Hello and welcome to Twin Speech! We are happy to share our latest early intervention resource with you today.
In this download, you will find 5 mini-books that can be put together to teach and to practice first words with your early intervention caseload. These books will be a wonderful resource for teaching children with limited speech the first most functional words that they should learn to say or sign in order to communicate their needs and wants. They will get to practice the first sound that the word makes after looking at the speech sound models, practice real sign language and the sign for the targeted word after seeing a child in a real picture signing the word, and they will get to see a targeted word shown in a colorful picture. All of this is presented in a cute and useful mini-book that can be printed out and used again and again!
The books are super cute and functional! Again, here is some of what is offered in each book and please look at the preview to take a closer look too.
A) First sound/letter of the word in American Sign.
B) Visual and written cues of the first sound of each word.
C) Illustrated and detailed description on how to produce the sign of each word.
D) A cute and colorful picture showing the sign in action.
And here are the functional word targets contained in each book:
Book 1. More, Want, Help and Eat
Book 2. Cookie, Cheese, Milk and Banana
Book 3. Daddy, Mommy, Cat and Dog
Book 4. Ball, Bubble, Play and Book
Book 5. In, On, Off and Down
We have a great tool to accompany these mini-books. They are coloring pages that can be provided for further discussion and practice of the targeted words listed above. The child colors the black-lined pages showing the targeted sign and while they have fun and are busy coloring, they can hear and see the signs demonstrated and discussed. They are a great homework assignment too! Check out this product with this link and also see a FREE page in the preview for this product (above):
