What Does Better Hearing and Speech Mean to You? Worksheet

Last week an idea came to me at dinner - I wanted to know what better hearing and speech meant to my students. Immediately when I got home, I threw together a document for my students to answer that question through coloring and writing. Then, I posted their drawings and sentences outside my classroom so everyone could see what we do in speech! Here is what the entrance to my office looks like:

I posted the document at the end of the post, so feel free to use it with your students! In addition, click "Read More" to see my students' awesome art!

Here are my students' answers to the question "What does better hearing and speech mean to you?"
