Early Childhood (PreK, Kind and SpEd 1st) Visuals support MANY of the social skills and concepts we need to teach in and out of the classroom. There is A LOT of stuff here!

Why use these? Young children with learning difficulties due to language delays, autism spectrum disorders, attention deficits, English as a second language- require ongoing coaching and support to understand spoken language- as well as to learn new skills. The problem is- is that much of the time, the information is only coming in one medium- the auditory system.

These visuals provide ACCESS. And will help support the learning of early pragmatic language skills (greeting, commenting, protesting, requesting) by showing a student the skill, rather than always having to prompt, model, coach or request verbally. So much of our time, we are talking... (No grabbing! Use your words. Say- I want..., etc.) It's time to help our students learn through visuals. Visual memory has also been shown in research to be stronger in many children- than auditory memory.

GREAT for PUSH-IN therapy (Speech, Special Ed, Guidance, etc) for use in play areas such as block area, trucks/train area and snack time.
ALSO- ideal for pull-out sessions where as you can display visual prompts and boards for improved understanding of - not only the skill you want to teach- but the positive learning behaviors you want to reinforce. There are many tools included here! I am using them myself to work more in the classroom, during everyday classroom routines.

There are 2 files included.
A. Social Language: 13 Pages, 2 large social language scripts per page to teach students to greet, comment and protest. These cards can be presented individually or in pairs by folding the cards to create a 'tent' (so they can stand up on the floor, in an upside down V).

- 3 Pages of Social Language is dedicated to Snack Time. Keep cards out separately, or create a tent by folding in the middle so students can see the prompts as they eat. (Do you like it? Yes/No. I want more please. Say the teachers names. I need a napkin, etc).

B. The 2nd File: PK Visuals for Concepts: 17 Pages.
Learning Behavior Boards:
1 Page can be customized (I am working on) to help your students remember to: sit, listen, wait, take turns, watch, look, etc).
2 Other pages are pre-made with listen, look and wait prompts.

Following Directions Board- so your students can see how many directions they will be asked- great for the student who is resistant or noncompliant.

Understanding Negation icons- plus a board to place puzzle pieces, toys and pictures during play or table work.

Question forms- to use during any activity or a story comprehension task.

Can you help me? Icons- to place on locations that a child needs help, but doesn't ask (coat closet, cubby, toys box).

Pictures that show: Spatial concepts (in front, in back, between, on, over, under, early quantity concepts (more, less, one, all), Same/Different.

8 Main Early Developing Concepts Visuals- so when you are doing a puzzle and want to develop more than just labels, sort them into animals, food or toys.

2 Pages depicting Plurality (show me the dogs. Show me the apples).

A Page with 16 small pictures to practice OBJECT FUNCTION- What do you do with a .... hat, scarf, umbrella, knife, etc.

Best when printed on Card Stock. Consider printing Social Skills on a separate color, such as yellow- and store them in the classroom so you can use 1 or 2 during floor play. Encourage the Paras and Assistants to use them.

If you find an error, kindly contact me and I will fix the problem asap.

Thank you for checking this out and thank you for supporting your students.
