This is a set of core vocabulary based communication board displays for beginning communicators with 8, 15, 20, 28, and 30 symbols, and a generic board for reading activities.
The packet contains some explanation of core vocabulary, why we use it, how to foster its use in classrooms, a list of early core words and core word combinations.
Boards are in color, and use Symbol Stix from News2You. and Smarty Symbols (4 new boards added 1-15 are SmartySymbols boards)
Boards are not color coded per Fitzgerald key or Goosens et al, since not everyone uses the same coding system. (explanation included)
You can easily add color cues to the borders.
