Basic concepts are essential building blocks of language. When children are delayed in acquiring these words, it can make simple tasks challenging and frustrating for them. We know frequent and consistent repetition of information is always best when teaching a new skill. So why not do it when we teach basic concepts? Now you can have a resource that allows you to target specific concepts all week!

*Preview from Set ONE
♥Note: All interactive books use the same images. This is done so that students must listen to, and focus on, the concept they are targeting. When students are shown the same image they are likely to assume they are addressing the same task/concept as previously instructed on , rather than attending to the concept being addressed. By using the same visuals, it can keep students at the ready to listen to the concept they are working and reinforce students to listen to all information.
⭐The following concepts are targeted in this set:
HALF, WHOLE, ALL, NONE
