4 Must Have Resources for Preschool Special Education

If you are a new or veteran preschool special education teacher, here are a few preschool resources that are must haves for your classroom.

Visual Schedules

We all thrive on schedules- preschool students included! Having a solid system for visual schedules from day 1 will instantly build structure into your preschool classroom.

Morning Work

Starting your day off in a consistent way is a great way for preschool students to know what to expect and reduce any anxieties about school. The Hello Binder is a way to have a differentiated morning work binder for each preschool student that works on important basic skills and life skills.

File Folders

File Folders are a great hands on activity for non-writers (aka preschool students). They allow the preschool students to independently practice skills. You can even use errorless file folders to increase independence before adding in more difficult skills.

Morning Meeting or Circle Time

Once all preschool students are in the classroom completing morning work, it’s time for a morning meeting or circle time. This whole group time should be highly supported and hands on in the preschool setting. Utilizing real pictures helps students to make connections. Start with 3-4 morning meeting activities and expand as students are able to sit and attend for longer periods as the year goes on.
