1. "What Will the Horse Eat?" story- This adapted book has 8 pages and focuses on the student's ability to identify fruits for the horse to eat. Each page is the same (please look at the sample). The student can make a choice from 2 detachable pictures (using Velcro) to feed the horse. The student then takes his/her choice and makes a sentence at the bottom of the page.
2. Detachable pictures to use with story– fruit, vegetable foils, object foils
3. Sorting board to sort pictures from the story into fruit/not a fruit categories.
4. Horse folder activity– Attach the horse to a file folder. Cut a small rectangle over the horse’s mouth big enough to fit the detachable pictures through it. Staple the sides of the folder. Have the student feed the horse fruit.
5. Communication board to be used when reading the story or doing the horse folder activity.
Directions for making the books-
1. Print the book using card stock or regular paper.
2. Laminate each page using a heat laminator (Velcro will not stick to film that comes from a cold laminator).
3. Cut each page in half by cutting on the center line. Cut the picture cards apart.
4. Put the book together using a binding comb or staple.
5. Attach the hook side of the Velcro to the back of each picture card. Attach the loop side of the Velcro to each page in the book where you see a gray circle.
