The intention of the SGM® App is to help children think, communicate and learn. Since 1991, millions of children worldwide have benefited from using the colorful, patented icons of the Story Grammar Marker® (SGM®), a research-based tool for helping children with telling and retelling stories, comprehension, writing, reading comprehension and social communication. Now, the SGM® has come to life in the form of an App with exciting animation and engaging features that allow kids to see, listen, touch, move and interact with the icons to tell create a story!
Teachers, speech language pathologists, reading specialists, literacy coaches and parents can use this App with kids to help them “Become a Star Reporter” and create & tell their story or re-tell something they have read, seen or experienced. This app will help children to organize their thoughts for expressing or writing. It can help them with critical thinking and problem solving skills as well as to make connections among texts, themselves and the world around them.
The icons in this App are designed to “free up” working memory by giving kids a visual representation of the parts of a story that they can see, touch and move! They can type, draw, import images or import pictures from the camera roll to create a unique story or to retell a story from a book, show or movie. After creating each story, they can use the SGM® to assist them in telling their story and recording it. They can then become the SGM® Star Reporter and hear themselves telling their story! Each story can be saved and/or emailed to parents/teachers/specialists to monitor progress.
The Story Grammar Marker® can be used to support Common Core State Standards. This app is fun and engaging — and the methodology is research-based! Enjoy!
The East Meets West™ Quick Start includes Volumes I & II of East Meets West and a Teacher Story Grammar Marker® manipulative. East Meets West I & II are guides for the implementation of evidence-based clinical intervention for students who have language and reading disabilities. The authors, Maryellen Rooney Moreau, MEd, CCC-SLP, of MindWing Concepts and Judy K. Montgomery, PhD, CCC-SLP, of Chapman University, took 23 picture story books and analyzed each book for theme, narrative structure, expository text features, phonological sensitivity skills, vocabulary and aspects of cultural influence. Each book or author is on the recommended lists for California or Massachusetts, hence the title, East Meets West™. East Meets West™ guides educators through aural/oral activities using quality children’s literature as a base and by...
“Books can be created in many ways. These books came to life when we, two speech-language pathologists (Judy from California and Maryellen from Massachusetts), met one another in Dallas, Texas. We both look out onto different oceans at home, yet surprisingly we had many common experiences. Sitting on a pair of rocking chairs on a wooden porch at the end of a long day, we began talking. We talked about books, communication, language and literacy. That conversation quickly brought to light our mutual LOVE for helping children, and the educators who touch their lives. Here we were, “smack dab” in the middle of the country discovering our ideas and passion for education were merging with amazing speed and energy--just like a cross country highway! At the same time, each of our states was launching a huge reading initiative, and we knew we had a part to play in it. We were in the middle of the country and we were linking East and West. A book was born. We hope our passion helps you further yours.” Judy K. Montgomery’s comment about the East Meets West™ series
