A Material that Combines Sentence Building with a Sensory Benefit!

A Material that Combines Sentence Building with a Sensory Benefit!

I’m the kind of person who loves to multitaskboth at home and at work.  It’s the only way I can get everything done!!!  I’m sure I’m not alone in that so I’m guessing that you’re going to love today’s video.

You will see that this material allows students to take advantage of more than one thing at a time.

Take a look!

We have so many students in our schools that are just emerging with their language skillsthat Sentence Twists really caught my attention!  I’m always telling staff to scaffold for studentswhen they show us/ communicate to us that they need more help.  Visual and tactile feedback can really help to show students what we expect.

Think about this, although this product is not terribly expensive at $24.99 I’m thinking it wouldn’t be hard to duplicate this in a DIY project.  You wouldn’t have to be tied to just the words on the commercial material, you could design your own.  Better yet, have your students design their own sentence twistsand see if you get more sentence length than you ever thought possible.

This year, our pre-post language samples were AMAZING!  One of our biggest successes is a little guy who came to us with two words in August, 2017.  He now has a MLU of 1.97!!!  From two words to almost two word utterances every time he speaks is significant! 

If you are already out of school, enjoy your summer and rest up! If you are a business owner, I’m hoping some of my summer ideas inspire youin your summer services and if you are a parent, I hope I’ve given you some things to try with that special child in your life as you enjoy the warm weather!

If you are changing jobs, please send me your new e-mail addressso that you won’t miss out on any upcoming blogs and videos!

You take care and I’ll see you next time!
