I love using realistic pictures in my functional skills classroom because it shows real life examples of what the skill we are practicing looks like. Real pictures help students with autism and other developmental and/or intellectual disabilities receive real world instruction in life skills.
My ultimate goal as a functional curriculum teacher is to help my students achieve independence. Part of being independent is knowing how to read community signs in order to stay safe and be a productive member of society. This no-prep packet helps students move towards that goal.
This packet includes:
-10 journals using realistic pictures of the signs: Stop, No Diving, Keep Out, No Trespassing, Restrooms, No Smoking, Beware of Dog, Emergency and Handicap.
-10 Word Finds
-10 Sign Finds
-Sign Flash Cards
I use this product with my middle schoolers in a Functional Curriculum setting. However, this product could be adapted to fit the elementary level or a functional curriculum at the high school level.
As always, please make sure to put the FUN in functional while using this product and rate it at my TPT store!
