Developed by Anne Gardner, SLP & Margaret Chesterman, SLP for BCACCS
The Moe the Mouse® Speech and Language Development Program consists of two main components:
Moe the Mouse® Curriculum Box is an innovative early speech and language resource that uses Aboriginal toys and stories to enhance language development in children ages 3–5. The activities and materials in the curriculum box help parents and educators provide opportunities for children to practise language skills in natural settings. Doing these activities helps children develop: social language use, comprehension of spoken words, vocabulary, discrimination of speech sounds, ability to pronounce speech sounds, knowledge of preposition words (e.g. above, beside), and the ability to express feelings and ideas. These activities become part of the regular early learning and child care program curriculum and do not require specialized clinicians nor do they need to take place in clinical settings.
Making the Most of Moe: A Workshop for Parents and Early Childhood Educators was developed and is owned by Anne Gardner and Margaret Chesterman. Anne and Margaret are Speech-Language Pathologists who developed the Moe the Mouse® Speech and Language Curriculum Box for the BC Aboriginal Child Care Society (BCACCS). These workshops are scheduled by BCACCS and presented throughout British Columbia. They are facilitated by either Anne or Margaret. Workshops are approximately five hours long, and are designed for early childhood educators, parents and others involved with young children. Audio-visual and printed materials are used to train people how to use the Moe the Mouse® Speech and Language Curriculum Box.
Moe the Mouse® FELT STORY
Moe the Mouse® is also available as a felt story. Meet felt versions of Moe and his 15 animal friends! The materials in the Felt Story Version of the Box will allow implementation of a substantial portion but not the entire Moe the Mouse® curriculum.
