I use this easy to assemble interactive book to teach your students about actions and how to answer “who” questions. It gives them many opportunities to answer with a name or a description like “the boy” or “the baby” or “he/she is.”
A teaching tool is also included!
Each page of the interactive book contains 2 people. I used varying genders so that the child can use pronouns he/she to answer if they cannot remember names.
The first page featuring the characters shows what each child is doing. It often prompts the child to point to something on the page or perform the action - a fun & truly interactive part of this activity! The next page then asks them a “who” question that requires an answer. They can tell the answer verbally OR children with more limited verbal skills can physically “give” the answer by choosing the appropriate answer from the 12 moveable picture choices.
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!
Unlike some interactive books, students cannot rely on matching with this book.
