Song Choice Card, Circle Time, Choice Making
This is a song card that can be used during circle time.
Children make a song selection. It allows you as the teacher to choose which songs will be featured during circle time but also gives the children the opportunity to make choices. This can be a first step in communication with the children making requests
. This is great for early intervention, preschool, daycare or kindergarten students.
Can also be used in special education.
For students who are non-verbal
or using PECS
as their communication system, it will allow them to make the selection and give it to the adult.
Songs are something that can assist in the development of language
as well as other learning (rhyming, counting
etc.). The repetition of the lyrics aids in memory
and the fact that the vowels are elongated assists some children in developing of verbal skills.
I find that the students I work with love picking new songs or will pick a song that they know their friends enjoy, making this tool also a fabulous one for building social skills.
Laminate the song board base and put Velcro (soft side) on each of the squares.
Laminate the song choices and cut them apart and put Velcro on each square (hard side).
There are some sentence strips so if you are working to increase the sentence length you are able to use. The child can 'read' the pictures to say the sentence. I like this song.
Enjoy and if there are songs that you would like to see featured tell me!
This has a baseboard and then 5 sheets of song choices for 100 song choices. It also has a sentence request strip and two comment sentences.
If you want to see the songs that are on it this here is a blog that has them listed. Let's Sing a Song
