I love doing seasonal poems with the children. The repetition of the sentences assists those with language learning difficulties. This one has Turkeys as the characters so it is great for Thanksgiving.
I have included 3 different versions of the poem. I have groups with a variety of children so I use all three, however, look through them and see what is best for your students.
The first version has the regular sentence, a picture section and a single word.
I have also included several options for the single word. Some students you might want them to simply say the word turkey so there are enough turkeys to allow for this. Some children you might want them to identify the number of turkeys on the page. There are some other children you might want them to identify a different word ( tree, sun, run).
Full Support Use: Laminate the pages and use binder clips to make it a book. Place a Velcro piece soft side down on the empty box. Cut out the single words and separate and but Velcro ( hard) on these. Offer the student the pictures to make a choice and place on the book.
Adapted Sentence Support: I find that when I give a visual sentence for my students to read they feel like they are doing the reading. They follow the sentence from left to right. As the sentence has similar words children often are able to say these words.
Story: The last is just the story that either a child could read or the adult.
I have blogged about it here;
