Best of 2016 from NoodleNook!
Most Popular Topics of the Year
It is always a roller coaster when you teach in an Autism Unit… just when you get one problem solved… another one pops up.
Class finally settling into a routine? A new student enrolls.
It’s the classroom’s own Murphy’s Law.
So what have y’all been struggling with this year? These most popular topics have helped thousands of people… maybe they can help you too! Be sure to pin it so you can find these when you REALLY need them.
Most Popular Materials from NoodleNook
In post after post, we always end up on the topic of meaningful visual supports in the classroom.
It matters… it really matters.
More importantly, it makes a difference in your classroom. Those routines and procedures you want to get in place… the behaviors you want to address… the paras you want to get more onboard. You won’t get anywhere without meaningful visual supports in your classroom. That’s the glue that holds everything together.
Visuals are the force!
I guess it makes sense that visuals where the most popular materials sold in the store. need to get some for yourself? Visit the store, especially these most popular materials. they’ve made the difference and hundreds of classrooms.
Most Popular Curriculum Items
Behavior, procedures, and routines are only part of what we deal with every day. In addition to managing a student everyday needs and individualized educational plans, we also have to teach our kiddos! It makes sense then that the most meaningful curricular items were Adapted Novels and meaningful math activities.
Check out what topped these charts:
Most Popular Vocational Activities
And as if personal needs, individual plans, and academics aren’t enough, we are also responsible for getting students job ready. These vocational activities topped this year’s list and teachers are using them to make hundreds of students more work ready.
I have also had the privilege of being in classrooms that have used these materials as part of work systems to do vocational prep for students with Autism. How can these make a difference in your classroom?
