Things I Do at Home



An Interactive Reading Book by Joan Green

This engaging 8"x5" book concerns itself with vocabulary and activities performed at home. After students work on matching, identifying, and labeling pictures, they use the picture cards to create sentences and learn to read the sentences both with and without pictures.

Activities include: eating breakfast, riding my bike, playing with toys, eating lunch, swinging, listening to music, eating dinner, watching TV, using the bathroom, brushing my teeth, taking a bath, going to bed.

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.
