My students need hands-on activities to help improve critical thinking, vocabulary and expressive language skills.
I am a speech-language teacher at a public school in the south Bronx. Many of my students with speech and language disabilities often struggle in areas of executive functioning, receptive and expressive language skills. Although they present with these challenges, they always put their best foot forward in working towards improving those skills.
What I love about my students are their inquisitive minds and their zeal to learn.
They enjoy hands-on activities and benefits from multi-sensory approaches to increase their comprehension and critical thinking.
As a speech-language therapist, I am constantly exploring various methods to provide engaging and fun ways for students to work on improving their speech/language goals. Some of these goals are geared towards expressive language skills, increasing vocabulary, answering inferential questions and identifying main ideas. Students will be able to use the Accountable Talk Reading Discussion starters to assist in verbally expressing their ideas with ease about a topic during group discussions. Students who struggle with semantic skills will definitely benefit from the "Can Do!" Vocabulary game which will help expand their vocabulary use. In addition, the Making Inference Finding Kit, Carnival Context Clues, and the Main Idea Game will also be a great way to continue fostering problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
These fun and engaging hands-on activities will help students with their expressive language skills as well as reinforce concepts that are imperative for academic success such as making inferences, identifying main ideas and using context clues.
