Auditory/Oral students apply learning through storytelling

AO Students Using a theme-based learning approach to I.E.P. goals, Catherine Glommen's class at the Auditory/Oral Pre-K program is applying a new twist to classic children's stories. Combining listening and speaking skills with a dash of theater, her 3 and 4 year old students with significant hearing loss have been engaged in learning by practicing their skills through acting out the 3 Little Pigs. The students love making props and acting out the story themes. Earlier in the year, her class also acted out Goldilocks and the 3 Bears.

The Auditory/Oral Pre-K program is based in Stillwater and houses three classrooms, two therapy rooms, two deaf/hard of hearing teachers, a speech/language pathologist and an early childhood special education teacher.
