Speech and Language activities and ideas to accompany Karma Wilson’s "Bear Feels Sick" (This resource is a companion to the book. You will need to purchase the book separately).
This is an excellent resource to use with children with Autism, Early Intervention, or children who demonstrate delays in receptive and expressive language.
Most pages can be laminated for durability and be used again and again!
This 22 page resource includes:
-Lesson Plan and Data Sheet: set objectives and monitor progress while reading the story.
-Communication Board: visual aid to accompany the story to help nonverbal and minimally verbal students respond to wh-questions and expand utterance length.
-Picture symbols to adapt your book: add visual supports to each page!
-Make the Bear Feel Better: a structured, hands-on activity to accompany the book while you read. Students can place items around the bear that will make him feel better.
-Sequence the Story! Use visuals to help students retell the story and remember the sequence of events. A blank template is provided that can be laminated, used as a worksheet or sent home as homework! Have students check off boxes as events occur and follow along with the story on an additional sequence page as well!
-Make the Bear Feel Better Craft Activity: Cut, color and glue all of the items that friends give bear throughout the story, plus an additional two items to make him feel better! To use this as an open-ended activity, give student one item for every accurate response for a total of 9 trials!
-Leveled Worksheets and Homework: to ensure recall and comprehension of the story.
