I know many of you have started your school year already. I still have another week before staff are due back at my school. However, I have been doing some preparation. We have a back to school night for students and parents before the official first day of school. I like to have at least a bulletin board up to make the room more welcoming. Every year I review the process of communication and what it takes to communicate with my speech students. We talk about listening, speaking clearly and visual cues such as body language. I think I’ll be able to use this bulletin board as a visual support. I’ve decided to use a set of monkeys representing See no, Hear no and Speak no Evil since they represent those senses. I downloaded a coloring page of the monkeys from microsoft clip art and used it as a template. I will put the colored versions up on the Board with the heading of this post when I get back to my room. I will put a picture up of the completed board when I get it put up. I updated the picture as promised.
