Help me give my students materials to help them become better readers and lifelong learners! We will practice reading and speaking into whisper-phones and I will use the apron and felt pictures to tell interactive stories!
Hi! I teach preschool special education in Allegheny County, right outside of Pittsburgh, PA. I’m a different teacher than you might be used to as I travel around three school districts and push-in to preschools, daycares, and homes of students aged 3-5 that have IEPs. I have up to 40 students in three low-income school districts and I try to provide them with the most comprehensive services possible in their natural setting! My students have varying degrees of developmental delays, but are smart, curious, and so loving!
All the materials on my list are already planned for and will immediately become loved! I go into daycares, preschools, head starts, and homes and work with children with Individualized Education Plans.
I will use the apron and felt story pictures to take interactive storytime on the go with me!
The whisper phones will be used by myself and in conjunction with my speech therapist to practice so that my students can hear their own voices and work on social communication. The leveled books and letters are to help my students get ready for Kindergarten!
I can also send books home with my families to read in between our weekly sessions, but I have 40 students so it's sometimes hard to have that many books to lend out! The remaining supplies will be used for literacy-related crafts such as decorating letters with the corresponding letter stamp and practicing sequencing events.
