Hi-- I was wondering what should I expect the first day of school with special education. I came in the first week of December last year, so I missed all the back to school things. This year I will teach 5th grade, where all the subjects are departmentalized. I have 8 students on my caseload D ), 3 of those are full inclusion, and the other 5 are Self-contained for reading, writing, and math and inclusions social studies and science. I don't go back to school until Aug. 22, so I don't know who to ask about this. If anyone has any suggestions as far as lesson planning for the first day (or two) and/or what to expect that would be fabulous!
