I’ve recently added many new speech and language resources for you and your child, including New Categories titled: Basic Concepts, Vocabulary, and Wh-Questions. There are also a lot of new links under the Speech-Sound Practice and Reading/Books Categories. Many of the new links are also interactive!
Here’s a challenge for you: Find and click on one link on this blog that you have never explored before. Then add a comment stating the name of the link you chose to open!
Hello ECSE Families,
I am trying to continue to add links to the categories on the right hand side of this blog to help provide you with as many speech-language resources as possible during this time away from school. You will not automatically receive an email each time a new link is loaded, so please check in intermittently and scroll through to find new tools for you and your preschooler. We are in this together! -Ms. Shauna
I hope you are safe and well! I would love it if you would make a brief comment on this blog, so that I can confirm you were able to access it. You can simply click on the RED HEART to the left of the post to leave a comment. Be sure to scan through all of the links to the right side of the page to find communication-based resources that may be beneficial to you and your child. -Ms. Shauna
A little over a week ago, I never would have guessed that it would be the last time I would get to see the sweet faces of my preschoolers for several weeks. Looking back, I wish I could have given each child one more smile and a hug before leaving school (…or, I guess, a fist bump or wave). For now, I would like to share this blog as a resource for you and your child. Along the right side of this home page, you will see a list of the following categories: Activity Ideas, Community Activities/Events (obviously, there is a pause on this for now), Developmental Information, Reading/Books, Shopping Sites for Learning Toys, Sites for Parents, Sites for Students, and Visual Supports – Printables. Each category contains links to websites, articles, activities, and other supports that may help you engage in communication-rich, naturalistic activities with your child during this interim break from school. For preschoolers to have a robust communication environment, there does not have to be any “table-work” or “homework”. Toys and books are their tools, playtime/clean-up/mealtime/bathtime/etc are their lessons, your home and yard are their classrooms, and you are their teachers!
Hoping for your safety and health, Ms. Shauna
