Ms. Beller from Brooklyn NY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Let's Teach Speech!

My students need literacy materials that will help them acquire vocabulary. I am requesting a set of alphabet books, a story book, and beginning basic vocabulary books.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Please help support my students who are struggling to learn vocabulary. My students have multiple speech and language disabilities, which prevents them from acquiring skills as quickly as students who are typically developing. Students need to be able to know vocabulary before they can communicate.

These resources I have requested will provide exciting ways to help my students learn vocabulary and acquire pre-reading skills.

My students have limited vocabulary skills and these engaging materials will help spark new concepts. The students will have so much fun with these materials, that they will forget that they are in speech therapy.

My Project

I am requesting alphabet books, a story book, and beginning basic vocabulary. I have chosen resources that will help my students with vocabulary, pre-reading, listening, concentration, sound discrimination and articulation. These skills are crucial to student success and academic progress. These resources will help students learn key concepts and common vocabulary.

Please donate for a good cause.

With these resources I will work my best to help maximize student potential and establish communicative competence. I will use these materials in a fun, yet challenging manner, and I am sure my students will greatly benefit from your help. Thank you!
