I am thrilled to welcome Tara from 4th Grade Frolics to the tour! You can head on over to her site to grab a lesson plan I wrote to go along with my new book. I appreciate her having me as a Guest Blogger today. The lesson plan can be adapted for grades K-5. Stay tuned as we make our last stop on the tour tomorrow with another talented teacher!
Also, a blogger friend of mine has reviewed books for me in the past and she posted a review today on her blog Chalk Talk. Another chance to win!
This evening you can tune into my radio interview with Charity on Blog Talk Radio. The interview with Charity will take place tonight, January 29th at 8pm EST on her show Chatting with Charity. You can listen in here. Charity writes for the blog the Organized Classroom. She also writes for Teaching Blog Addict. Both blogs have a wealth of knowledge and creativity to share with teachers but as a parent, I find both resourceful as well.
Since I am expecting a lot of visits today and tomorrow on my blog from teachers, I am giving away two copies of a book about inclusion of special needs students. It is written from a parent and teacher’s perspective. I know from my college experience I really felt a lack of information on teaching special needs students in the general ed. setting. We needed a book like this in my classes! The book was written by an author friend of mine, Jennifer Greening.
Here’s a little about the book: Have you ever wondered what it takes to educate your child with special needs in their neighborhood school? In Opening Doors, Opening Lives: Creating awareness of advocacy, inclusion, and education for our children with special needs, Jennifer Greening tells the story of her personal experiences related to getting her daughter, Marissa, integrated into the general education system.
Written in a style that is gentle and friendly, Opening Doors, Opening Lives contains information that parents of children with special needs can use for their own child’s educational journey.
