***UPDATED MAY 2016***
Winter or Summer? or Hot or Cold? Two books with different vocabulary options! You choose the book you need (or use both!)
This download includes two adaptive and interactive books! I made two of them because some of my students are not at the same vocabulary level. One books uses winter/summer vocabulary (I wear mittens in the winter) and one uses hot/cold vocabulary (I wear mittens when it’s cold). You choose which book to assemble based on your students’ needs.
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? or “in the summer or winter” (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” or “I wear mittens in the winter” 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” or “in the winter.” There are 2 scene pages for the children to interact with. Ask the child to dress the boy for winter or summer! This is a great carry over activity to reinforce the concept! This also adds a fun element to the book!
