Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

My students are fun-loving, happy kids in Prek thru second grade in a title one school. I work with individual students, small groups, and whole classrooms to improve literacy, language, and communication skills. We need extra support for developing our phonological awareness skills!

My students need extra practice to learn blending and segmenting syllables, sounds, and words, rhyming and onset fluency, as well as isolating final or medial sounds!

Skills that we take for granted when reading a book, website, email, newspaper can be extremely difficult for my students. The Heggerty curriculum is a research based supplement to classroom curriculum that targets phonological awareness in quick, simple, easy to follow lessons. Heggerty is based on research and uses a multisensory approach, using verbal instruction as well as hand movements to support learning. Other teachers and SLPs in my school system have seen amazing results with this curriculum. These manuals would be a game changer!

My Project

The Heggerty Curriculum will provide the phonological awareness instruction for students who are first entering school (PreKindergarten) all the way through 2nd grade! This curriculum is wonderful because staff do not need anything else which means it is easy to implement and effective. Heggerty provides 35-weeks of daily systematic phonological and phonemic awareness lessons for use in school programs as a supplement to existing literacy curriculum. From Heggerty: "When lessons are taught consistently each day with explicit teacher modeling and scaffolded support, teachers see improvement in students’ reading, spelling, and writing, as the students learn to hear the sounds in words."
