This hands-on, visually supported expressive language set can address multiple skills while helping your students build sentences to tell about winter. The 3 file folder activity winter scenes for making sentences have options for 3 to 5 part sentences that let you address who, what, where and how questions. The winter scenes and the 44 winter photo cards work well for describing activities, too, and a sentence board for winter clothing is included. Great for autism and AAC!

Sped teachers use file folder activities effectively, so why not SLPs? Now you can build language skills visually using file folders and develop literacy and play skills in the same packet! I can't talk fast enough to give you all of the ideas in 45 seconds, so I made a video preview to give you an idea of what you can do with this activity-packed set! Check it out!

Activity Choices:
1- Multiple different file folder sentence activities can be made with the 3 winter scenes and 4 sentence building options.
2- Build sentences using the symbols to answer who, what, where and how questions about the pictured activities.
3- Play a sentence-building game.
4- Build sentences to tell about the 44 winter photo cards in group or independent activities- great for centers!
5- Use the sentence board to describe the color winter clothing the children in the scenes are wearing.
6- Complete the picture worksheets for varied language skills (sentences, categories, and functions.)
