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!

Writings of Exceptional Child: KEVIN H.

By Kevin H.
Grade 7

As years go pass by
God reaches His hands out to His children
He goes several times to read
Our minds as years go by.

I remember the bad things that happened
But it has passed as years go ahead
I will be ready for another new year 2006
It's going to be better if I don't get sick.

As my future passes by as years go by
The world changes but we cannot change the past
May the Lord forgive my guilt
Everything I failed and I missed.

I hope 2006 be a better year
For you and for me, for everyone
As forever the clock goes tick tock
The world continues to roll round and round.


By Kevin H.
Grade 7

Santa is coming down the chimney
Leaving the angels to watch over him
Energetic reindeers follow behind him
Interesting gifts wanting for some opening
Going 5 miles per hour to get to the houses
Hoping the kids are fast asleep.

Kevin, Years pass by is so thoughtful. You are one bright young man. God certainly does reach his hand out to his children. You are so right about that. He has his hand on you for you are special to him. Know that the Lord forgives you when you ask him to. That was his promise when he died for you to save you. I pray that the New Year goes well for you, like you want. May God bless you in the year to come, and always.

I am a student from McKinley Tech High School and I think that your poem about the years going by was excellent. You were very creative and I can tell that you really mean what you say. I hope you do have a respectful and blessed year and lifetime

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!
