Students with speech and language impairments from pre-K to 5th grade will engage in these activities, enjoy learning and practicing, and improve their speech sounds, vocabulary, conversational, social, and language processing skills through motivating and fun activities. Several standards in ELA are addressed in therapy, including - but not limited to ELA K1.1, ELA 1.1.1, ELA 2.1.1. Playing games also improves their ability to work cooperatively, turn take, and interact appropriately with their peers - something they have missed out on during COVID. I have a large range of students whom I want to reach and engage during speech time which will motivate them to continue the work at home. A positive experience in the speech room builds their confidence and motivation as a communicator, and ultimately, increases progress rates and decreases time spent outside of the general education classroom. Many of the requested items will be used as reinforcement to keep the kids engaged in their session and focused on their tasks. Functional communication skills are developed with manipulatives and building toys by requesting and making choices in order to complete a task Social skills and cooperative learning are developed by playing cooperative and competitive games by learning to work together towards a common goal, turn taking, sportsmanship, and conversational skills. With storybook kits and activities related to them we will develop language and literacy skills such as answering and asking questions, recalling details, building vocabulary and other semantic skills, as well as addressing narrative skills such as story retelling. These skills transfer to the classroom in reading and writing.
