I often struggle to find Back to School activities for my students who struggle with many language concepts commonly included and who also have challenges adapting to change. For the upcoming school year I created these mini books for my students to fill out factual information about their school, their classroom, their bus, etc. as well as including opportunities for students to draw their own pictures (or cut out and color pictures from the options included) as well as work on concepts like recalling information and identifying preferences.
I have also included a visual direction page for assembling the book as well as extra (optional) visual supports for each page for those students who need them. I hope you find this helpful and successful for your students.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions for additional pages as well!
