Help KDP fund a Classroom Teacher Grant for “Preschool Special Education Home Visit Early Language and Literacy Activity Bags”, a Student Outreach Support project by Rachel Sargeant. She teaches Presschool and has 7 years of teaching experience.
Application for Funding:
Activity bags will extend learning into the home. Each week I work with my 2 year old special education students in my classroom and in their home as well as places in the community.
All of my students are working on building their engagement with the activities and also their speech and language goals. I work directly with the families to help coach them on how to create opportunities to work in the home on their child’s goals.
I am planning seasonal activity bags that will rotate with all of the families and provide learning opportunities to have materials that they might not have access to.
I create an activity page which gives examples of how to use the activity materials to encourage language and different ways the families can ask the students questions, build their language, and build their child’s play skills and interaction.
How the $150 would be spent:
The money will be spent on creating materials such as miniature items that are associated with books, laminated pictures that can be used with finger puppets or a board to tell nursery rhymes, and felt character pieces to go on finger puppet gloves. These materials will help make the experience of reading more interactive and engaging for the young students and will be designed for easy use by the families.
