    Dear Families, 

    I hope everyone is well and staying safe during our current global health crisis. I know that I would much rather be in school meeting with all of my students face to face in my speech room. Unfortunately that is not the way the 2020-21 school year will start. Our virtual start to the school year will be an exciting new adventure for us all! I am very excited to be meeting with all of my students for speech/language therapy through Google Meet at the start of the school year. I have spent the last few months learning new technology and taking classes about teletherapy.  I have so many  ideas to share with my students when we are together again. I am here to help! Just send me an email and I will get back to you within a few hours typically. You can reach me at wannernw@staffordschools.net.

    Take care of yourselves.

  • How can you help at home?

    I am in the process of putting together some resources that  you can share with your child at home as we spend the next few weeks away from our school. 

    Magazines:

    Time for Kids digital library will be free for the rest of the school year. You select the target grade level. This is a great way to work on vocabulary, reading, auditory comprehension (if you read to your child), retell of key details, making predictions and answering "wh" questions.

     Ranger Rick Digital Magazine and Activities. This is another great magazine   from the National Wildlife Federationthat gives plenty of opportunities for you and your child to practice reading, improving  reading or oral comprehension, retelling key details, answering questions, and expanding vocabulary.
