Transition booklet and social story SEN

Transition booklet and social story SEN

Download includes three documents.1. Transition booklet: designed to be conducted with the student with support. It introduces the student, who their teachers will be and what will be the same and different in the upcoming year. (spaces to insert pictures or for the child to draw themselves and their new teacher)I'd suggest that they are done in school to gain context but be taken home to support students over the holidays. 2. Same and different pictures: a page of pictures which students can sort into same and different for the upcoming year. Would be great as a class circle time to explain to the students and for them to ask questions to ease anxiety. They can also be used as a cut and stick exercise for page three of the transition booklet. (e.g. friends, classroom, teacher, lunch time, play time, learning, playground etc)3. Back to school social story: A social story to ease the transition from the holidays to school in September.

Summer Building Sentences Activity for Speech Therapy

Summer Building Sentences Activity for Speech Therapy

Forming Sentences (21 pages) for Autism and Special Education, Speech Therapy, OTForming 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 15 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 15 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.
