When: December 1, 2015, 8:30 - 3:30
Where: North County Regional Education Center
255 Pico Avenue, San Marcos, CA 92069
Who: Pre-k and early elementary teachers of students with moderate/severe disabilities
The prospect of teaching students with significant disabilities to begin to read with comprehension and begin to write generatively can
seem overwhelming. This presentation will cover: assessment for students who are difficult to assess, shared reading (developing a love
of reading, and supporting language through reading), emergent writing (beginning to write with symbols, words, and the alphabet), self selected
story listening (listening to and interacting with a range of engaging books across a range of genre), alphabet interaction and
phonemic awareness (understanding spoken language at the word, syllable, and letter level). Throughout the day, you will see student
samples, videos, and creative use of apps.
Describe 3 assessment tools that can be used for students who are difficult to assess with standard tools
Identify at least 2 activities to support: Shared reading, emergent writing, self-selected story listening, alphabet learning, and phonemic
Describe at least 3 apps, and tell how you would use them interactively to support literacy learning.
