Yesterday I explained my worksheet system for homework and independent work binders. Of course my whole class cannot do worksheets – that would be too easy. We special educators thrive off complications, exceptions, and everything individualized, right?! Some of my kiddos need a little something different. As I took the pictures for this post, I realized I have kind of this obsession with binders! I have binders all over my room. Jeez I am weird…
Homework: For my students who are lower functioning and do not read/write, I like to make a take home binder of velcro pages. If the parents are pretty involved, I’ll have them keep the binder at home and send new pages every few months or so. That has seemed to work very well for some of my guys. The parents are always thrilled too – to have work that is appropriate for their child on hand in the home.
Independent Work Binders: For my independent work binders, specifically the ones in my fluency station, I make the same type of velcro work. Depending on the student, I make a variety of matching, sorting, and dry erase sheets.
Some pages from the binder-palooza that is my classroom:
I also love these question pages:
The weather and calendar related pages are on TpT under my Calendar Time Packet and Daily Weather Activities (weather packet is free!). Some of the sorting pages are similar to the ones in my Sorting File Folders 1 and Sorting File Folders 2 packets. Instead of putting them into folders I just made them in page form! I plan on uploading the question sheets in the very near future! Happy Sunday 🙂
