I found the traditional “big 5” does not work unless you take a back door approach...make sense?
Reiné Loebs
01:02:09
you are correct! it is speech and language!
Dana Evans
01:03:19
See it now.
Amy Jo Meiners
01:05:34
Do your students need more language comprehension or word recognition?

Starting my second year in AK as an AmeriCorps! We discussed our students (pre k and k) struggled most with letter identification and noticing individual sounds in words

Tumblebooks through ASL has that
Linda Klein - Anchorage Public Library

If your library has access to something like Tumblebooks, they have a lot of read along books

It’s so simple, but as a first year teacher, when I started using sentence stems it was a game-changer
Yocasta
01:23:30
We used to had ELD
Dana Evans

I love sentence stems!
Yocasta
01:24:07

Jeff Smith - SERRC & R16CC - Juneau
01:24:43
Visual support is so important…like Lauren’s question pointed out
Amy Jo Meiners
01:25:03
What are your strategies for teaching language?
Jeff Smith - SERRC & R16CC - Juneau
01:36:18
Thanks Kelley. I’m still pondering that social distance, in-person turn and talk. Anyone have ideas or strategies you’re using?
Dana Evans
01:37:45
@Jeff: I heard a teacher share that she has students in 1st grade “turn and talk” to their stuffed animal. I thought that was a great idea.
Jeff Smith - SERRC & R16CC - Juneau
01:38:06
Nice!
Lesa Meath
01:39:14
Jamboard is great and have also seen Ss writing on whiteboards and holding up to screen
Yocasta
01:39:36
they use their whiteboards to write
Yocasta
01:39:44
as well as in Nearpod
Yocasta
01:39:53
we also use Seesaw
Lesa Meath
01:40:22
Can’t assume there is always an available adult present
Yocasta
01:40:25
RATZkids for reading as well as Epic
Emily Snyder
01:40:26
I also use physical white boards! They have the lines for young writers on them
Dale
01:40:45
2 screens will do in a zoom , one screen for the student and one for the paper while the student is writing
Jeff Smith - SERRC & R16CC - Juneau

Thanks for sharing Emily
Jeff Smith - SERRC & R16CC - Juneau
01:43:59
Agreed @Bernie. I’ve been in some meetings with district folks looking for ways to spend Title money. Advocate if you don’t have manipulative for your kiddos!
Kelley Harvey
01:45:57
Heggerty Phonemic Awareness is a GREAT curriculum for teaching PA and the hand motions are great! Equipped for Reading Success is great for older kids.
Jeff Smith - SERRC & R16CC - Juneau
01:46:17
Thanks Kelley
Lesa Meath
01:47:16
Thank you for making that clear
Amy Jo Meiners

manipultives- easy, getting into small group is difficult
Diana Brann
01:49:59
I’ve been using small group breakout rooms

Alicia Perez
01:50:18
small groups in. readout rooms, manipulative a sent in
Emily Snyder
01:50:25
I have a very small class size so I can use small groups easily and they are pretty good at picking up materials from the school
Alicia Perez
01:50:28
manipulatives sent in a monthly box
Beverly Colapietro
01:50:28
Last spring we were able to deliver manipulatives: whiteboards, letter tiles, packets of fluency materials.
Yocasta
01:52:01
sentence strips, white boards
Kelley Harvey
01:52:03
we send home learning bundles every 2 weeks so we can get things home that way
Kelley Harvey
01:52:23

Jeff Smith - SERRC & R16CC - Juneau
01:52:55

Lesa Meath
01:55:06
Just like in classroom - therapy balls to sit on, movement, pedal wheel under chair
Kelley Harvey
01:55:17

Dale
01:55:48
Zoom background can be change it helps :) to get their attention :)
Amy Jo Meiners
