This is my second year in special ed. First year I taught a resource ELA classroom; specifically very low readers/writers, small classes. Many on BIPs, ESL with SI, ADHD, mild autism, MR, etc. I have never taught in a functional skills classroom. I'm even confused about the title; I'm hearing different things from different people. Some say it's LIFE skills; others say it's not 'quite' LIFE, but a step up. Meaning the kids are on a more functioning level. Still...I'm nervous and trying to get prepared for the first week. Not sure what to expect. This will be a new school and district. I could use any wisdom anyone has...especially activities the first week.
