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 Antioniqua P.


My dream for myself is to be a fashion designer.
My dream for my family is to go on a vacation.
My dream for my school is to have the whole building fixed.
My dream for my community is not to have murders anymore.
My dream for my country is to have a whole make over.
My dream for the whole world is to have all fun and peace everywhere.

I wonder if I am getting something for Christmas
I hear a lot of Jingle Bells
I see a lot of white snow
I pretend that I am sledding
I feel the snow falling on me
I touch the presents when it's time to unwrap them
I am excited for Christmas.



All by myself I can play games
But I need a friend to play with me
All by myself I can be sad
But I need a friend to make me happy
All by myself I can jump
But I need a friend to jump with me.

All by myself I can read
But I need a friend to read with me
All by myself I can play basketball
But I need a friend to play with me
All by myself I can do hair
But I need a friend to help me do my hair.



I used to be a shy singer
But now I am a singer
I used to be a bad jumper
But now I am a good jumper
I used to be a baby
But now I am a lady
I used to be ugly
But now I am pretty
I used to be a mean girl
But now I am a nice girl
I used to be a baby to baby-sit
But now I am a baby sitter
I used to be a poor in writing
But now I am a good writer
I used to be a shy girl when I was little
But now I am nice
I used to be skinny
But now I am fat

I am Antioniqua P.


I wonder if my life is going to change
I hear that fall is coming
I see the leaves flying
I want the leaves to fall down
I pretend I am dreaming about the leaves
I feel the air breathing on me
I touch the crunchy leaves
I worry when the leaves fall down
I cry when I see the leaves go away.

Remembering 9-11

I am depressed
I wonder if those people who came out alive are still ok
I hear people crying and yelling
I want the people who died to come back alive
I am depressed.

I pretend that I ain't crying
I feel so sad because it hurts me bad that a lot of people died
I worry about the people that were in the plane
I cry when I saw a lot of people crying
I undrestand why they attacked the Twin Towers
I say that I wish that the people who burned the Twin Towers go away
I dream that one day they will build another Twin Towers
I hope that all the people who died go to heaven
I try to pray for all the people who died
I am depressed.


I AM...

I am Antioniqua P.
I wonder if I'm going home today so I can sleep
I hear music on the radio
I see the trees out the window
I want some money when I go home
I am Antioniqua P.

I pretend to act out when around people
I feel happy when I see my friend
I touch my hair every morning
I worry about myself
I cry when I see sad movies
I am Antioniqua P.

I understand my homework
I say nice things to people
I dream that I have some money
I try to get good grades in class
I am Antioniqua P.

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!
