An Interactive Reading Book About Appropriate School Behaviors by Joan Green
Through the process of matching, identifying, and labeling the picture cards in this engaging 8″ x 5″ book, students learn appropriate school behaviors. By knowing what is expected of them at school, young learners are more apt to enjoy the school environment and, therefore, become better students.
The first sentence on each page expresses a need:
I need to go to the bathroom. What do I do?
I ask the teacher if I may go. I come right back to the class when I am done.
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 on each sentence page is, for most students, a highly-enjoyable experience. Activities and directions included.
