school and leave all the little things behind me.

All about me I am like tall as a tree.
Free like a bird flying so high.
I am a young black pretty young woman.
Just let me but free all about me.


D-designer of clothes.
E-exchange for other things.
S-safe to wear in any weather.
I-incalculable, very good clothes.
R-real clothes I design.
E-excerpt of my clothing.
E-expand the things of other designers I did.


Girl living America
Dancing, Joking
Swimming, jumping, skipping
A friend of almost everybody


Come on homeless people no more sleeping all day
You need to get up early and get yourself a job
Not everybody gives money every time you ask
Walk up early with joy and get a job.

I wish I could help you with money or food
For some people are mean not helping you
If I were rich I’d give you what you need
Because I care for you indeed.



I don't like war
because people die
not just your family
but your friends alike...

I don't like war
because people die
and I could tell a lie
war is not funny...

I don't like war
because people die
even to those who don't fight
we have to say bye-bye...

I don't like war
because people die
they get shot to the ground
bleeding to death
and slowly their body drifts
away from life.

The piece that begins "All about me" is very creative, a fine piece of writing. I enjoyed the feel of the poetry as I read it, and the images it gave me.

WELCOME SY 2014-2015!

Teachers & parents tell me that this blog is like a "One-Stop-Shop", here's why ---

There are tons of lesson plans, printables, activity sheets and other resources that special education teachers can find in this blog! It's all for you to get the lil ones engaged in their seats and lovin' what they're doin'!

This blog is also our class portal to communicate information about our class, to archive course materials, to publish the course curriculum, syllabus, class rules, lessons, homework assignments, rubrics, and presentations. Yes, everything is in this blog for our students to review our lessons at home!

Parents love the transparency and the ability to access class materials in this blog. It's easy for parents to follow along as my students post their work. This holds true for their psychologists, social workers, general education teachers, and other special ed providers. This is another way for us to collaborate with the Multi-Disciplinary Team members of our students!

This class blog also serves as our students' e-portfolio. Our students collect the work they want to consider highlighting and then publish those that represent their best work. They then reflect on their work as they share them to their parents and teachers for positive comments and feedback. It's very easy for them to look back over their work and see the growth they've accomplished!

We invite you to please leave a message to our students. Beside the tiny envelope just after each entry is the comments link. Your positive feedback will surely encourage our students to do their best in school.

Thank you for visiting our class portal!
