These adapted/interactive books and related activities are perfect for preschool and kindergarten students, special education students, and students needing extra assistance when reading. This product is a great way to teach young students the rules of the bus. It can be used a a read aloud, a language arts/literacy center or in a classroom library during the "Back to School" season or during the school year when students need a "refresher" on the rules. The books use predictable text that exposes students to the vocabulary associated with the rules of the bus.
School Bus Rules Adapted Books (2 Levels)
Appropriate vs. Inappropriate Bus Behavior Sorting Activity
"My Bus Behavior" Check-in
Level 1- Students are responsible for reading the text or listening to the text. There are not interactive pieces for this level. This level is perfect for a small or whole group read aloud.
Level 2- The students are working on the same vocabulary. However in this level, there are interactive pieces, and students must match the picture to each corresponding page.
In both levels, there are multiple options included for some rules. Some of the bus rules are written with a "positive" tone and a "negative" tone depending on the vocabulary used in your classroom. For example, there is an option for, "I need to sit down on the bus" and "I cannot stand on the bus."
Students must identify the appropriate bus behaviors on each card by circling, marking or clipping their answer. There are 7 task cards included.
Students must sort appropriate and inappropriate bus behavior. This sorting activity allows students to practice the skills they learned when reading/listening to the story. This can be made into sorting mats or a file folder activity.
*"My Bus Behavior Check-in" Activity:
This can be done with an adult or individually following or before the bus ride. Students can reflect on their behavior and "check-off" what they did during their bus ride correctly, which could lead to a conversation on what the student can "try again" the next time.
There are 6 visual cues included that the teacher/staff can use to prompt the students on the bus. These visual cues can be given to the bus driver or aide. The picture prompts correspond to the pictures in the book. These can be carried or clipped and placed on a lanyard.
