This is a great book for following directions, learning spatial concepts, and introducing new vocabulary. Each page illustrates a scene and contains three separate directions (embedded with a spatial concept) that instruct the student to place a particular animal in a specific part of the scene. The instructions also contain sequencing words (first, next, and last) so that if desired, you can include both concepts into your lesson. This book is scribed in a way that can incorporate 1, 2, and 3-step directions depending on what your student’s objectives are. You can utilize this book within a small group and modify the instructions based on each one’s needs. Under the instructions on each page you will also find a “where” questions designed to then have the students expressively tell you where they placed each animal. I usually look for the children to the use the spatial vocabulary used in the instructions (i.e. “I put the monkey in the tree”)This book can also be used to expand vocabulary by having the students label the animals and different parts of the scene.
Spatial concepts included in this lesson are: in, on, above, on top, below, under, next to, between, in the middle, in front, and behind.
Instructions on how to use and how to assemble (very simple)
10 scenes (pages) with 3 spatial instructions per page.
Animals for each page (3 per page, per instruction)
