I've been searching for the fonts that are on all these cute printables that I find on Pinterest and I finally found them.  They are called Alphabets and can be bought at Lettering Delights for about $4.00 an Alphabet.  If you sign up with your email, every once in a while they will send you a coupon for 40% off.  Here are just a few of my favorites out of the hundreds o their website.

Modern Desk Caddy


Fidgets are small objects that can be beneficial for students who constantly have to move or have difficulty with paying attention or anxiety.  It is something that a student can fiddle with while paying attention or working.  If a student "plays" with the object, it is not a fidget but a toy.  Here are some awesome fidgets that I have found and just bought:

Figurative Language and Analogies Cards

Here are some of the awesome things I bought with my school money this year. They are picture cards for teaching metaphors and similes, idioms, and analogies.  They are $12.95 a deck at Super Duper Publications.  They also have other "fun decks" for nouns, pronouns, verbs, sequencing, prefixes and suffixes, plurals, adverbs, conjunctions, classifying, cause and effect, predicting, "wh" questions, irregular verbs, subjects and predicates, possessives, homonyms, homographs, comparatives, multiple meanings, antonyms and synonyms, compound words, contractions, plurals, and SO much more! This is going to be great for my autistic students to have visual!

Free Picture Exchange System (PECS) Cards

I learned about this website in college and have used it ever since.  It is called Do2learn and it has a variety of free printable pictures in the following categories; self-help, activities, home and school, social, safety, and a calendar.  The website has a lot of other resources but the picture cards are my favorite!
