My students are 3 and 4-year old pre-kindergarten students with various speech delays. Some of my students have developmental speech disorders while others have language delays, difficulty speaking fluently, or may be deaf and/or hard of hearing. They are from diverse backgrounds and they walk into class every day full of energy, excitement, and are ready to learn.
They are a part of an early intervention program that provides them with extra support before entering kindergarten.
Our goal is to help them become mainstreamed into a general education kindergarten classroom.
My students need magnetic letter tiles to build phonemic awareness skills. Normally we share a class set of letter tiles, but due to COVID-19, each student would need their own set. Also, some of my students are learning online and some of them are face-to face. When I do activities, I always want to ensure that my students at home have the same supplies as my students in the classroom. These magnetic letter tiles will help me implement phonics activities, speech activities, letter recognition activities, and much much more!
