Laminated Pouches for Speech Homework Folders and Visual Schedules

My Students

I have many wonderful K-5th grade students on my Speech-Language caseload. They are working on a variety of goals including: practicing speech sounds, learning pronouns and basic concepts, and working on fluency and social skills to help them communicate with friends and classmates more effectively.

Many are also require unique instruction to help them flourish.

Homework speeds their progress and helps to consolidate the gains they have made in the speech room. They learn through a variety of games, social activities, iPad apps and literature based language tools.

My Project

Many of my speech-language students are motivated to do homework. They work on speech sounds, basic concepts, and other language skills with their parents on a regular basis. This speeds up their progress and limits the amount of time they will need speech therapy.

The students can laminate their speech homework folders and decorate them before taking them home.

Regular manilla envelopes fall apart within a few weeks and constantly need to be replaced. Parents end up throwing them away and homework sheets get lost in their backpacks. By having laminated envelopes they can decorate them with markers and seal in their pictures.

I have the laminator, but the laminator pouches are expensive. It seems like a small thing, but having a nice looking, durable envelope that is laminated is very motivating to young students. Many of my students who are visual learners may also require a visual schedule to help them navigate their school days. Lamination pouches work great for creating them and changes to daily schedules can then be written in with dry erase markers.
