My Students

Can you imagine how frustrating it is not to be able to express your wants/needs? Or, when you do express them, no one can understand you?

I serve students in grades PK-5 and 9-12.

These students have various disorders that negatively impact their ability to communicate and excel academically. Some of my students have poor articulation skills that interfere with others being able to understand them. Other students have poor language skills and just don't know how to tell others how they are feeling. If that wasn't bad enough, these articulation and language deficits can also negatively impact their reading, writing and spelling.

My Project

The Phonemic Awareness Activity book that I have requested will provide activities that will help my student's to improve their articulation skills by increasing their letter/sound understanding. This will help them to be understood by others as well as improve their phonemic awareness for better reading and writing. The Following Directions book, Look, Listen & Do book and Name That Word game will help my student's language skills to improve. Language skills include vocabulary, listening and understanding what you hear and using grammatically correct speech and are essential to academic success. To improve my student's reading skills, I have requested Sight Word bingo and the Capture the Flag reading comprehension games. I feel that it is important to keep learning fun, and these games will make improving reading skills enjoyable. Finally, the Journal Prompts book, Writing paragraphs and Short Reports books that I have requested will provide my students with daily writing practice.

My goal for every student is to help them along their journey to becoming productive members of society.

Communication as well as reading and writing are essential skills in this journey. With these materials, I will be able to improve their chances of being successful, not just in their education, but in life!
