#SeptSLPMustHave is a one day, one item 50% off sale held on the seventh of each month. Take advantage of this money saving sale today only! For my #SeptSLPMustHave, I bring you one of my personal absolutely must haves: the FALL-bundle of functional communication song & story boards (includes September, October, November).
This is a packet for teachers, therapists, and parents looking for tools to make songs and stories more accessible for functional communicators. The repetition within the formatting across the months allows for students to become familiar with communication tasks such as labeling, identifying, requesting, sorting, choice making, sequencing, questioning and peer interactions. The content changes, however, to introduce thematic and functional vocabulary. Concepts that are addressed include size, colors, numbers, body parts, actions, and vocabulary (people, food, nature, clothes, school supplies, sports). The song boards and story boards were designed to be laminated and used with velcro in order to make the communication tasks more interactive. Each month is jam-packed with 2 song boards, 3 story boards, plus supplemental cards for sorting, counting, actions and “I have, Who has” games.
–The materials are mostly THEMATIC to the time of year.
–Everything is designed to be INTERACTIVE with our trusty friend, velcro!
–FUNCTIONAL vocabulary and concepts include counting, colors, shapes, animals, food, clothing, days of the week, transportation, holidays, seasons, and actions.
–Favorite songs and stories are ACCESSIBLE to our students with limited verbal speech.
–LITERACY-BASED LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION targets meaningful concepts like sequencing, sorting, identifying, labeling, requesting, choice-making, questioning, and peer interaction.
–Over the course of the four seasons, students will experience REPETITION of targeted communication skills without having to repeat the exact story, song, or activity.
–“I have, Who has” games teach turn-taking, patience, questioning, and game skills within STRUCTURED peer interaction.
