Back to School!
I am enjoying being back at school with my speech and language students. I feel like I have some really challenging activities for them to do. I love giving them activities to participate in that make them think and problem solve. Today we read a short paragraph describing a football. They got all of the attention to detail questions right but only one of them could tell me that it was a football. It seems like an easy thing, but sometimes what you think should be obvious isn't. When I am reading with one of the boys I always ask them questions about the story or about a word that I am not sure they know. Reading to your child should be enjoyable, but I love when I feel like it was a teachable moment!
