My Students

Help me, help my students learn and have fun playing games at the same time.

Our school is diverse with a students of different races, ethnicities and socioeconomic status.

We are a Title I school of excellence with a majority of students on free and reduced lunch. These children rely heavily on school to help develop their cognitive, behavioral, and social skills. All of the students we serve have speech deficits such as: receptive & expressive language disorders, articulation disorders, and fluency disorders. Additionally, many of the children have fine and/or gross motor deficits.

My Project

I use books such as early readers during speech therapy on a daily basis. Students are often expected to listen to stories and then be able to answer questions and demonstrate comprehension. What happens to the student who struggles with comprehension or answering questions? Well, that is one way I help my students develop language skills while keeping the activities academically relevant and applicable to what they are doing in the classroom. For my students who have more intensive needs, I use stories to promote engagement and help develop basic language skills such as labeling or identifying. Board books such as "Mr. Brown Can Moo Can You?" help my students to develop language skills such as imitation and naming in a fun and engaging manner.

I would love to have a larger library of books to turn to in order to meet the needs of my students.

It would be a dream come true to one day walk into my classroom closet and have an abundance of books to choose from for each of my sessions.
