While I'm still teaching at the same school, this year I'll be taking on some different roles. I am going to be working with kindergarteners for part of the day exclusively on language/reading skills and speech is tied directly to reading abilities. One of the most common symptoms of potential reading difficulties in preschoolers is the inability to come up with specific vocabulary for various items, as well as a delay in speech pattern development. I've put this here as an easy reference. Enjoy!
I hope to be updating this on a more regular basis with information about what I'm doing with these 5 and 6 yr olds in the environment.
