I love interactive books. They are really great for minimally verbal students. They can show their knowledge without needing to verbally produce answers. For kids just learning to express themselves in single words or simple phrases, pictures support that level of speech. If students are communicating in sentences they can make up their own language to describe the picture/scene.
Interactive books give little hands something to do. They also have a very clear ending. The kids can see if they get the 12 pictures done they are finished with this activity. I can work on many additional goals (verbs, pronouns, functions, attributes, etc.) while targeting this activity. This meets the curriculum vocabulary for my preschool programs during the first month of school.
I made these books available in two sets. The first set is a Back to School Set. It includes the ‘School Tools’, ‘Actions at School’ and ‘Places at School’ books. You can find it here on TpT.
I’ve used these so much during the week!
The kids loved them and I got amazing baseline data. All the pictures on the base of the book get a piece of velcro right on top. Then cut out the same picture and put directly on top. As the kids read the book they find the corresponding picture to match the page and stick it to the page.
I’m so glad I had them in my rolling cart this week!
The Wheels on the Bus book includes the first two lines of each lyrics written with adapted symbols.
The student matches the picture to the correct part of the bus. Lightened pictures are used for support.
The Wheels on the Bus download is available separately from the other sets. You can find it in my TpT Store.
