This project will provide additional Orff Instruments (xylophones, met allophones) and guitars for T. L. E. School students. With the integration of the additional fourth and fifth grade students from the Rideout School the instructional needs of the forth and fifth grade students are currently not being met. The addition of these instruments will shorten the waiting time to use these instruments and provide a longer hands-on learning experience and less down time.
This project provides additional phonemic awareness practice for K - 3 students targeted as "at-risk" for difficulty in learning to read. It entails working on the Earobics computer program under the supervision of the speech pathologist. Both regular and special education students will use the program.
