I am a new Special Education Teacher for Severely Emotionally Disturbed 3,4 5 and fifth graders. I have 2 assistants and between 8-10 kids in my class. I would like to know how long you spend on each thematic unit, and I am interested in buying some of your plans. First I have to make sure that it goes along with the program I teach. Some of my children have dyslexia, or processing problems, and others are above average intelligence. Loved your site, Laura

Dear Debbie, I have been invaded by meat-eating ants for the first time, and in the spirit of "if you can't beat 'em, study 'em" went searching for ant info. Thank you for a great resource. I still don't know how to get rid of them, but I'm a big softie anyway. Thanks again. Sincerely, Annette

WOW! Thanks so much for all the wonderful ideas. I really enjoyed the story stretcher on Frog and Toad! It's funny because just about 2 hours ago I was thinking how to expand my everyday lessons on the weather and the thought of measuring rainfall came to mind. But I wasn't sure how to go about it. I teach second grade and your ideas for measuring rainfall was great! I'll let you know how it works!
