EZC Readers – Great for tracking and staying on focus.
Wikki Stix are great to use to underline or circle words, form letters… Thanks to the people at http://www.wikkistix.com, if you attend any of my presentations with the Bureau of Education and Research, you will receive a sample.
Scholastic’s Book is full of Graphic Organizers in varying levels. Help the brain to make those connections!
Graphic Organizers for three different levels!
Thank You, Mr. Falker – A great book about a student who is struggling… Author shares her own struggles in learning to read.
Use highlighting tape, highlighters, post-its, flags, color coding dots… simple accommodations can sometimes make a huge difference.
Use color paper, story boards, index cards, paper strips, dry erase boards, and transparencies instead of always paper/pencil.
Post it notes are another alternative to paper/pencil. (Nick didn’t like to write on regular notebook paper, but accomplished the task of beginning, middle, and end of the reading passage by using Post-it Notes instead.)
Post it Notes
This 8-Point Storyboard is another alternative to regular paper/pencil writing, where assignments are written in 8 boxes instead of regular notebook paper. Defined smaller space is a great accommodation for students who don’t like to write. It can easily be a 4-Point Storyboard, or a 6-Point Storyboard… it’s all in the fold of the paper. Using color paper is even better.
