So, if you didn’t know this already, I love Amazon. No, like I REALLY love amazon. I’m the neighbor with the Amazon boxes on the doorstep… EVERY DAY. It’s so convenient- especially when shopping with a toddler is the alternative.
BUT… did you know I place all of my Amazon favorites on my very own storefront? This keeps all my favorites in categories and makes them super easy to fine. I have everything from prep materials to books about children with disabilities on my storefront.

You’ll be able to see my favorite lamination (hint… it is NOT scotch!) , binding machine, task box essentials, and all the brands I use and love so much!
This multicolored masking tape (affiliate link) is an amazingly low cost organization tool! My number one hack for this tape is to create a grid to track when each student leaves the room… sort of like an “at a glance” calendar! It helps everyone in the room keep track of students and the craziness that can be therapy schedules! You can also use it to divide spaces on tables when students are working together or create a grid for student schedules!
Another great organization tool are these plastic envelopes (affiliate link)! These shown are the mini folders and they are great for holding schedule pieces, token boards, or file folder pieces (attach to file folder with velcro!) The big version is perfect for storing full sheets of paper for anything you have downloaded from TPT to keep all your master pieces organized and easy to pull year to year.
If you take behavior data, you must be familiar with tally counters… but are you familiar with the rainbow counters (affiliate link) ? These are fantastic for separating for each students, staff member, or for distinguishing between multiple behaviors for the same student!
It’s a clip board… it’s a folder… it’s a clipboard folder (affiliate link)! These are a godsend truly. I used them for behavior data. You can keep behavior plans inside to refer to…. you can use the folder to cover sensitive student information. They are light and thin and DURABLE! A must have for heavy data taking daily!
Dry erase pockets (affiliate link) are a must have for self contained. Sometimes a dry erase marker is just an easier tool for students who are beginning to write by hand than a pencil. They are also great if you want multiple students completing the same worksheet (like at centers) but want to save on paper and ink! A behavior trick for these is to give to students who often rip papers… these are more durable than regular paper. These are super durable for daily use!
Whether you are a new or veteran sped teacher… I’m sure you are familiar with how much prep work is involved in sped resources. This paper cutter (affiliate link) saved my life my first year teaching! It’s super sharp… super light… and super easy to travel back and forth from school to home with!
Dot a Dot markers (affiliate link) or bingo daubbers are the perfect tool for students who aren’t efficient writers yet. They give students a way to use worksheets and answer multiple choice questions! These are perfect for comprehension work!
These are just a few of my favorite amazon resources and they are all under $25! Most under $10! Add them to your amazon wishlist today and check out the rest of my list here!
Happy Amazon shopping!
