Three sets of 4 questions are provided on two different levels—questions with pictures and questions without pictures. Most questions will require a personalized answer to be written inside the foldable but one page of responses are provided for students to cut and paste. A data sheet is included with all 12 questions and room for 5 days of data collection. 12 pages total
Teaching intraverbal skills to students with significant language delays can be challenging. Often in the beginning students need prompting to perform intraverbal skills but fading verbal prompts is a difficult task. However, I have found foldables to be a fun and effective way to teach intraverbal skills by providing a word or picture prompt on the inside of each question. When introducing each set of questions, allow student to lift the flap to access the prompt. As students progress, you can reveal only part of the picture or word underneath until they are able to answer without any visual or verbal support.
