Hello everyone... I have just spent my entire Spring break as a first year special ed teacher organizing all of my materials we used into neat boxes...but as I did this I realized that as a self contained teacher I will have at least half of my students again next year. I was wondering, of you have the same set of students, do you recycle old themes and lessons and just do different crafts/worksheets? Or do you completely start fresh and create an all new curriculum? When I did my student teaching in a gen ed room the teacher was using worksheets from the 90s. She had everything she ever made, plus the curriculum from the school. Teaching alternatively assessed kids in self contained, I have no curriculum...I had to start from scratch. I guess I'm just worried about next year...and the year after. Do I have to make or buy all new material year after year? Or can I use the same stuff even if I have some of the same students?
