JennI am a student who is in Grade 8 and he loves Math. He is working at about a Grade 3 level and he seems to have a real problem understanding the concept of subtraction. I have tried everything. He can do addition and multiplication, but subtraction...he does not get at all. Do you have any advise?
Natasha please use my email above to ask questions and I will get back to you promptly.
Hi,I am starting my 1st year teaching in a middle school autism program. You are one of the first blogs that I have found focusing on middle school. I have some questions regarding setting up the classroom and materials needed. I am hoping you are willing to help me. Thanks. Jenny

Hi! I just found your blog and enjoy looking at your ideas and the way you have your classroom set up. I teach an academic self contained middle school. I have 2 or 3 higher functioning self contained kids although 1 of them has a lot of social/life skills to work on even though he has good academic skills. I had a question about your curriculum. I see that you use Edmark (I use this too) and I've heard of some of your other resources, but do you have any students who are higher level than Edmark? What do you do with them? Do you find Unique Learning is worth the yearly subscription? I'm interested but not sure if my district will purchase for me.
Hello, I was looking on pinterest and came across your "Ultimate guide to everyday sensory tools" chart. I was curious if you had that in the blog or on your teachers pay teachers material that I could print it off. I lvoe the way you broke down what the child is doing to what you could give them. I am a new special education teacher and needing some better ideas for my kiddos. Thanks so much for sharing all of your awesome ideas!
I'm having the same trouble! I've searched TPT and this site for over half an hour. Hopefully she is able to direct us!
Hi ladies! Thanks for checking everything out. Unfortunately that is just an image that I found on Pinterest. I couldn't find it on the web either, but if you do discover the original source please let me know!,
Hi! I am an Art teacher in a separate day school for students in grades 9-12. My students are ages 14-21 and have very diverse needs. Using centers or stations in an art room is new to me, so I am experimenting and looking at different ideas that will work well in an art room. I found your blog helpful. Take a look at some of the things I am doing with my students and let me know what you think. https://notesfromtheartroom.blogspot.comThank you! Noelle
Glad you enjoyed my blog! Good luck in your classroom!
Please leave a comment I'd love to know your thoughts and learn more from you! :0)
