Teaching Writing to Students with Special Needs written by: This series goes through the five stages of the writing process to help children with learning disabilities or other special needs feel comfortable writing. Writing always came easy to me. I brought grades up in college from a "C" to an "A" because of this gift.
Oral Vocabulary When your child reads, he or she looks at the written words on a page and decides what spoken words the written words represent. The collection of spoken words that a child understands is usually called his or her oral vocabulary.
There are many activities that support oral vocabulary development in ABCmouse.
Phonemic Awareness The letters of the alphabet represent the sounds that make up spoken words. In order to read, your child needs to be able to identify those sounds. For example, what are the beginning, middle, and ending sounds of the word dog?
Your child might need to practice listening to sounds in words in order to answer questions like these. Reading experts call the ability to identify the separate sounds in spoken words phonemic awareness. For many children, practicing the ability to recognize sounds in words can make a big difference in how fast they learn to read.
The Alphabet Research indicates that learning the names of letters leads to more rapid and accurate learning of phonics.
This is reflected in the earlier levels of ABCmouse.This lends itself to several ideas for simple toddler pre writing activities! More Ideas: First of all, literally ANY of the figures from the My Busy Books Series would be fun to play with in a salt tray.
My top picks for this kind of activity would be Frozen and Thomas the Train.
