This is the Picture Communication Symbol (PCS) version of this resource.
5 Brave Firefighters is a shorter version of an earlier title (10 Brave Firefighters). This shorter version is designed to better address the needs of a smaller class or classes where the children are cognitively young.
In general, this PowerPoint resource addresses literacy, language and AAC (symbol-supported versions) using interactive animations and sound effects. More specifically, it targets colors (each firefighter has colored socks), counting/numbers (1 to 5) and the concept of down (they slide down a pole).
This PowerPoint resource can be displayed on the ‘big screen’ (interactive whiteboard, large screen TV using Apple TV with an iPad) or the ‘small screen’ (computer monitor, iPad). Stars throughout the text signal the presence of an animation supporting the text just read.
To heighten engagement, consider personalizing this resource with the photo faces of your students! To learn how visit the Animated Step-by-Steps™ blog. http://bit.ly/personalizing http://bit.ly/PhotoFaces
