A.T.TIPSCAST #108: A Tour of Pre-K Stations

Download the audio directly- Episode #108: A Tour of Pre-K Stations

Episode Overview-

Episode #108 features my 4 year old daughter taking listeners on a tour of her pre-kindergarten program describing aspects of stations including the Discovery Area, the Music Area, the Dramatic Play Area, the Puzzle Area, the Building Center, the Sensory Table, and the Book Corner.

A.T.TIPS in this Episode -

A.T.TIP #307 – Peace Object

Students touch or hold an object together as they discuss their differences as a reminder that even though they had an argument, there can be a peaceful resolution.

A.T.TIP #308 – Speaker Object

A student touches or holds an object to indicate he or she is speaking. This object also serves as a visual reminder to the listener to be respectful to the one who is talking.

A.T.TIP #309 – Labeling Stations

Placing a visual representation with corresponding text at each station.

A.T.TIP #310 – Digital Pictures of Students to Represent Location

Students move visuals of themselves and place them at the station to indicate where they plan to spend their time. When all of the spaces on the visual chart are filled no other students may join in that area. The visual representation of individualized location tends to decrease roaming.

A.T.TIP #311 – Defining a Space

Tape can be used to define an area to provide students with a visual cue to help them understand and respect physical boundaries.

Hey everyone,
Episode #5 is up for your listening pleasure. Episode #5 briefly explains the my take on the convergence of the educational concepts of Universal Design for Learning, Least Restrictive Environment, and Differentiating Instruction using Assistive Technology.  I also explain that future episodes will have less me talking about the principles of AT practice in public schools in favor of trying to fit in two tips per episode.  Please let me know what you think about the format change.  Good thing or bad thing for the show, what’s your take? 

The tip for this week’s episode is on “Pacing Boards”.  Pacing Boards are simply circles used to facilitate language development.  You can watch a short movie on Pacing Boards here : Keeping Pace
