Minspeak E-Newsletter, Issue 84

Send to Friend
October 30, 2013
  • I Have A Question: "How can I submit something to the Minspeak website"?  If you have intervention plans or teaching materials, we welcome to you submit your materials for posting at the Minspeak website.
  • Core in the Classroom: Use Geometry and Parts of a Circle to learn simple geometry concepts and express them using core vocabulary.
  • The Pixon Project: Pixons can be used as teaching materials for picturing the metaphors behind Unity® icon sequences.  The word for this week is "again." Compare the Pixon for again to the Unity®84 icon sequence  of again. Teach the meaning of the words using props, such a kitchen pot and spoon.  Stir it again and again and again.
  • Spotlight: Thank you Laila from Illinois for reminding people of additional AAC resources that include Minspeak materials. "I've been using materials from Gail Van Tatenhove's website for years.  The website is great and all the free materials, workshop handouts, and other resources are fantastic!".
  • PALSS:  Go to the Minspeak website for the 2013- 2014 Pittsburgh AAC Language Seminar Series schedule and registration materials. Spots are filling up quickly!
