Animated Step-by-Steps® are animated PowerPoints designed to address literacy, language, AAC and a host of academic goals. Each page includes a series of animations. Read the text up to the star … click … and see an animation of what you just read. With symbol supported versions, the symbols are added after the page animations are complete (to avoid stealing attention from a 'literacy first' agenda).
There are three versions of this Dominoes resource (Regular, PCS, SymbolStix). This is the SymbolStix Version (Tobii/Dynavox).
Games are an excellent way to promote peer-peer interactions, hopefully with the final outcome of nurturing true friendships.
The Dominoes resource is part of an ongoing series of 'How to Play' resources. These resources are designed primarily to share the objectives and rules of the game using an interactive whiteboard. The internet has many rule variations. This resource attempts to offer a more basic version more appropriate for use with children with special needs.
Other 'How to Play' Resources include:
Rock, Paper Scissor
I Spy With My Little Eye
Beat the Clock (a variation of Hangman)
