The Singing Sound

Submitted by megan.oropeza on Sat, 02/17/2024 - 11:06

Now that all of our kindergarteners have been screened for speech sound errors and we have collaborated with their teachers, we have begun kinder "group lessons!" In these lessons that we lead in each of our kindergarten classes, we review a commonly missed sound from the screenings and teach each student how to articulate it. Each student gets to participate in a game where they practice saying a word with the target sound as well. This week, we taught the "singing sound" or L. Our kindergarteners are so bright and picked this up quickly! Way to go, kinder!!

A Game with A Twist

Submitted by megan.oropeza on Sat, 02/17/2024 - 10:47

4th Graders have been practicing parts of speech by playing a fun new twist on the game Spoons! They pass around cards trying to find a match of words that either sound the same but are spelled differently, or are spelled the same and have multiple meanings. Combining learning and fun has been a big hit in all of the classes!

2nd grade has been working on using our vocabulary words! To help with this students created their own vocabulary chart that highlights the word so they can use it during lessons! They are doing so well with taking ownership of their learning!
