This 14-page document (13 pages for story, 1 page for pictures) is an interactive Easter story designed to target the following skills: the concepts of in and out, receptive vocabulary, picture matching, and labeling. In addition, I use it to facilitate participation, group work, waiting, turn taking, and following directions with my group of students with low-functioning autism in a self-contained class. I also encourage peer interaction and attending to peers by asking them to point to the friend who has the picture card.
Although this interactive story is Easter-themed, this is not a religious story. The word Easter could be changed to "Spring" if preferred. Targeted vocabulary includes: Spring, eyes, egg hunt, coloring eggs, egg, flowers, chocolate egg, bunny, chocolate bunny, Easter bunny, jelly beans, baby chick, eggs, and basket.
To target the concepts of In and Out, I placed velcro "in" the basket and "out" of the basket to help them learn. But you could also cut a slit in the basket to make it look like they are really putting it "in" the basket.
The last page has all of the pictures you'll need with the story, along with a couple of extras to use or discard as you wish. Enjoy!
