Christmas IEP's for SPED Teachers?!

Thursday, December 22, 2016





As special education teachers we live and breathe IEP’s. What areas of need does Johnny have? How can we help bridge that gap? What skills would be most beneficial for him to learn? Then we collect our data, Every. Single. Day.

In the spirit of Christmas and IEP’s I thought I would mix the two and have a little fun with it!

I present to you- Every Special Ed Teacher’s IEP goals for the Christmas Break.
1. When given a time of quiet, the SPED teacher will rest and relax with 100% accuracy, in 5 out of 5 trials, by the end of this winter break as measured by Checklists.


2.When given the need to go to the bathroom, the SPED teacher will NOT hold it for 5 more hours until he/she has the time to actually go and students are no longer at school, with 100% accuracy, in 5 out of 5 trials, by the end of this winter break as measured by Checklists.



                 At the end of the day, and you race the teacher across the hall to the staff bathroom.... 







        3. When given the opportunity to hang out with friends or family, the SPED teacher will happily join them and NOT worry about all the lesson plans, IEP’s, data analysis, paper grading, and progress reporting he/she needs to do with 100% accuracy, in 5 out of 5 trials, by the end of this winter break as measured by Checklists.



        Don't let this be you. 






      4.When given a choice of a Christmas movie, the sped teacher will pick out whatever they want to watch (Elf, Christmas Vacation, Bad Santa, A Christmas Story, Home Alone) and NOT worry about what learning objectives they need to make sure they cover so they can actually watch it, with 100% accuracy, in 5 out of 5 trials, by the end of this winter break as measured by Checklists.


  Why? Because you can. 





]   5. When given the option, the SPED teacher can indulge in a manicure or football game and not worry about school, with 100% accuracy, in 5 out of 5 trials, by the end of this winter break as measured by Checklists.
            

      Let THIS be YOU! 


        


    6. When asked what they want for Christmas, the SPED teacher will give an answer of something other than KNEX, Velcro, Storage Bins, or Legos with 100% accuracy, in 5 out of 5 trials, by the end of this winter break as measured by Checklists.


I'll be honest, while that is ridiculously cool, I am guessing no matter how awesome your lego building skills are, you won't be able to make a lego Ryan Reynolds. ;) 





Are you going to work on your Christmas IEP goals over the Christmas Break?  I've made you a data sheet so you can keep track of your progress! ;)










I hope you had some fun with this silly little post. I hope it made you chuckle, and I hope you do enjoy your break! All teachers need a break some times.
