My students need various literacy and math resources about dinosaurs, including a theme book library, puzzles, manipulatives, and hands-on activities.
Help our students with special needs use dinosaurs to learn valuable literacy and math skills! What child is not intrigued and fascinated by dinosaurs? They're excited about this unit and are ready to learn while having fun!!
I am a Speech Language Pathologist in an inner city, high need school working with Pre-k through 8th grade students.
I am collaborating with various special education teachers to create language-literacy labs. Our students range in abilities, but they are an awesome group who are very excited about school and eager to learn. They work best when they are highly engaged and interacting in the lesson. Their learning styles vary from kinesthetic to auditory to visual. These students face challenges everyday learning and communicating.
By collaborating with my school's Special Education teachers, we have created thematic language-literacy labs. Integrated teaching is an excellent medium for bringing children and skills together. Our next theme will be dinosaurs. The dinosaur theme box materials will help students identify and compare dinosaurs, learn about fossils, as well as practice writing and math skills. The theme book library will provide students with language-rich illustrated fiction and non-fiction texts. The Dino Tracks Graphing Game is an excellent way to incorporate math in an engaging yet educational way. It will help our students learn about simple bar graphs and probability. The dinosaur puzzles assist with counting and sequencing skills.
Thematic units provide one of the best vehicles for integrating content areas in a way that makes sense and helps students make connections to what they learn.
They must be able to transfer the knowledge they learn and apply it in a meaningful way. Students will learn broad skills such as sorting, describing, and comparing/contrasting! These skills are necessary for success. These materials are perfect because they are highly structured, visual, and functional. Thank you for your support!!!
