The notebook is designed for the students to use it as a visual sequence when cooking. They have all the ingredients and utensils needed and then an easy to follow recipe. It has an inbuilt shopping activity so that the cooking can be integrated into a shopping program. Within the shopping part which encourages literacy skills, students can choose what they will buy and then make their own shopping list by either writing it or sticking the associated visual onto their shopping list. There are also some integrated literacy skills to match the ingredients as well as some writing sheets. There is a pairs game to reinforce the learning. It was created for students with special needs (SEN) for teaching life skills but can be used as a valuable resource for early years literacy.

Thanksgiving Building Sentences Activity for Speech Therapy

Thanksgiving Building Sentences Activity for Speech Therapy

I SEE ...Interactive Book for Thanksgiving and Fall, great for Autism and Special Education, Speech Therapy, OT, TEACCH, kindergarten and preschool students. Forming Sentences for Autism and Special Education, Speech Therapy, OT Forming sentences is very important for young learners or those with autism. This activity uses real-life pictures for easy recognition of common objects and sight words as sentence starters. It is perfect for early readers. This is also an activity to practice identifying the attributes of what, the number, and the color of a group of items. There are 12 groups of items. The student will match the corresponding picture to answer the questions - What? How Many? There are 2 ways to use this file: 1. Print the first 12 pages and use the pages as a “cut and paste” activity. The students will use glue to paste the correct answers where necessary. 2. Print all the pages on photo paper and laminate them. Cut out the pages containing the numbers and pictures. There are 2 pages that serve as boards for the types of answers (“what?”, “how many?”). Use Velcro on the back side of each card and in the middle of each blank square on the boards as well as on each square containing the questions. Thus the activity can be reused as many times as needed. *** Students can build 2 types of sentences: -using cards with words and hints (dots for the numers and pictures for the object words), then -using cards with only words, as shown on the title page. This is a great matching activity for K and 1st gr and for students with autism.
