ABC's Sound Good to Me!

My Students

Knowing your ABC's and being able to identify them and the sound associated with them is a must in order to learn to read. Several of my students have difficulty with this concept and often come to speech with sound substitutions.

I work with students ages preK-5th grade that have speech/language disorders.

My students are so excited to be in a learning environment! The majority of the students I work with come from lower-income families and have poor developmental skills in multiple areas.

My Project

The alphabet sounds teaching tubs would be an excellent resource to aid my students with sound/letter recognition while teaching them to become more independent. The storage unit would allow my students to go and get the tubs independently work on their individual speech sounds and return the container to it's correct spot. A variety of activities could be done with the manipulatives in each sound tub such as naming, ABC order, hide-n-seek object, descriptive guessing of each item, etc. Not only would these items be used for my students with speech disorders they could also be used with my students who have language disorders. The students could compare/contrast the manipulatives, write stories about the items in each container, make a guessing game for their peers with each item...The list goes on and on!

We often take learning and identifying our ABC's for granted.

My students could use these simple manipulatives to start at the level they are at and continue to make tasks more difficult for them to gain higher concepts.
