An Interactive Reading Book About Numbers by Joan Green
This engaging 8″x5″ book teaches students to match, identify, label and sequence numbers 1-12. Students learn to read number words one through twelve along with simple nouns such as one tree, two shoes, three pigs, six suns, etc.
Quantity concepts are taught by matching number to picture and picture to number (i.e. Ask the student to put the number “2” card on the picture that has two shoes. Or have the student choose a picture card, count the items, and attach it to the appropriate space.)
Simple math activities such as addition and subtraction can also be performed using this book, which offers many opportunities for exploration and communication.
Interactive Reading Books
encourage speech development, reading skills, fine motor coordination and a variety of other functional skills, all in a fun, interactive way.
Utilizing the power of visual strategies, special needs students of varying levels – as well as beginning readers – learn to associate pictures with words and then create simple sentences visually by attaching (with velcoins) the correct picture cards to the correct squares on each sentence page. Students then re-read (or sign, or communicate) the sentences aloud.
The tactile and sonic nature of moving the picture cards and placing them on the correct squares of each sentence page is, for most students, a highly-enjoyable experience. Activities and directions included.
