Adapt your favorite therapy picture books for your AAC users! This download includes symbol adaptations for your favorite winter books! Cut out each core word symbol sentence strip and tape it into the book below the text. You might want to use removable double sided tape! I create a lending library by buying three copies of each book from Scholastic. On the front of each book, I write "please return to XX Speech Dept." I send one copy home to parents, put one in the classroom, and keep one to use in speech! This download comes with Smarty Symbol sentences of up to three words. It focuses on Core Words and only includes a few fringe vocabulary words.
13 Books included. (You will need to purchase these books)
