SPED Tricks and Treats (aka awesome ideas and FREEBIE!!)

Happy Halloween! I'm enjoying spending time with my little dinosaur :) and am excited to join this blog hop to bring you some sped tricks and treats just in time for Halloween. Be sure to keep reading because you can grab a nice treat for FREE!

(This little cutie is one month old already and is already 11 pounds!)

All special education teachers have many tricks up their sleeves. Here's a few of my favorites...
Did someone accidentally use a permanent marker on your dry erase board? Draw over it with a dry erase marker and it will come right off!!

Need to get something laminated but don't have time? Have a student who tears up every paper you give them? Or maybe drools on or tears up worksheets? Use a clearboard! 
I use these for certain students when we play Bingo (I've learned it's not worth it to laminate all of those). I also use these for seasonal worksheets that I want students to practice on over and over again...but don't want to laminate. 
Some people have been able to find these at their Dollar Tree! Of course, Lakeshore Learning will have them. Or you can buy 10 for $12.99 on Amazon!

Have a skill you want your students to work on? Are they sick of worksheets and direct instruction? I don't know why exactly, but all of my students LOVE file folders! They don't seem to think they are real work and enjoy playing file folder "games"! Trick them into learning! Haha. You can tell I love file folders because I have a wide variety of file folders that trick my students into practicing their life skills here on TpT

Here's one file folders from my best selling Grocery Store File Folder Pack that works on product matching and size sorting. Or, if you want to use with a lower level student, just focus on their being able to match the products. Click the graphic below to get this file folder for free!

Still looking for some fun instruction for Halloween? My students have been loving these Halloween journals and math packs!

  3. OMG! Your little guy is so cute as a dinosaur (I do love me some dinosaurs so I may be partial). He is hanging on my refrigerator with all my wedding and birth announcements and he makes me smile every time! Looks like mommy-hood is treating you well!

    You AUT-a Know

  4. Your little is so cute!! Thanks for the great ideas!!

  5. Love your dinosaur! He is getting so big! My second just turned 4 months old! Time flies, enjoy it! Thanks for the freebie!

  6. Your little dinosaur is adorable!!! I often use the erasable sleeves for activities with my kiddos. A few years ago I used old report covers that I found on the free table and put duct tape around 3 sides to make my own. They work great!
