news-2-you: Happy Birthday Canadiens (November 23-27, 2009)
I got the idea to share the plans I'm making related to news-2-you from the blog entitled Teaching Learners with Multiple Special Needs. Each weekend I will put up a post about the current news-2-you topic and some of the extra activities we will be fitting in during the week. Note that not all of my students will do all of the extra activities as it is depenedent on student need and the amount of time we have in a week. If you are using news-2-you and you have some ideas that I have worked for you, please post a reply so that I can use the ideas if they are applicable to my students. Note that if I make any materials with Boardmaker, I will post them here for download as well as post them in the Adapted Learning news-2-you group.
