Sunday Seller Spotlight: Anderson Academics

Welcome to my Seller Spotlight Sunday.
Every Sunday on my blog there is a guest post from another fabulous TpT Seller. They will be sharing one free resource from their store, one paid resource from their store and something that they have been up to that week or similar! 

So, don't forget to check back every Sunday or sign up for my email list to get notifications of new sellers!

Up this week is Georgia Schneider from Anderson Academics! 

Hi there! I'm Georgia from Anderson Academics. I'm an elementary special education resource teacher and currently work with 26 students in grades K-5. You can also find me on instagram at @andersonacademics. This year has been crazy because my school recently moved to a holding school. It's been quite the process, especially because we moved over winter break!

However, there are some definite benefits to having a fresh start mid-year. Since January, I've slowly been implementing flexible seating into my classroom. At the beginning of the school year, I introduced one yoga ball into my classroom. My two rules for using it are that their feet must be on the floor and their bottom must stay on the ball. Otherwise, they are free to bounce away. I was amazed to see how many of my students, especially those with ADHD, love the ball! Some students were able to acknowledge that the yoga ball was too distracting for them, which impressed me even more. For those students, I've allowed them to sit on a storage ottoman or the floor to work. Recently, I've added some more yoga balls and a comfy chair. They're loving the extra movement in the classroom! I definitely recommend implementing flexible seating to any grade level teacher!

I also love using task cards to get kids moving around. That's why I wanted to share my most popular set with you! My older students (3rd - 5th grade) really struggle with two-step word problems. So, I created a Two-Step Word Problem Task Card set to use with them. I spread each task card out around the room and the kids have a blast moving around the room to answer the questions. It's a great resource for all kids, but especially those that need the extra movement!

I'd also like to share a freebie, IEP at a Glance If you have students with IEPs, it's a great way to keep track of goals and services. I hope you'll enjoy it!
