Time to reference that beautiful list of IEP goals you made earlier. You will likely need a decent amount of materials to target these goals. This could be a pretty hefty task right now but once you make materials for these goals you will have these resources forever. You will probably use similar goals again in the future with other students so it will all come full circle. Don’t let yourself get overwhelmed. Yes we want to work on loads of practice and generalization but to get started just make one simple set of materials. If your student is working on days of the week – make a set of day of the week flashcards. Later in the school year you can make day of the week matching tasks, day of the week work tasks, day of the week spelling, and so on and so on. But for now just get your bare bones resources for each IEP goal.
Store materials in the area of the classroom where you will be working on the goal.
So get prepping on all of those materials and put them in binders near the data sheets or bins near your direct instruction area. Keep it simple and manageable for now.
If you don’t want to reinvent the wheel, I very, very likely have a resource for your IEP goal. Take a quick search of my TpT store and feel free to shot me an email if you are looking for something specific and can’t find it! Check out some samples of different materials I use to target a variety of IEP goals:
Have extra work to practice the IEP goals.
Once you’ve got some basics down prep different tasks to target generalizing and practicing those IEP goals. This can get tied into those lovely task boxes we talked about, independent work binders, or worked on in small group with your students.
Check out some of my favorite leveled resources that are perfect for practice and generalization of a wide range of literacy and math goals!
It will take time! Rome wasn't built in a day! You will slowly, but surely get all of those resources ready!
