Struggling readers? Dyslexic kiddos? English Language Learners?
Trying to teach students to differentiate between speed and volume in listening exercises? Go Visual!
I have struggled to get students to utilize word walls and anchor charts; this is a visual representation of musical dynamic vocabulary using a sound board volume slider. As a visual learner, I've always imagined concepts as pictures, and this has really helped my students use content vocabulary to describe what they hear with accuracy.
All my anchor charts use OpenDyslexic3 font (https://www.opendyslexic.org/).
This is formatted for the low-budget classroom (black and white/tiled posters from letter size paper). To print as a make-your-own poster, tile to 400% (4x4 landscape). To fit standard laminators, laminate in two sections - the main slider visual as a 3x4 landscape poster, and the "Crescendo/Decrescendo" wedges as a 1x4 poster.
