1 in stock


An Interactive Reading Book by Joan Green

As with all of the books in this series, children learn to match picture to picture, identify and label pictures, sequence pictures, create sentences, and read.

This engaging 5″x8″ book features 12 sets of opposites: old/young, boy/girl, dirty/clean, open/closed, day/night, full/empty, fast/slow, big/little, hot/cold, on/off, up/down, hard/soft.Two sentences appear on each page, illustrating each set of opposites, i.e. The dishes are dirty. The clothes are clean.

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.
