  4. Four strategies that can be used to encourage oral communication development for Birth-Pre-K students with exceptionalities; 2 for children with disabilities and 2 for children with giftedness. Make sure to include both a home strategy and a classroom strategy for children with disabilities and for children with giftedness.

ECS 570 Topic 6 Effects of Oral Language

Oral language forms the foundation of reading comprehension and affects our understanding of the symbol systems that are used for reading and writing. Teachers have opportunities to promote reading and writing through various activities that involve oral language such as group activities that engage students in conversations about what they read and write.

Review the following case study to inform the assignment below:

Student: Raymond

Age: 6.1

Grade: K

Raymond is having difficulty mastering basic reading skills and his teacher is concerned. Most of the students are able to rhyme CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) words. However, Raymond is having difficulty identifying rhyming words. He can match all upper and lower case letters and can identify all upper case letters. Raymond has trouble with lower case letters, he mixes up /b/ and /d/, /g/ and /j/, /m/ and /n/, and /p/ and /q/.

His teacher is also concerned about Raymond’s comprehension skills. He enjoys listening to stories and is able to identify the characters and setting of the story. He is able to identify what happened at the beginning and at the end of the story, but has difficulty sequencing the middle of a story.

His teacher has spoken with his parents about the possible need for additional support and his parents have agreed to help at home with any activity the teacher sends home. The following are goals for Raymond to achieve:

  • Given a list of CVC words, Raymond will match the rhyming words.
  • Given a CVC word, Raymond will produce rhyming words.
  • Identify lower case letters.
  • After listening to a story, Raymond will identify the main ideas.
  • After listening to a story, Raymond will sequence three or four events.
