5 Things to Know When Printing Online Resources

I love that we live in a time when we have so many resources available right at our fingertips. Gone are the days of flipping through workbooks at the copy machine, just find what you need online (lets be honest...on Pinterest or TpT) and print!

When printing your digital resources, check out these tips and let me know if you learned anything new or if there are any tricks I missed!


First, ALWAYS, print from Adobe (or maybe another PDF reader). If you print directly from the internet, things are more likely to get messed up and you don't have as many options.

Incorporating Theater into the Special Education Classroom: Five Myths

I know what you're thinking, theater in my classroom? Yeah right, my students don't even talk. Well, I beg you to think again! I've recently met Katie from 4th Wall Theatre Company, and, guys, she writes plays for people with disabilities for a living! What a cool job, right?  I was so excited when she asked if she could talk about theater with you all on my blog.

As a special education teacher, you might be thinking how on earth could you incorporate theater into your own classroom, why you would even want to, how hard would it be, and how you could do it. Well, keep reading!


At 4th Wall Theatre, we teach that theater is made up of three elements: Singing, Acting, and Dancing.  Every student is bound to have a favorite (just like the professionals!), but all students are capable of participating in each of these elements.  Within each “element of the theater” are opportunities for supporting all abilities.

How to Prep Adapted Books for Special Education

I love making interactive / adapted books for my students! By giving students something tangible to interact with on each page, you promote engagement and can check for comprehension through out the story. 
Interactive / Adapted Books also give students a clear purpose for reading books if they don't see the value in reading yet. You can adapt the current books you have in your classroom by adding symbols or you can print and create your own books! Here's the steps I go through when putting together adapted books that I have printed.
