Instruction for Children with Special Needs

Ticket Out the Door
Situation: 

I am a Learning Support teacher and I am looking for some ideas to share with a Regular Education Science teacher to check if our shared students with disabilities are grasping the key concepts in his class. Sometimes when I review with them they have no idea of what was discussed!

Beginning Scissoring Skills with a Mural
Situation: 

My child is in kindergarten and doesn’t like to cut. She just becomes frustrated. What can we do at home to help her become more skilled and to like cutting. Everything is cutting in kindergarten!

Guided Note Taking
Situation: 

I have a student who sits in class and never seems to be paying attention. He doesn’t take notes during the lesson and when test time rolls around; he seems unprepared and ends up doing poorly on the exam. How can I help him follow along with the lesson in class?
