Hi mardie,

We use the DRA. It assesses reading; e.g. inferencing, making connections, and understanding the text.

I've heard of CASI, but never seen it. I don't know what the board uses at the...

Thanks pg!

Thank-you for your honest opinion. I might start off by trying the free samples. I do have my own reading program, but I need short books that my students can handle without getting lost. I teach...

Thanks Sam5

The information about leveled readers helps. I definitely need to have short texts at different levels.

Thank-you, nimmy!

I was hoping to use them as take home texts to insure that my students read. Last year, I expected my students to read twenty minutes each evening. Of course, they said they did, but I had no way of...

Reading A to Z

Hello All,

Has anyone had a Reading A to Z subscription? Is it as good as it looks? What was included in it? I'm thinking of getting it for my student support center, but I don't want to be stuck...

Part 2 AQs

Remember that once you have a year of supply teaching you can apply for Part 2 AQs. You just have to get your board to confirm that you have the experience.

Some boards count twenty days of...

Special Education

Hi ashley1616,

I took special education, in 2004, and that's what led to my contract. I started off as a supply teacher, then became an LTO (SERT), then became a permanent employee (SERT). It...

Might Be Able To Help

Hi Tiffany,

I'm a Special Ed teacher with nine Grade 6 students (who are writing at the Grade 3/4 levels). My kids need to learn their language mechanics and writing, too. It's amazing what...

Me, Either

I haven't received mine either. I think I applied too late.

Thanks brett158

I think I will do that. She was supposed to work on the student's IEP today, but said she didn't have time. I told her that's okay. I've added everything I wanted and I'm giving them all to the...

Hi SarahSLP

You know, I never thought of that. Maybe I should show her where the spell-checker button is. It is listed at the top with a check mark and ABC, but maybe she thinks it's for something else.

Thanks Lunalu

I'm not the only spec ed teacher affected by the poor spelling and grammar. I want to ask her to use the spell-checker, I just hope that she won't be offended. I think if she absolutely refuses, I...

IEP Conundrum

I have a problem with one of my IEP's:

My student's vision specialist wants to enter information on his IEP. The only problem I have with this is that she entered some information, the week before...

Heard It...

I'm 36 and I heard it, but then again, I know I have good hearing; it's to make up for being almost as blind as a bat. ;)

It's irritating, but I didn't find it very loud. I guess that means in...

Haven't Seen Anything

I haven't gotten mine either and I think I signed up in July. These things (free gifts, rebates) usually take 6 to 8 weeks to arrive and if they waited for September to start, then they won't arrive...

Have Them Ready

I'm in the group of "I have to have them ready, but don't need to hand them in." That is such a relief! It would be one more thing to worry about if I had to hand them in and, because mine actually...

1. If you had to do it over again, would you choose the
same field?

I've just started teaching, but I've always wanted to teach special education; so, the answer is yes. I love my job, even if...

Freak Accident

I agree with Miss Melissa about it being a ridiculous accident; so many people swim with stingrays and never get stabbed. I've seen shows where professional divers and average snorkelers alike have...

I left my government job, after my third year, because I could do it in my sleep and didn't feel challenged. I was also VERY unhappy. If you want to do nursing, look into it, find out how long it...

I can say that you are not alone. I start tomorrow and will be teaching Grade 6 Spec Ed. All I know is that I have nine students and will be teaching Language and Math (I hope).

Anyway, yes you...

Thanks Gina!

I actually managed to feel excited today as I bagged the things I want to take with me to school, but the nervousness sets in if I don't keep busy.

Anyone else going, "This time tomorrow I'll...

This is going to be my first full year of teaching. I had previously taught for five months in Quebec, but it's not the same when you know you have your own classroom for a year.

Getting Tape Gum Off Blackboards

Hello Everyone,

I went in today to set up my first classroom. It's a teeny class (I'm a special ed teacher), but I love it. I love the desk with its sticking drawers and the decades' old books...

Probably a Squirrel

I think it's a squirrel.

When I was in residence, the squirrels used to play in the tree outside my window all the time. The last girl to use my dorm room told me never to take the screens off...
