Mrs. Hannah from Waco TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students wonderful interactive and wordless picture books for our speech therapy room library.
Working in special education, I see so many different types of kiddos everyday. Currently, I work for a special education co-op that services over 10 different schools in a rural county north of Waco, Texas. I see many children multiple times a week for speech therapy.
My students are incredible and capable, but each has a speech and/or language disability that is negatively impacting them in the classroom, usually in regards to literacy skills.
Many have additional disabilities or impairments including Autism, Dyslexia, ADHD, Down Syndrome, Intellectual Disability, Sensory Processing Disorder, and many others. On top of all this, many of my students come low income homes. I do my best to ensure my students have everything they need to succeed, which currently means providing language and literacy materials that will expose them to new experiences and cultures.
Because my students all have some form of speech or language disability, reading and comprehension of books can sometimes be a challenge. Literacy skills are so essential to classroom success however, and I want each of them to experience the joy of reading. In order for this to happen, my students need different kinds of literacy materials.
Wordless and interactive picture books will help my language impaired students explore literacy in creative new ways.
Since these types of books are so versatile and open ended, my students will have the opportunity to engage in story-telling and build narrative skills, as well as inferencing skills. Interactive books will give my younger students something to do with their hands and improve their learning with movement. These books will be able to be used with such a wide variety of ages and ability levels, they would be a game changer for my speech students.
