Kindergarten and 1st grade plan:
Captions can provide struggling readers with additional print exposure, improving foundational reading skills.
In a typical classroom, a teacher may find many students who are struggling readers, whether they are beginning readers, students with language-based learning disabilities, or English Language Learners (ELLs). One motivating, engaging, and inexpensive way to help build the foundational reading skills of students is through the use of closed-captioned and subtitled television shows and movies.
These supports can help boost foundational reading skills, such as phonics, word recognition, and fluency, for a number of students. Given the wide (and inexpensive) availability of captioned and subtitled media on broadcast television, on DVDs, and online, it can be a valuable addition to your teaching of diverse learners.
-Thank you Ms. Kendra Waring for sharing this valuable tip! Thank you Dr. Richardson for providing the awesome write-up! Teachers, if you have any "tidbits" that you would like to share with everyone, please send it to Ms. Gore so that it can be added to the "Friday ROAR!" We learn best from each other.
100th Day of School!
As you know, our days were thrown off due to the days missed during the floods. February 5th is the 100th day. Please plan your 100th day activities for this date.
