Semantic webs / Visual supports are a MUST helping students organize their thoughts for verbal and written expression. I love this engaging resource for students working on describing objects using attributes such as object function, categories, and more. The structured approach is perfect for teaching sentence formation. It's also great for students who tend to provide a list of irrelevant details without getting to the main point.
Here is what you'll get:
- This is a bundle! It includes 3 complete resources for the seasons fall, winter, and spring.
- Colorful slides for each word with fill-in-the-blank prompts to help students organize their thoughts into complete sentences.
- Although there are many ways to fill in the blanks, each visual support slide is followed by an identical slide with sample answers.
- 24-25 words for each season with accompanying sample answers
- This is a great activity to use alongside the EET! I have also included a cueing sheet to correlate with the Expanding Expressions Tool.
Ways you can use it:
•Display on your favorite device and simply scroll through the pages.
•Share your screen for teletherapy
•This makes a great “push-in lesson”!
•Laminate the pages and use dry erase markers to fill in the blanks.
• Use it as an Easel activity.
•After working through the activity, try it again without the visual support slides.
Here's what others have said:
"I love this resource! One of my students has a goal for defining words with the category plus two key features. We use a semantic web and then pull the most important attributes to fill in the blanks on these worksheets. Definitely recommend for your students who are working on organizing their vocabulary!"
"This has been a great starting tool to get my students to think about the different ways you can describe objects. They love pretending that they are explaining the items to a space creature who knows nothing.. they think it is so fun!"
"I like the framework for providing details so students can work on expanding syntax while including relevant details instead of less complex responses. "
