Expanding Language and Social Skills Through Play
My students need a flannel board with manipulatives that correspond with popular children's literature and allows opportunities to expand language skills through play.
I am requesting a flannel board and felt pieces to assist in language learning through literacy. Many of my students have difficulty exploring their imagination and using their social skills due to the lack of age-appropriate materials that increases accessibility to literature.
I am a Speech Language Pathologist who serves a variety of children.
My students have language delays, stuttering issues, and/or speech delays which require specialized services several times each week. Some of the students have been diagnosed with other disorders such as Autism, learning disabilities, or cognitive delays. My students are curious and eager to learn but require modifications for success.
While reading a story from a book (such as The Three Little Pigs or Goldilocks), the students will use felt characters to participate and follow along with the story. After each page, I will ask questions pertaining to the story, and the students can use the characters to give an appropriate answer. After I have finished reading the book, the students can place the felt characters on the flannel board while retelling the story in the correct sequence. Additionally, the felt characters will assist the children in creating their own stories by using their imaginations. Students will improve their social skills as they work together as a group.
The materials that I am requesting will help my students engage with stories during speech/language sessions by allowing them to interact meaningfully with the text.
My students are eager and enthusiastic in their learning, and deserve bright and interactive materials to assist in maximum learning. By using these hands on, interactive materials, language learning possibilities are endless.
