Product Description

The Interactive Book for Speech Therapy: Thanksgiving Turkey is a no print and no prep ActivInspire flipchart book. It is a fun Thanksgiving story that engages students with autism and developmental delays from the beginning to the end. The story of the farmer boy looking for a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner increases their use/understanding of core words (i.e. where, look, not, it, on, in, under, behind, in front of) and gives practice in asking and answering where questions. Will he find the turkey? Or does the turkey get safely away?

This flipchart lesson includes:

"I can" statements.

• notes browser (yellow note icon) explains features for interactive pages and gives lesson procedure.

• simple, interactive Table of Contents/lesson schedule.

• visual dictionary to introduce/review core words (in, on, under, behind, in front of, where, it, not.

• engaging story with realistic character and animal images with sound effects and visual supports to aid the students in story comprehension.

• animated farm boy who demonstrates looking around for the turkey.

• repetitive text to teach core words. Opportunities for students to make predictions.

• an interactive survey (“Did you like the story?”) with animated yes/no faces

• lesson closure page

• 22 interactive and/or animated pages

Repetition, repetition, repetition. I use these flipcharts like a storybook and read them repeatedly over a number of sessions. For large group instruction, the special education teachers and the paraprofessional assist while I present the flipchart on the interactive whiteboard and point to the core word board.

This is how I use the flipchart:

  • Introduce vocabulary in Visual Core Word Dictionary of the flipchart. Demonstrate core words and point to them on the AAC device and/or core word board.
  • With the student’s AAC device and/or a core word board nearby for me to model pointing, I read the flipchart book once through as I click all of the interactive features.
  • I read it again with the students acting out the parts (i.e. pretend to look in, on, under objects). I continue to pair it with the AAC device and core word board.
  • The 3rd, 4th, etc. readings are completed during following therapy sessions and followed up by an activity such as one of the super fun follow-up activities listed below. Aided Language Input is continued.
  • By the time the unit is finished, I have read the story up to five times. I have modeled AAC use and the students know the story. The special education teacher has the interactive whiteboard as one of the centers. This is when the students read it, click the interactive features on the flipchart on their own, and possibly use their AAC device or core word board as they have seen me use it. Of course, the SLP, teacher, or paraprofessional may be at that center to facilitate and guide.
  • I use these flipcharts for small groups and individual groups, too. When I do not have access to an interactive whiteboard, I use my laptop computer.
  • Super fun follow-up activities:
