My Students

I am Speech Language Therapist who works in a Title I elementary school serving students from kindergarten through 5th grade. Recently, my elementary school was hit by a tornado, destroying my therapy room and all of my therapy materials. The majority of my students are living at the poverty line. Many of my wonderful students have reading disabilities, ADHD diagnosis or developmental delays. My students are eager to learn, but they have challenges in learning. Their delays result in needing "less table work" and more "hands on fun" to learn. Funding for materials is lacking within my school district.

My Project

These materials will help engage my students to improve their communication skills and reading skills. My students will use the Lego Animal Bingo to target concepts, descriptive skills and following directions. The Lego Build me Emotions set will help target descriptive skills, following directions, and social and emotional concepts. The Kooky Carnival Context Clues and Extra Extra Informational Text games will help my students improve their reading comprehension skills. The Star Power Premiere Following Directions Game will help them be better listeners in the classroom.

Having hands on materials for my students will keep them engaged in their learning!

Please help my students have the materials they need to be better listeners and communicators.
