Show Me a Sign



An Interactive Reading Book About Safety Signs by Joan Green

In the home or out in the community, it's important for everyone to recognize and understand the meanings of street and safety signs. They exsist to protect us from harm or to guide us. Each page in this colorful book displays two signs commonly found in the home or out in the community. Students are asked to choose the correct sign in answer to a posed question.

Q. What sign shows you where to get out?

A. An EXIT sign.

After a student can match, identify, label and understand the meanings of each sign, the next step is to find them at home and in the community.

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.
