Reading Journals — Jimmie's Collage I’ve started using reading journals with Sprite. It’s a way to encourage her independent interactions with the novels she’s reading. Lincoln Novel, Bookmark, and Journal I printed and laminated these bookmarks and made a simple single fold book for her Abraham Lincoln biography (shape template). Jericho’s Journey and Reading Journal Here’s another one for Jericho’s Journey with a covered wagon image. Of course, she already interacts with text but generally in discussions with me when I tend to pull things out of her. Reading Response Prompts Minioffice She can also use the reading journal to make notes about the plot or about new vocabulary words which may be helpful for notebooking pages or a writing assignment. She does both narrations and reactions in her journal. I’ve not given this reading response minioffice to Sprite yet. reading response minioffice direct link to letter size cut outs & direct link to A4 size cut outs

À la petite École... Bingo des mots Tout d'abord, vous pouvez vous-mêmes créer une grille que vous pouvez faire photocopier (idéalement 5 carreaux par 5 carreaux). Si vous avez beaucoup de temps devant vous et que vous êtes avec des plus grands, vous pouvez aussi leur demander de dessiner eux-mêmes leur grille. Par la suite, à l'aide d'une banque de mots de votre choix, ( peut-être ceux que les élèves ont à étudier dans la semaine) vous demandez aux élèves de remplir leur grille. Une fois que cela est terminé, le bingo peut commencer! Les lettres B-I-N-G-O ne sont pas inscrites en haut de la carte comme dans un bingo conventionnel, car cela risquerait d'être beaucoup trop long avant d'avoir un gagnant! Lorsqu'un élève gagne, en plus de vérifier sa carte, vous pouvez augmenter le défi en lui demandant d'écrire ces 5 mots sans fautes au tableau! La mémoire des mots (Idée de Diane, merci!!) Un peu comme l'idée du bingo , on peut faire un jeu avec les mots de la semaine (ou autres mots). Amusez-vous!

janrichardsonreading Heidi Songs - Sing-Along Songs that Teach! AAC at Penn State | Improving literacy outcomes for individuals with complex communication needs Challenge Literacy skills are tremendously important in today’s society; they provide a means to enhance education, improve employment opportunities, develop social relationships, access the Internet, foster personal expression, and provide enjoyable leisure activities. Literacy skills are even more important for individuals who have complex communication needs and have limited speech. Literacy skills allow individuals who require AAC a means to communicate anything they want. Unfortunately most of literacy curricula require students to provide oral responses; these programs are not appropriate for individuals with autism spectrum disorders, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, and other special needs who have limited speech. Research Activities At Penn State, we are currently investigating ways to effectively teach literacy skills to individuals with complex communication needs.

Le développement du langage chez l'enfant de 1 an à 3 ans Les habiletés de communication des enfants commencent à apparaître dès le début de leur vie. Durant les 12 premiers mois, les bébés apprennent à communiquer et découvrent les sons de leur langue. Ils « s’entraînent » à les utiliser en babillant. Comment l’aider à progresser? Voici quelques conseils et activités visant à favoriser le développement des habiletés langagières de votre enfant de 1 an à 3 ans. De 12 à 18 mois Les enfants de 12 à 18 mois utilisent des mots simples pour indiquer les choses qu’ils voient et pour exprimer ce qu’ils veulent (par exemple, « encore »). À cet âge, les jeunes enfants aiment souvent regarder des livres, particulièrement ceux qui présentent des illustrations très colorées. Lorsqu’on leur lit une histoire, ils peuvent participer en montrant les images qui correspondent aux mots nommés ou en les nommant eux-mêmes. Ce que vous pouvez faire De 18 à 24 mois Mettez-vous à son niveau À cette étape, le vocabulaire de l’enfant augmente souvent rapidement. De 2 à 3 ans

Educational Computer Games and Apps for Kids Adventures in Literacy Land: Inspiration for Multi-Sensory Phonics Activities Hi everyone! It's Bex here from Reading and Writing Redhead. While working on phonics during RTI, I try and make the repeated practice as interesting and varied as possible, while still being effective. There are so many ways to teach phonics in a multi-sensory way and it can make such an impact on your students, I thought I would share some of the things I have tried, some tried and true strategies, and a couple new ideas with you. Multi-Sensory Phonics Activities The definition of multi-sensory activities from the International Dyslexia Association: "Multisensory teaching is simultaneously visual, auditory, and kinesthetic-tactile to enhance memory and learning. I have a great deal of suggestions for you of activities and materials that incorporate the kinesthetic into teaching phonics and phonemic awareness. Playdoh: Roll the letters to make words but you can also flatten Play Doh into pancake-type pieces and "carve" the letters in them. Foam Alphabet Stamps: alone or dip in paint

Magic Spoons Why hello there my fellow blogger buddies! Were you wondering if I fell off the face of the Earth? If I did not, in fact, survive the madness of the holiday season? Not only am I back, but I have a great little somethin' to share! So this little phonemic awareness activity is called Magic Spoons. When my teacher friends were sharing this idea with me, I immediately envisioned shiny, glittering, golden spoons that were oh-so-magical. Anywho, I found these packs of golden spoons at Party City for cheap (AND was able to walk out of there with ONLY the spoons - yay for self control!). Next, I wrote on my spoons. Finally, I created three sheets to use with my magic spoons. For a PDF file of these three sheets, click on the image below. But wait, there's more! Anyway, I would love to hear about if and how you use Magic Spoons in YOUR classroom! Happy teaching this week! Lindsay
