Ms. Speech from Vacaville CA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a hands-on, interactive way to build concepts! Large colored photographs help teach these concepts. By making learning fun through games, throwing a bean bag builds real-world connections!
Have you ever thought about what it would be like if you could not speak? Everyone communicates and every voice matters! Our students are Kindergarten-6th grade and have a variety of intellectual, communication, physical, visual and sensory impairments. Our students have so much to communicate! Most of our students use alternate forms of communication such as facial expressions/body movements, pictures, symbols, books, and "talkers" with communication apps that speak words out loud based on symbols the students select. Our students prove that everyone thrives when they have individualized communication supports!
"Just because you don't speak, doesn't mean you have nothing to say."
Our students need to experience concepts in a variety of real-world ways to learn them. Using large, simple, color photographs is a great way to introduce and learn these concepts! Will you help us build our inventory of concept photo cards and learning items?
You can help bring foundational concepts and vocabulary to life for our students!
As we continue to practice these concepts, we make learning fun! Our goal is for students to build their receptive (understanding, ex "Touch ___"/"Where's the ___"'/"Which one shows ___") and expressive (telling someone what you know, ex "What is this?"/"What's happening here?") language. These concepts build the foundation for students understand and express what they see around them, for example combining subject + verb + description + preposition/location.
Imagine how much more fun, natural, and hands-on it is to use all your senses during a lesson. For example, instead of "Point to the cat" we can make it more fun by saying "Put this on the cat" and a student can toss a textured bean bag to the picture the teacher is describing!
