Hello! I’m a first year FLS teacher in a k-2 school. Anyone know any good resources for curriculum or life skills ideas? I feel like I’m drowning when it comes to academics but golden with paperwork

Functional life skills? If it's special ed I STRONGLY suggest "Essential for Living" by Patrick McGreevy. He is phenomenal and his curriculum is research based. There is a lot of info online and if you like podcasts I could search in my library for the one where he discusses his curriculum. It seriously is amazing and teaches soo many things from how to correctly turn on the water for a shower (he once knew a child who died from severe burns because the water was too hot) , to making requests, to communicating they don't understand what someone is telling them, etc. Check it out!!!!!!


Oooooh! Thanks so much!
