Focus on Five: Incorporating AAC

5. Math

Incorporating AAC during Math Meeting is an easy way to teach students where certain categories on their device are as well as establish a routine. I use Math Meeting time as time to focus on students finding weather, date, time, money, shapes in their devices. Because of the consistent routine of Math Meeting, my students have been able to navigate to the correct page independently. Math Meeting also allows the opportunity for students to build on the vocabulary or other concepts that they have learned about. For example, since my students are able to navigate to the weather page with minimal prompts, I have been able to introduce the sentence starter “The weather is…”.  I have found that by focusing on identifying how to locate certain vocabulary or categories, helps students to become more engaged and motivated during Math Meeting.
