Ranch Elementary’s Program for Outstanding Preschool Students

The peer models are important to the program as they model appropriate behavior and language to the other students.

Another unique aspect of the program is the way the speech language therapy is provided. The Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) works within the classroom two full days providing therapy. The therapists help emphasize learning certain phonological sounds and concepts each month during circle called “sound group.”

Each week during sound group, they provide a variety of repetitive books and hands-on activities, as well as integrating specific goals into other learning opportunities when applicable throughout each day.

The fun activities introduced in sound group help develop language, comprehension and stimulate phonemic awareness.

This is one sure way of getting children ready for reading. The POPS program is lucky to have these professionals as part of the POPS team.
