Land or Water Animal? ***UPDATED MAY 2016***
This download includes one adaptive and interactive book! Have fun learning & matching functional vocabulary and completing carry over pages to reinforce the concept!
These books are great for: functional vocabulary, increasing MLU (mean length of utterance), matching skills, expressive/receptive language skills following directions, and listening skills. They were designed to be simple and functional without a lot of distracting images or text. I hope you find them useful! I love using them in speech therapy sessions! These would also be great for pk/k, special education, or ESL! Many children will recognize the functional vocabulary in these books and get excited to use the symbols and pieces!
How I use this book: I point to the large picture on the page and see if they can identify it (I use the prompts: “what is this” or “this is a ____”). I lay out a choice of 3 images (you can use more or less depending on ability) and have them find the matching picture and place it in the blank square on the page. Next I ask them “when do you wear _________?” “ when it’s hot or cold” (while holding up or pointing to the symbols). The student will then place the correct symbol in the blank square. After that I have them repeat the sentences on the page while pointing to the symbols. “I wear mittens when it’s cold” If they are non-verbal have them point while you verbalize the sentence. For some of my students I will break it up into two phrases “I wear mittens” “when it’s cold.” There are 2 scene pages for the children to interact with. Ask the child to put the bathroom items in the bathroom and the kitchen items in the kitchen. This is a great carry over activity to reinforce the concept! This also adds a fun element to the book!
