Here is an example to the right from a model student who followed directions very well!
In one first grade classroom, I work with sweet little girl with a language impairment, so I checked out her tree pictured below.
|Maybe needs a little intervention?|
She obviously tried very hard, but seemed to not understand that she needed to form the letters into 'words'. I think she forgot what the word 'word' meant. (I'm also not sure she knows what a coconut tree is, but I let that one go for now). This was all completed before I came into the room.

I'm always amazed by the impact of a language impairment on a seemingly simple craft project.
Here is a video of students using the Magnetic Letters app at Frank Porter Graham Elementary in Chapel Hill. You can see this app has potential for many uses, and the kids love it. It's well worth the price-- $1.99
I loved the clip. Intentional and purposeful. The teacher demonstrated and practiced the app with names first. Thanks for the post....I am a preschool teacher. I have a Preschool PLC that meets once a month, I plan to share this!ReplyDelete
