• Hello Sayen Speech Students!! Welcome to week 9 of remote learning!!

    Week of May 18, 2020

    ****IMPORTANT FOR ALL PARENTS*****

    Just a reminder that remote learning will not occur on Friday, May 22 and Monday, May 25 in observance of Memorial Day!

    As most of you have heard the district has changed the remote learning platform to Google Meet.  I will continue to send the Meet invites at the start of each of our sessions just as we did with Zoom.  Any questions or concers please do not hesitate to reach out to me!! Thank you to all the families that are being flexible and supportive of your child's speech and language needs during this ever evolving time.  I love that I get to see your children and continue to work with them despite these challenges. I will continue to reach out to those families that I haven't been able to reach as of this time to get your student scheduled!!  

    ESLS (articulation only) Families: I am in the process of scheduling annual reviews which will take place remotely via the Zoom platform.  Look out for an email in the next week regarding scheduling.

    ****Mrs. Breuer's and Mrs. Beck's classes*** Parents you should have received an email to join our SeeSaw class.  This is an app that will allow me to communicate directly with you and provide individualized therapy activities for your children.  If you have any difficulty joining or have any questions please send me an email!

    ****Articulation only students****Parents you should have received and email to join our SeeSaw Class.  This is an app that will allow me to post activities to promote practice of your child's speech goals.  Ifyou have any difficulty joining or have any questions please reach out!

    Packets were sent home on Friday for you to continue to practice your speech and language skills at home.  There will be new packets made and left for pick up at Sayen on today (3/24/20) as well as posted on the website for continued practice during our time apart. 

    Speech Only Students (Articulation/Fluency): Please continue to practice using the articulation calendars.  This should take about 5 minutes to complete.  Additionally, please click on the "Remote Learning Speech Therapy" tab and you will find a Google Folder for "Articulation".  Click on this folder and you will see files for individual speech sounds.  CLick on the file for your target sound and practice the word lists using your best speech with a partner.  

    Speech and Languge Students (MD classes): Parents...a letter and a packet were sent home with each student on Friday 3/13/20.  These activities were selected to focus on vocabulary related to our new season, Spring! Take about 20 minutes each day to focus on language skills.  There are vocabulary cards that can be colored or colored and cut out.  You can do a matching game, work on describing the pictures, or work on naming the pictures.  See the worksheet with ideas on how to incorporate language into play, games, and activities around the house!  Under the "Remote Learning Speech Therapy" tab there are additional language activities.

    I will be available each day via email for questions and suggestions as needed!  If you feel that you need more challenging work or you would like additional activities please do not hesitate to contact me: abucchere@hamilton.k12.nj.us
