This PDF is a visual for Eric Carle's "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See" story. It can be used as a language aide for verbal children or can be used as a communication tool by non-verbal children.
Instructions: Take a regular-sized file folder and open it. Paste page 1 on the left side and paste page 2 on the right side of the file folder. Take the icons on page 3 and cut each of them out individually. Then paste them onto posterboard or another thick board that you can cut. Cut around each of the icons leaving a border. Next laminate both the file folder and the icons. Put Velcro on each empty space of pages 1 and 2 once the file folder is laminated. Velcro the icons too. When the icons are not in use, keep them on page 2. When telling the story, the "I" and "see" icons are placed in the first two boxes on page 1. As you go through the story, the third box on page 1 is changed using the icons on page 2. Please note that the icons contain both "mother" and "teacher" pictures to go with the various versions of the story.
