Finding a curriculum that fit the needs of all of my diverse students was difficult in my first few years of teaching. But then I found the Leveled Daily Curriculum from The Autism Helper, which changed my life!
Setting it Up
If you do not have Curriculum Access, then you won’t have access to the Placement Assessments and that’s ok! You can make your own placement assessments by picking a level and a page or two from some of the units. See how your students do with those to determine if it would be a good level for them to start at. If the level is too easy for them (scoring 90-100%) move up a level. Also, if the level is too hard for them (scoring below 50%), move down a level.
Creating Center Groups
Most of my students are in levels 1 and 1.5 for language arts and math, so I keep them together by levels. Also, I have two students who are in level 2 for math so they are grouped together. Last, I try to keep in mind student abilities, personalities, and behaviors when grouping my students. Because of numbers, I have to have some students who are working at different levels in the same group but so far, it has worked out for us.
Booklets and Anchor Charts
Additionally, I need to be able to pull my curriculum quickly therefore, I keep my student booklets organized in this file rack from Ikea. My student booklets are organized by center rotations so the first row is my center rotation 1, the second row is center rotation 2, and so on.
