Product Description
Dirty and Clean “2 Words for 2 Weeks,” a series of instructional activities and suggestions for using target core vocabulary words with our students. Why "look" and "like"? These words are often motivating and fun for students because many activities can involve directing the actions of others, and expressing their opinions.

One of my worst teaching moments was when I grabbed a plate out of our class kitchen to find that it was filthy.  It was clear that it had been used, unwashed, and then still put away.  I soon realized that one of my sweet students (who work so hard to learn life skills such as this) did not know the seemingly simple difference between dirty and clean.  Just a few days before, I had assigned her the classroom chore of unloading and loading the dishwasher.  While I had taken the time to show her how to unload and load the dishes, I had just assumed she knew the difference between what was clean or not.  We all know what assuming does ;), don’t make the same mistake I did!   

This is part of a Growing BUNDLE, click here to check out the entire set

This packet is based on a selection of core vocabulary, or the highest frequency words in speech and writing. Remarkably, these seemingly simple words make up roughly 80% of what we say! They can be used and combined for a full variety of communicative functions (such as initiation, termination, commenting, requesting, asking, interjecting and directing others). Teaching core vocabulary allows students the chance to do more than just get their needs and wants met, but to develop authentic language skills!

Modeling and repetition are important parts of core vocabulary learning and instruction. You may notice that some products contain repetitive refrains or frequent repetitions of the same core words. This is done with the intent of getting the most repetition and practice possible while still having fun!

Suggestions for using core vocabulary communications boards/ AAC Devices:

1) It’s okay to be slow! Your students will need the extra time to find icons and follow your models, so going slow is only beneficial!

2) Model, model, model. Students learn by watching you use the core board/ device and hearing you speak the words. If your student is hesitant about touching the board at first, then for now you can settle for letting them attend to you using the board. This can be a nice introduction to the idea that the boards are there for communication.

3) You are NOT limited to only using the words “look” and ‘like.” These words should be the focus of the next two weeks, but feel free to be modeling words and phrases as appropriate in all settings. Also, when you are modeling use of the board you do not need to touch an icon for every single word that you say. For example, you may tell a student “Look at your work,” but the only icon you touch might be “look.”

4) Everybody should be on board. All staff members who interact with the students should get familiar using the core board. This is now a way that we can all communicate with each other.
