New Download!

I have received some requests recently for a downloadable version of my Student Cheat Sheets!

This template will allow you to create a one page summary of the most significant snapshots of your student's IEP’s including:

·      Student Information
·      Special Alerts
·      Related Services
·      Daily Living Skills
·      Reading, Writing, Math, and Social Skill Levels
·      Modifications and Management
·      Testing Accommodations

I guarantee these sheets will help you stay organized, plan differentiated lessons, and ensure your team members have a quick understanding of who your students are!

  1. Thank you for this cheat sheet! I am a new middle school special ed teacher (6h-7th), and I will be organizing a binder and using this cheat sheet! I push-in to comm. arts and math classes for 6 hrs, and pull-out students for a 35 min resource time each day, and am really overwhelmed with focusing on helping them reach their IEP goals with this schedule. The binder is something I can carry to each classroom. Do you push into classrooms also?

  2. You're Welcome! I used to push into classrooms in my former position as a consultant teacher, and I brought a binder with me everywhere! It's the best way to have what you need at your finger tips since you are always on the go between classrooms. You may also want to bring a folder with you or make an extra section in the binder to carry around specific strategies or modifications that you are using with particular students. For example, I had a student who wrote on special lined paper, and a student who filled out a behavior card each period. Having extras of these kinds of things on hand will prevent you from having to run back to your room all the time! I'm not sure what your students are like, but you may find that their goals are inevitably being touched on throughout their classes. If not, you can use your resource room time to create activities that will be addressing and reviewing the content they are working on, and also their goals. For example, if you have a child who has a goal for problem solving in math, you can give them a scenario of something that applies to one of their classes and have them work on identifying the problem, key words, etc. I hope this helps! If you want more information on how I track goals, check out my post called Student Goal Tracking. Good luck you will love it!

  3. Hi Nicki,
    I am a pre-service health education major and I think that this cheat sheet is a really good idea. I have two questions: The first is how has this cheat sheet helped our your students. And also the second is have you noticed that the students have a better understanding of the material after completing this sheet?
