There's no such thing as the perfect lesson, the perfect day in school or the perfect teacher. For teachers and students alike, the goal is not perfection but persistence in the pursuit of understanding things. - Carol Ann Tomlinson and Jay McTighe

"There is no greater divide in life than the one between kids for whom the experience of learning to read is a painful tedious one, whose rewards are remote if real, and those for whom the experiences of reading and writing are addictive, entrancing, overwhelming, and so intense as to offer a new life of their own - those for whom the moment of learning to read begins a second life of letters as rich as the primary life of experience."- Adam Gopnik in Angels and Ages

IEP4U.COM has over 4000  Goals and Objectives (IEP-ITP) each with changeable benchmarks. The Idea Statements are spread out over seven subjects (Domains) an... Teachers, parents and students can now access objectives directly from this Web Site. Input key words, phrases, or test names in the search engine to find just the correct objectives for your students needs. Copy and paste any information you want, then modify the objectives (examples) to exactly describe the needs of your students. The kid section will give your students personal input to write their own objectives (with your help) and to play some interesting games as well.

This information is is designed to help you with the daunting task of writing proper IEP's  The data within this web site was written to correlate with the unique characteristics of various formal assessments. Since assessment is essential for the development of the IEP, specific questions were evaluated and idea statements written based upon those questions. Searching the data for idea statements by assessment will enable teachers to plan lessons or web quests based upon how the student scored on the assessment.

Students can pick their own IEP using Pictures!

Chapter 7: Who Am I?
I think the authors have some really great insights in this chapter. All of us who teach or are associated with 4 to 6 year olds, know how difficult it can be when a child is throwing a temper tanturm or has decided to "shut down". No matter how hard the teacher tries, the misbehaving child is holding the classroom hostage by thier behavior. Teaching a child how to regulate thier emotional self is a cruical part to early childhood education. It is an unfortunate reality, that children who come to us emotionally immature are frequently the same children who do not do well in school. I'm sure as you read the authors words, you thought of particular students who tantrumed in school and how frustrating it was to all involved. The authors further point out that these coping skills are frequently learned from their interactions with thier parents or caregivers. Once again , the authors point out the importance of talking with kids about thier feelings and having them label thier emotions.
I, also, thought the work on when it is appropriate to praise a child and how was thought provoking. I think intrinsic gratification is too great an expectation for 4 and 5 year olds. Yet, I do think children need to be commended for effort and perserverance.
