These Interactive Preschool Vocabulary books are designed for teaching vocabulary concepts related to Community Helpers.
The interactive books are designed to allow students to match pictures to each page of the book using velcro.
These books are really great for minimally verbal students. They can show their knowledge without needing to verbally produce answers, just match. For kids just learning to express themselves in single words or simple phrases, pictures support that level of speech. If students are communicating in sentences they can make up their own language to describe the picture/scene.
Interactive books give little hands something to do. They also have a very clear ending. The kids can see if they get the 12 pictures done they are finished with this activity. I can work on many additional goals (verbs, pronouns, functions, attributes, etc.) while targeting this activity. This meets the curriculum vocabulary for my preschool programs during the first month of school.
The four books included in this set are:
-Keeping Me Healthy (doctor, dentist, nurse)
-Keeping Me Safe (police officer, firefighter, soldier)
-People in my town (farmer, chef, construction worker, teacher)
Each of these books at 12 icons. Students match one picture per page.
Two additional books are included where one community helper is on the page and the student matches 3 associated pictures to the person.
Each full packet (3) includes a HOMEWORK sheet to send home. It lists the vocabulary and leaves room for the SLP or teacher to write in what specifically the student worked on.
The download is 37 pages in length. Please ask any questions before you purchase.
