My Secret Teaching/Learning During Quarantine Tool + Angelman Syndrome

Hi! I know it’s been a while but a lot has happened since the last time I blogged! I hope everyone is safe and doing well. I pray that you and your loved ones are well.

Before I start, I wanted to mention a special company that is so dear to my heart, Educational Insights! 

If you know me, you know I brag about them 24/7. I honestly love this company and everything they stand for. My kiddos and I love using their tools in our classroom! A while back, before the COVID-19, my kiddos and I received a gift! Not a regular gift, a cool educational gift!

IMG_4452 (I keep all our Hot Dot Pens and cards in this container for my kiddos to place back and that way we can keep it organized.) I also had 2-3 kiddos trying to take them home.

My kiddos enjoyed working with our Pete the Cat and Ollie! They loved our sets! Since the day the started to use them, I could see their confidence building up! If they made an “oopsie” they would look at it again and when they got it right they cheered! You can also find out what other items I use from Educational Insights and how I incorporate them in our learning environment by clicking this other post here. 

However, since we are under “digital learning” or “working/learning from home” not all my kiddos were able to take a Hot Dots pen home with them. Instead, we are able to pull up resources provided on their website! 

In addition, they provide all types of learning resources for all KIDDOS! Including kiddos in the early stages of learning! I recently purchased the Playfoam, and let me tell you, it is wonderful for therapy!

Many of you may not know, but my younger sister has Angelman Syndrome. She is currently 16 years old but due to her development delay I would say she is still in the early learning stages. Since we are learning from home, she is not able to receive her services for her safety and her therapists. So now more than ever, my mom and I are responsible for providing those sensory and learning opportunities for her. This Playfoam is perfect! The texture is amazing! Crystal really enjoys it! Plus, its mess free! That’s right! We don’t have to worry about cleaning up any mess! We recently replaced her old sensory box with one filled with Playfoam and a couple of different objects.

As soon as I get a chance I’ll upload a picture here! You can also find Educational Insights on Amazon! If you are interested in purchasing from their website they always have promo codes! As of today, they have a 30% off site wide (excluding sale items) with the code LEARN.

Check them out! Also, if you would like me to do a blog post about #Angelman Syndrome let me know! I’m more than happy to let you all in a special place in my life!

Also, this blog is not sponsored. All recommendations are legit!

Thank you for your unconditional support.

Educational Tools! + Teacher Budget Friendly!

Hi! Welcome!

As an intervention specialist, I am always looking for fun, educational, and interactive tools for my children to use in and out the classroom! Since my classroom is a #TeacherFundedClassroom I am very selective of what tools to incorporate. If you follow me on instagram you know one of my favorite brands is Educational Insights ®.

In my first block for the day, I have 13 kiddos. Since they are in first grade, their goals are entirely different. Most are sight words, writing sentence structure, reading fluency, reading comprehension, and I have a specific child that works with letter recognition.

To be completely honest, it is often very difficult to sit with a child one-on-one, let alone help build their confidence. With this said, it has been over a week now since my kiddo started working with the HotDots alphabet and phonics kits. I decided to pair those kits together since they go hand in hand! I highly recommend this product! I don’t think I can express how important it is to incorporate fun educational tools in the classroom.

When I finished with my assessments this week, I noticed a huge boost not only with his confidence, but with his letter recognition! I am truly amazed! I know I wouldn’t be disappointed.

I recommend this product for parents, guardians, caregivers, and/or teachers, to use with their children. It’s definitely worth the price!
