Last week, we asked you to give us some questions we could toss to our spellers, and wow, did you come through with some great ones!
We selected a few and our spellers gave us some great feedback. We will be continuing this series, so if you do not see your question, it is in the docket for us to ask them. We will also be revisiting some of these questions in the near future, too. If there are any other questions you’d like to ask the spellers, please feel free to comment below!
What would your dream classroom look like?
-My ideal classroom has lots of stuff to aid my sensory needs. These of course mean things that help calm me down. It can be anything from stress balls to the word searches to the Paint by Stickers.
-A dream classroom always has good things to help student’s sensory that can prove to overload them. A stress ball is always helpful to help take their mind off all that is going around them.
What is one action step you can take towards achieving your goal? For the spellers who weren’t at the group or for those who would just like to switch their goal up, identify an area where you like to learn more about or a skill you’d like to work on. How can we as family members, friends, and communication partners help you?
-Dollar dollar bills. It is essential that support stretches across settings. In order for us to truly make changes we need the whole team on board. That looks different for everyone but it is critical. I take action everyday! It is simply hard to see. I take action within myself.
Do you think that Letterboard would benefit children, and if so, at what age would you begin introducing it to them? Would you like to eventually see Letterboard being taught in elementary schools?
Letterboard is used with children as young as 4 in other communities like GKTC in Virginia who we are fortunate to work with. It is greatly beneficial to start early on. I would love to see it used in schools but would hate to see the integrity of the method compromised.
