I have an amazing class with ten adventurous students and three wonderful paraprofessional aides. All of my students have various IEP goals, behaviors, and speech delays.
My students are in Pre-K/Kindergarten and are diagnosed with autism.
Currently in my class I have ten students, a number which will gradually increase at any moment. None of my students are able to effectively communicate their basic wants, needs, and emotions. Currently we are using picture icons to support their communication needs.
My students are energetic, bright, and very dedicated to learn. They range in age from 3-years to 5-years old. Our school is a Title I site. My students come to school to be loved, appreciated, and taught. They have lots to overcome, but they still come to school with smiles on their faces that brighten up my day. These little ones are learning so quickly! The newest of my students has mastered using picture icons for managing their daily schedule and has done so well with following the classroom routine. We work every day on their diverse IEP goals, social skills, and their speech and language acquisition, strengthening their fine motor skills along with our new curriculum.
These materials will be used during our R.E.L.A block and throughout the day to enhance my students learning of sight words to help them with early comprehension skills.
The Lakeshore Nonfiction Sight-Word Readers introduce my students to a non-fiction text, with realistic colored pictures that focus on just 5-10 sight-words at a time, which will stimulate their interest in reading of the sight words and encourage them in early literacy as well.
The Leveled Sight-Word Practice Cards set is designed to help students master sight-words level by level. This set will give my students the opportunity to read the words in context and complete engaging activities included. The set is a hands on experience for the students which reinforces their understanding of the sight words, comprehension, and writing skills.
The Learning Sight-Words Activity Chest allows the students to to explore sight-words hands on in an engaging manner. In this set the students can match, find, build and write sight-words. This activity set allows for multiple means of expression incorporating an important learning tool for the student of Universal Design for Learning. The students will be able to learn to best of their ability and not be limited to one way. The Learning Sight-Words Activity Chest will help to teach sight words, along with early reading strategies.
