Speaker Notes to Accompany“Activities to Develop Language, LiteracyAnd Communication Skills”Tenise WardAssignment 5AGrand Canyon University
Title Slide– Self explanatorySlide One (Overview)– Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening. This presentation is going to focus on at-home activities that parents can do with their children to strengthen their reading, writing and speaking skills. This slide gives an overview of what will be covered – reading activities, writing activities and a speaking activity. The presentation will conclude with a summary of whatwas covered. Slide Two (Parents)– I would like to begin by stressing how important it is for the parents to be involved with their children’s learning experience. As the slides says, you are the first and most important teacher for your children. Parents and teachers need to work together to provide the best educational experience for the children. Parents are the classroom instructors at home. Slide Three (At-Home Activities)– We all realize there are many facets to education, but this presentation will only focus on reading, writing, and speaking. With each activity will be considerations for struggling children, above grade level children, children with developmental delays, and gifted and talented children. There are 30 students in this class with a wide variety of talents or challenges. You can make the “impossible” possible. Some of the students are on Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) or have a 504 Plan. Which leads me to my next slide. Slide Four (Special Considerations)– I show you this slide to allow you to view some distinct characteristics of learners with disabilities and learners that are gifted and talented. Please take a moment to read it. It is important to recognize these characteristics and capabilities and plan for remediation or enrichment to the at-home activity. If anyone has any questions I will be happy to go into more detail. Slide Five (Reading Activity)– The first activity I will cover will be a reading activity - reading“The Jacket I Wear in the Snow” to your child. You can track from left to right with finger the words of the books; discuss the weather, the snow and the clothes that are worn; and help your child to read the book with you.
