Special Sunday

August is almost over and I'm back to work on Monday 
(the kids don't start until the following week though).

To celebrate I'm joining my Special Ed Teacher friends for a Special Sunday.
Each teacher is offering a product at either 25% or 50% off (or both).

On TpT just enter #specialsunday in the search box and you will find all of the products being offered tomorrow.

I'm offering my Fall Math and Literacy Work Stations for 50% off.  
That's like buying one and getting one for free.

And I'm also offering my Fall No Prep Bundle for just $5.  
That's only $2.50 a packet.

Science Saturday - Fizzy colours

Since we have been talking about colours this week, I thought this fizzy colours experiment was perfect.

You will need:

baking soda
food colouring
an eye dropper or syringe
flat dish

Add vinegar to the cups and add a few drops of food colouring to each one.

Put a layer of baking soda on a flat dish.

Use the syringe or eye dropper to pick up some of the colour and drop it on the baking soda.
See what happens.

Experiment with different colours.

The children wanted to do it again and again.

This is day 2's lesson. As you read the story, have the children colour in a spot on the dog.

Work Station Wednesday - Dog's Colourful Day

It's work station Wednesday and I thought I would highlight one of my favourite books for the beginning of the year.

"Dog's Colorful Day" by Emma Dodd.

Now this dog goes about his day, getting a new spot on his body for every item he runs into.  It's perfect for working on colours and numbers.

When I do this book, I read it to the children every day and each day we work on a different skill.

I believe that it's very important to work on sentence structure with my non-verbal students as well as my verbal students.

This activity is perfect for that.  As we read each page, I have the children make the sentence "Now Dog has _____ spots.", changing the number each time.  I think it's important for the children to move the words to form the sentence, so that they realize that sentences are made up of individual words.

I love this activity.  As we read the story, I have the children put the correct coloured spot on the dog and put the number of spots in the box.

This activity also works on forming sentences.  We talk about what item is on dog.

As we move through the week, the sentences become more complex.  By now, we've read the book quite a few times and we talk about the object and the colour.
