Summer Interactive Books!
These are fun, simple books that can be used in a variety of ways. They are pretty easy to assemble with a little lamination and Velcro. Complete instructions for how to assemble these books are included in the packet.
The first book is called What Do You See?
In this book, students use the interactive pieces to complete sentences about things that they can see in the summer. Examples include a bike, a sand castle, a pool, and sunscreen. Here is an example of a page:
The second book is called Summer Activities.
|There are two additional activities included in the packet you will receive.|
In this book, students use the interactive pieces to complete sentences about activities they can do in the summer. The ten activities include: playing in sand, swimming, surfing, camping, canoeing, planting flowers, playing baseball, having a picnic, hiking, and riding a bike. Here is an example of a page:
The third book is called Summer Clothes.
In this book, students use the interactive pieces to complete sentences about clothes or things they can wear in the summer. The ten items include: sun hat, cap, swim suit, shorts, t-shirt, sunglasses, mask, snorkel, flippers, sandals. Here is an example of a page:
These books are great because they can be very versatile. I use them with my students who have ASD and need help expanding their utterance length. Sometimes, I will pull the book apart and pull off two or three interactive pieces to create a smaller field of choices for my students.
I also use these books for some of my Kindergarten and First Grade students who need a little help with using complete sentences. I use them for WH questions such as:
- When can you wear shorts?
- What do you see in the summer?
- What can you do in the summer?
- When can you go swimming?
These books have been so much fun for me to make and use with my students. When my older students come into my room, and the books are lying on the table, they can't help themselves either. They love to look through the books and manipulate the pieces. Kids LOVE Velcro!
