These Interactive Preschool Vocabulary books are designed for teaching vocabulary concepts related to Pumpkins. 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:
Pumpkin Life Cycle
Where is Pumpkin? (positional concepts)
5 Little Pumpkins Sitting on a Gate (finger play/song)
The download is 33 pages in length. Please ask any questions before you purchase.
