Starting the morning with a calendar activity is a great routine for the students. They will learn the days of the weeks and answer simple questions.
The teacher can use these cards to practice these basic sight words. The non-readers could be asked ‘to find Tuesday, it is yellow.’ Some students might know their letters only. For these students, the teacher could tell them ‘Friday starts with an F. Which card has an F?’
This free activity comes with printable cards to assist students in calendar use.
I am beyond grateful to have materials from SpecialEd Simplified! The lessons are broken down and accessible for all of my students. It is much easier to focus on delivering meaningful instruction when I don’t have to worry about developing the lessons myself.

SpecialEdSimplified has been a lifesaver! Their Alternate Assessment products are aligned to the standards with multiple formats to allow access for all students. Implementing their products in my classroom has kept me from needing to reinvent the wheel and allowed me to focus on instruction and the needs of my students.

The curriculum is a time saver for busy teachers. The curriculum gives me a place to start instruction, and I don’t have to put in hours searching for picture symbols or coming up with my own ideas from scratch.

SpecialEdSimplified has been an invaluable tool in my special education classroom. Teaching students on alternate assessments and paths to graduation is a constant struggle due to the shortage of quality materials and texts. SpecialEdSimplified provides quality materials that align with the general education curriculum and help prepare students for assessments. Get it!!! Now!! Make your life easier and your students’ learning better.

I teach a wide variety of grades. I'm in a small school that has middle and high schools combined. I teach 6 grades. So, having pre-made materials that I could print and sort by student made it easy for me to stay organized while working with multiple students on multiple grade levels, ability levels, and subjects all at the same time. This same binder system also eliminated the need for substitute lesson plan preps as my paraprofessional and the sub were able to easily see where each student was at that moment and continue instruction.

Trying to teach standards to students with significant cognitive, communication, fine motor, gross motor, and social skills deficits is like trying to catch a wild muddy hog! Thankfully SpecialEdSimplified has done exactly what their name says! Taken abstract standards and turned them into accessible and simplified standards for my students. SpecialEdSimplified not only simplified the standards but also my lesson plans!
