Welcome to Ms. Jill's Speech Class
I am so excited to be working with your preschooler! I love working in preschool because the children are full of energy and ready to grow in so many ways. I love seeing the progress they make week to week.
You will be receiving letters from me on themes and sounds we are working on as a class. I will also send home "homework," just so you know what I am focusing on with your child. I will not send home papers until your child is able to make the targeted sound correctly some of the time. I do not require you to return the homework, and please don't get anxious about completing it. Most of the time, the children enjoy having homework to do just like their older siblings, but sometimes the children do not! I just ask that if your child has a target sound, give him/her a lot of great modeling. Never push your child if a sound or language concept is difficult, and always have fun!! If you only have a few minutes to work with your child, the best thing you can do is DEAR: Drop Everything and Read!!
The best way to reach me is through email since I travel between two schools. If your child also sees a private speech therapist, feel free to share my contact information.
