These Interactive Preschool Vocabulary books are designed for teaching vocabulary concepts related to positional concepts of over, under, in front of, and behind. 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 five books included in this set are:
-Where is Sammie? Over/Under
-Sammie is over and under.
-Where is Sammie? In front/behind
-Sammie is in front and behind.
-Sammie finds a treat.
Books 1&a3 are traditional IVBs. Read the story and match the picture. Books 2, 4, & 5 are positional books. On each page put velcro in both available boxes. Your student will move a kitty to the correct box based on the direction you read of the bottom of the page. This will test their knowledge of the concept. Book 5 is meant to be an overall comprehension check in story format rather than structured practice.
This set includes two worksheets 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 48 pages in length. Please ask any questions before you purchase.
