This workbook has been created to help students of any age practice their personal demographic information. The fonts and layouts were specifically designed to be used with preschool up through high school-aged students with special needs. This book contains picture support and/or images of the American Sign Language (ASL) sign equivalents of the task so that students who use ASL to communicate can access the information and use this book as independently as possible!
PREP: To use this resource, print the pages. The prompt pages should be laminated or inserted into page protectors. Attach Velcro to the blank squares. After changing the placeholder text to student-specific information (i.e. “First name” becomes “Rachel”), print and cut out the option cards (student names, numbers, street names, etc.). Then attach Velcro to the back. I would suggest using cardstock for these, and laminating them if you can.
--NOTE: the image of the Georgia counties (page 9) can be deleted and replaced with a map of your state counties (easily Googled!), or just removed entirely.
STUDENT USE: Students will select their information from the option cards (you can use as few or as many as meet the needs of your students), and place it in the appropriate box with the Velcro. After they find their information, they can use an Expo marker to write on the laminated page or the page protector, using the identified card as a reference point for spelling (this can be phased out as the student masters their information). Store option cards in a binder pencil pouch, or attach more Velcro to a blank page and have students stick the option cards to that Velcro.
