ABOUT THIS RESOURCE
The Ready-to-Use Learning Disabilities Activities Kit is designed to help regular and special teacher of elementary children in the areas of reading, language arts, and math. It gives the busy teacher over 200 reproducible activities for quickly and effectively meeting the needs of students who have a wide range of functional levels.
The materials in the Kit are not intended to be a comprehensive program but rather a supplement to the materials and course of study recommended by your district. For example, obviously the math materials are limited to those that develop critical thinking by helping students visualize what words and numbers mean.
The activities are presented by approximate grade level, kindergarten to 2.9, but you will find yourself moving back and forth form unit to unit as you seek to meet each student's needs: · Unit One, "Pre-Academics for Young Learning Disabled Students," provides activities appropriate for Head Start and kindergarten-aged children whose learning disabilities render them not yet ready for beginning academics. · Unit Two, "Beginning Academics," presents activities appropriate for children who are functioning at grades 1.0 to 1.9. · Unit Three, "Moving 'Write' Along," offers activities for children who are functioning in the 2.0 to 2.9 range.
While these materials were created for use with learning disabled children, they may be used with youngsters in the general school population as well. You could, for example, use the activities as homework for regular class students, giving pre-academics to beginning first graders, first-grade materials as homework for second graders, and so on.
The activities at each level are preceded by a general discussion of the learning objectives and prerequisites at that level and specific suggestions for using each of the activities that follow.
I hope that you find the Ready-to-Use Learning Disabilities Activities Kit a valuable tool for working with your students. Joan M. Harwell
