Each week I lead a phonemic awareness lesson for preschoolers with special needs. To maintain consistency, we have the same weekly schedule: a “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom” tree to introduce the letter sound, exposure to the sound through a book, interactive hide ‘n’ seek activity, and a craft or baking activity to close. For our /m/ lesson, the students made “moonscopes” using toilet paper rolls, tissue paper and shape cutouts (circle and star) after we read “Mooncake.” These lessons not only target letter sound knowledge, but also provide opportunities to build vocabulary, follow directions, model social language and work on functional communication skills. Not to mention, the kids love it!
About me: I have been a speech-language pathologist for four years in the preschool program for Cobb County (Georgia) Schools. I also work as contract therapist for Building Blocks Pediatrics in Marietta. I received my bachelor’s degree at the University of Georgia and my master’s at Florida State University. I enjoy my off time with my husband and two dogs.
