Here's the truth. If you use every activity in this set, it will take prep work since laminating symbols to use with minimally verbal students just goes like that. Try photocopying first to make it quick and easy!

Then you can print and laminate as needed, and use this thematic set for years. You won't find this many language-building activity choices to meet individualized needs in one packet for this population anywhere else!
