This year we have a brand new special education kindergarten at our school. Though we have great materials trickling in for our students, there are still a lot of things that our students need. In a half-day setting, we have a limited time to make a big impact.
In this short time, our students have been working hard this year to make the most of each day.
In addition, the students in this class come from a variety of backgrounds and have a variety of learning needs. Our teachers are working diligently to meet each students individual needs to the best our abilities.
Kindergartners these days have a lot of hurdles and stresses in this fast-paced world, but these all come to school with a positive attitude ready and excited to learn.
Listening comprehension is a vital part of developing literacy skills as well as an important component child development in general. A listening center enables teachers to provide students with multiple exposures to a variety of text to increase their listening comprehension. Listening centers are a great way to increase comprehension of students who are still developing their literacy skills and are just starting to read independently.
This listening center will be incorporated into our skills-based rotations daily to help support students individual speaking and listening goals.
Small groups of students will listen to and complete projects about strategically selected text allowing students to maximize their learning time independently while adults are working with other individuals and small groups of students.
