Indiana Goes Back to School! A Hoosier Blog Hop!!

So are you ready to go back to school? I am gearing up for the first days of teacher training this week, and can't wait to get into my classroom to start setting up. Students will be walking through the doors before we know it, and we Hoosier teachers wanted to help you get ready! We are sharing fun back to school freebies and previews of our latest and greatest products that you must have before the big day!

As a special education teacher I like to start off the year talking to my students about their plans! What do you plan to do with your life? Where will you live? What career are you thinking about? I've always wanted to have a better system for collecting this information and motivating students to take an active roll in planning for themselves. So I created this packet! Which is geared towards students with disabilities but could be used with all students. I think taking ownership in their own education is a good thing for everyone! Here's a look at what you will find in my Student Data Notebooks pack...

It is full of planning pages, posters, activities, and recording sheets for helping students create long and short term goals, track their progress, and understand what having a disability means to them. There are writing pages and plenty of opportunity to differentiate for the specific needs of your students. I am so excited about using this resource in my classroom this year, and I think you will love it too! Click on the pictures above to see it in my TPT store and download a larger preview!

You can get two posters from this set for FREE by clicking on the pictures below. Wouldn't it be wonderful if every teacher in every classroom discussed disabilities with their class and shared these thoughts?? I sure think it would! So I hope many of you will use these this year!

*** UPDATE*** I got these posters printed at Staples for 98 cents each ....

you can also have them laminated for $2.00 and they look amazing, can' t wait to hang them in my classroom!  I've been printing so much from Staples this year since I have one close by and can pick them up in the store within 24 hours! It's been great!!

Don't forget to check out the next stop on this blog hop Susan over at Imagination Station is up next...

Pick up many more freebies, preview great back to school products, and keep on going all the way to the end of this hop where you can enter to win a $75 Gift Card to the store of your choice! Isn't that an Amazing prize!! Click on the picture below to see what's next!
