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 Michael W.


My dream for my family is to be happy.
My dream for my school is to have all smart students.
My dream for my community is to be clean.
My dream for my country is to stop the war.
My dream for the whole world is to be safe.


Happy Thanksgiving
On this day my family is coming over to my house
We will talk, we are going to play with the dog
We will go outside and play
We will eat ham, turkey and corn,
And finally, we will play video games.



All by myself I can play basketball
But I need a friend to rebound for me
All by myself I can talk on the phonr
But I need a friend to talk to me
All by myself I can read books
But I need a friend to read with me.

All by myself I can play my game
But I need a friend to play with me
All by myself I can do math
But I need a friend to help me with my math better
All by myself I can walk in the park
But I need a friend to walk with me.


Photobucket - Video and Image HostingI USED TO…BUT NOW I…

I used to be a football player
But now I am a basketball player
I used to bad in reading
But now I am good in reading
I used to in the 6th grade
But now I am in the 7th grade
I used to a baby
But now I am a boy
I used to be in Bowen Elementary School
But now I am in Jefferson Junior High School
I used to be short
But now I am tall
I used to like red
But now I like blue
I used to have a dog
But now I am a fish
I used to be bad
But now I am good
I am Michael W


I am autumn
I wonder if the kids enjoy my presence
I hear wind that’s blowing
I see a scarecrow up in the tree
I want autumn to stay
I am autumn.

I pretend it is not here yet
I feel cool breeze touch my skin
I touch a scarecrow up in the fall
I worry if I have warm coat to wear
I cry when autumn leaves
I am autumn.

I understand it will go down to 50 degrees
I say it will be cold
I dream I was a scarecrow
I try not to feel cold
I hope autumn comes back
I am autumn.

I AM...

I am Michael W.
I wonder what I want right now
I hear the teacher talking
I see kids writing a poem
I want some green money
I pretend to be a basketball player
I feel happy because I am writing a poem
I am Michael W.

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!
