Each day when my Resource Room students come to class, this is what they see on the SMART Board.
By using the “order” tool in the draw menu I can layer the icons and hide them behind the large purple box.
As you can see from the screen shot below, I have customized all sorts of icons that I can drag to the main page.
This is a very quick and easy way to prepare students for class that I just came up with this past year. (Prior to that, it was a list on the board.) If there was ever a day when I did not have the screen up and ready when my first student came in, he would be all over me. “Are we not doing anything today???!” He always took it upon himself to pass out the materials and supplies for all the students. Talk about a useful tool.
How do you let your students know what they need each day?
What other icons would be useful?
