Read Aloud + “Sticky Notes” = More Individualized Language Training

In public school special education classrooms, it can be difficult to meet the language needs of all students during a group read aloud. Here’s a great idea that can help to make differentiating instruction during reading a little easier for the teacher! List what you would like students to request, label, identify, respond to, etc. for each page of the book on a “sticky note”. Include student initials for specific targets if necessary. Place the “sticky notes” on the back cover of the book in rows and in page number order. The “sticky notes” provide a quick and extremely accessible reminder of specific language targets….and the teacher is the only one who can see them!
