Product Description

This is an activity targeting the core words IN, THE, and WATER; while sorting items that go in the sky or in the water. It is great for an oceans unit or space and planets unit.

Students can sort items, such as fish, crabs, rocket ships, and birds, into the appropriate category (sky or water). Targeted phrases include "In the water" or "In the sky". This is great for repetition and lots of practice saying functional phrases verbally or using AAC.

This is perfect for non-verbal or minimally verbal students, those with autism, or severe and multiple disabilities.

Core words make up approximately 80% of all the words we say. These words are super powerful and useful because they can be used in many different situations and settings. For example, instead of using the word ocean in this lesson; I used the core word WATER. You can use water to talk about the ocean, a stream, a pond, a lake, a pool, the rain, bath water, or drinking water.
