    Hello all,

    I have just recently accepted a pre school position. I am new to the teaching world and am a career changer. I am totally excited about working with little children, but need some help:help: Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas about books, music, circle time activities, lesson plans, play-time activities, etc? Does anyone know of any good web sites for P_SPED? I will not know anything about my students, their IEP's, head-count until the 17th, but would love to get a jump start on things so I can get focused and prepared.:thanks:

    *OK LET ME try this again! I started to post and something went wrong and the window shut down before I could post it!!! ARG!!!*

    CONGRATS!!! This is my 10th yr of pre-s spe!

    There are lots of links on my school site. http://bcmnc.blount.k12.al.us/links.htm A lot of times I just adapt ideas from other pre-s and K sites.

    Here are some useful sites that are SPE related...

    I went to a week long autism training this summer and they did stuff like this. I'm going to make some for my room. I'm psyched about it!

    Need picture symbols (like Boardmaker)?

    This site isn't SPE but it really helped me out my first year.

    Her monthly activities index was a life saver for me as to what to teach and when... letters, shapes, colors, numbers, fine and gross motor skills, art, rhymes, you name it! I printed up just about every page and put it in a notebook for a reference!

    Have a great year!!! If you have any questions, we here on AtoZ are here for you!

    Special,

    Thanks a lot!!! I am planning on checking all of these sites out. Yesterday I went to a teacher's workshop with a friend who is already a teacher and I made lots of cutsie stuff. It was a blast!! My theme is going to be animals and then I will focus with bears and my theme is "learning is beary fun". I am getting very excited!!
