This AMAZING bundle is so versatile, you can’t live without it! There are 72 picture cards available in color and black/white. Picture cards are also available with words printed underneath in ALL CAPS and all lowercase letters, which makes them useful for preschool as well as the early elementary years. There are also 110 other word cards (verbs, prepositions and adjectives) included. Word cards are color-coded but also available in black/white (and in upper/lowercase sets). There are 15 fill-in-the-blank sentence strips and sentence starters as well as 4 additional blank sentence strips available!!! A NO-PRINT activity with multiple choice question prompts and individual/group data sheets are also included in this irresistible bundle!
So how many different ways can you use these materials? A LOT!!! Here are some examples of how I used them in therapy:
- For students working with assistive technology (with dynamic displays), I have been using these sentences strip set to have students practice finding new vocabulary on their devices and sequencing the sentences. Because the “word finder” on the program my students are using has a basic QWERTY keyboard, I use the word and picture cards that have ALL CAPS so my younger students can match the letters independently as they search for words. This has been an amazing tool to help my students with assistive technology generalize their skills and become more independent when using their devices outside of therapy
- I have several students who have significant difficulty answering basic “what” and “where” questions. So I have been providing them with multiple choice picture responses (as you have seen in some of my other products. For students who are working on answering questions and using sentences – use the picture cards to create a multiple-choice picture response set (4-6 pictures). After you ask the question, have the student place the picture card (and other word cards as necessary) on the sentence strip and say the sentence about the target picture (e.g. What can you eat? –I eat the apple).
- For students working on word relationships, this bundle offers a fantastic array of pictured items that can help student practice associations, categorization/exclusion and comparing/contrasting. There are sentence starters to help student organize their response when explain how items go together and/or differ from one another.
- Use these cards for writing supports for students who struggle to form a sentence. The word cards can be used in conjunction with the picture cards to have students practice sequencing parts of a sentence first then transfer it to writing. The picture cards and NO-PRINT activity can also be used as writing prompts to help students who need visual to help them come up with sentences.
