  1. Since visual students learn best when their sense of sight is engaged,I create assignments and activities that allow them to develop and apply their visual information handling skills by using their abilities to organize images for display,manipulate or transform existing images. In addition, I allow time after teaching for the students to close their eyes and visualize what they have just read or learned.
    Me,I’m feeling super wonderful ????

  2. Thank you for sharing this resource! I will definitely check it out for ideas that can enhance my instruction in my specialized classroom. (Insert thumbs up!)

  3. My emoji for today is disappointed. I received an e-mail from my administrator about a lesson I was doing with my students criticizing my method. A suggestion in person would have made much ore sense. It is not even my observation year!

  4. As a very visual person I could love to learn how to weave that into my teaching. Today I’m feeling and loving the fall air. ????

  5. The young children in my program would greatly benefit from visual environment and curriculum. This medium represents possibly the most versatile and dominant learning style of varied developmental levels in children. My emoji would have been a happy and hopeful image.
