Product Description
Interactive books are a must for teaching concepts- particularly abstract concepts like wh- words. They're especially useful and engaging for children with limited verbal output, children with autism, visual learners, kinesthetic learners, and children with high energy! This one is perfect for Thanksgiving! Holidays are another tough, abstract concept for our students.

Use this easy to assemble interactive book to engage your little ones while building bacground knowledge about the holiday of Thanksgiving . It should be noted that this book is appropriate for verbal OR nonverbal children.

Even answering the most basic kinds of wh- questions can be a real challenge for our students, but using the included teaching materials and then allowing children to manipulate the relatable images in this book can help make the concept less abstract.

Whether students already grasp wh-questions somewhat or not, this book will give them some practice!

This 23 page download includes:
- teaching visuals to help students understand HOW to answer basic wh- questions
- all the pages and parts needed to assemble the interactive book
- detailed instructions for how to use this adaptable book and how to scaffold based on how well your student performs - the multiple uses suggested will allow you to use this product for longer than you expect

Some of the topics covered in this book include:
- concept that Thanksgiving is in November
- concept that it's a time to be thankful
- Thanksgiving themed activities that may happen at school
- cooking and eating turkey
- grocery shopping/helping mom
- serving turkey/eating/feast
- cooking food/oven/stove
- common Thanksgiving foods/dessert/vegetables
- playing/watching football
- Thanksgiving parade/football traditions
- taking photos at family events
- taking a nap
- spending time with family
- saying, "Happy Thanksgiving!"

Each page portrays an activity associated with Thanksgiving. The book uses relatable and diverse characters engaging in familiar activities. It often prompts the child to point to something on the page or perform an action - a fun and truly interactive part of this book! Another page then asks students a wh- question that requires an answer. Students can tell the answer verbally OR children with more limited verbal skills can physically “give” or adhere the answer to the book by choosing the appropriate image from the 12 moveable picture choices.

Here are some tips:
*To increase difficulty, put ALL question pages at the END of the book so that the questions do not immediately follow the model.
* If students are not attending to the book and instead pre-occupied with reaching for moveable pieces, remove the back page and with the answer choices, keep it out of view, and offer it to them when you are ready for them to answer.

The goal is to get the child to pair the picture with a verbal response. If he/she does not offer a verbal response, model it for him/her. The repetitive nature of this book is likely to eventually shape verbal response. Your modeling is key! Even if the child seems to just be guessing, your repetitive modeling can still drive the concept home!
