How to Use
→ Groundhog Positions, Book 1 Receptive: The students get to take a groundhog named Phil out of his den at the top of the book and place him around pictures on the pages (according to prompt). This is great for positional vocabulary, listening, and following directions. I made a receptive visual support board to use if the students need it!
→ Groundhog Positions, Book 2 Expressive: The students are asked “Where is Phil” on each page. The objective is for them to expressively use the positional words. I have included visual support picture symobls for the target phrase on the bottom of each page if needed. I use this book after they have mastered the receptive book. (I have found that if the students tap the boxes, it encourages them to verbalize)!
→ Groundhog in the Room Game Receptive Activity: Have the students hide Phil (a large version of the groundhog that you laminate) around the room with the included direction cards (1 step & 2 steps). You can also make up your own directions and use a toy groundhog if you have one!
→ Groundhog in the Room Expressive Activity: Hide Phil and ask the student to tell you where he is. Use the included Groundhog in the Room Expressive Visual Support board for students who need it.
→ Groundhog Positions Flash Cards: You can use these during an open-ended game or to reinforce the concepts from the book. Ask the student “Where is Phil” while looking at each card. You can also use the Visual Support Board with the cards if needed.
→Color-A-Groundhog: Print and have the students color their own groundhog!
→Colorful Groudhogs: Print the book, cut on the dotted line, stack together, & staple! The students are prompted to color groundhogs according to basic concepts (color 1 groundhog red, color the bottom groundhog green, color the big groundhog pink, ect..)
→NO-PRINT Book: Open up on an iPad or other compatible device and play (the student will tap the screen).
