Building Sentences - Flowers

Building Sentences - Flowers

Build a Sentence for Autism and Special Education, Speech Therapy, ABA, OT (19 pages) 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 10 groups of items. The student will match the corresponding picture to answer the questions - What? How Many? What Color? There are 2 ways to use this file: 1. Print the first 13 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 colors, numbers and pictures. There are 3 pages that serve as boards for the types of answers (“what?”, “how many?”, “what color?”). 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.
