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 by Exceptional Child: BIANKA H.

By Bianca H.
Grade 9

Snow is white
Snow is bright
The wind is strong
But winter won’t be long.

Art Technique:

I am Bianka
I wonder why the birds be singing.
I hear gunshots each night.
I am from Washington D.C.
I always go to work with my mother.
I always go to gogos on Fridays.
I want to go to the movies.
I want to go to the mall on Saturdays.
I love to eat pizza and hot pockets every night.
I want my education for school.
I dream of getting a lot of money every night.
I dream of going to heaven one day
I am Bianka.


B- Beautiful Girl
I- Inspring Lady
A- Adorable Person
N- Nice
K- Kind Friend
A- Author of poems


Nice, goofy
Talking, running, jumping
A very goofy girl!
Young lady.


Wake up homeless don’t sleep it
Wake up homeless you got to fight it
Wake up homeless ask Jesus to forgive you
Wake up homeless if you want to see somebody
If you want to go somewhere
You better wake up and pay attention.

Wake up homeless stop crying
Wake up homeless no more sleeping outside
Wake up homeless no more stealing
Wake up homeless the devil is using you
Get up and receive the blessing
Remember homeless, God is watching you.



All by myself I can play basketball
But I need a friend to play with me.
All by myself I can jump rope
But I need a friend to turn the rope

All by myself I can sing
But I need a friend to back me up.
All by myself I can walk to school
But I need a friend to walk with me.

All by myself I can look at the sky
But I need a friend to tell me why it’s blue
All by myself I can pick tomatoes
But I need a friend to hold the basket.

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!
