Do you have difficulty finding appropriate activities for students with lower language skills, such as students in self-contained classrooms?
Grade level is marked as Pre-K and K. However, this would be appropriate for older special education students in self-contained classrooms.
Often within our self-contained classrooms we have students who are at a variety of skill levels. The activities in this unit cover several different skill levels. All activities have lots of visual supports to enhance comprehension.
A range of expressive language skills are included, from basic skills like labeling, to more difficult skills like describing and answering “why” questions.
Modifications for using less ink/paper are included with most activities.
You will need the book “Little Pea” by Amy Krouse Rosenthal to do the activities in this unit. The book is not included.
This unit ties in nicely with a food or gardening theme (vegetables).
