Making Progress!

Since my kids have been really struggling on vowel sounds, I have been searching and searching for fun and different things to help! Thank goodness I found this great song!


You have to watch it! My kids love it and sing it all the time!

Beyond just teaching them vowel sounds, I think it really helped one of my students take a huge step. This year, I have a student who is a selective mute. He has been at this school for 3 years and has not spoken a word to anyone at school. Not one word. He is also extremely reserved and does not react to anything. I have been trying to make him feel super comfortable and hoping that we can make some progress. Well...this song worked magic. As soon as I put it on, he got up and started dancing like crazy! I was so excited! Maybe a sign of more good things to come?!
