For special education teachers and speech therapists working with young learners in kindergarten through 3rd grade, this personalized "All About Me" file folder activity is a game-changer for the self-contained classroom or speech therapy class. Specifically created for children with autism, this tool aims to enhance speech and communication abilities in a fun, interactive way. Implement in the classroom during one-on-one learning with the teacher or classroom assistant. Encourage the child to describe or talk about their responses with the 30 interchangeable file folder sentence starters with 264 response cards! Just add a photo of the student to the front cover!
Here's how it works:
1. Visual Word Sentence Starters: Laying the foundation for structured communication, these visual cues provide the initial prompt for children. Examples include "I like to eat...", "I like to play with...", and "I like to go to...".
2. Picture Response Cards: After the child picks a sentence starter, they can choose from various picture cards that visually depict their likes and preferences. This reinforces comprehension and vocabulary.
3. Personalization at its Best: What makes this activity stand out is its personal touch. Every child can create a unique folder detailing their interests, making it easier for them to express themselves.
4. Guided Learning Experience: This activity is designed to be conducted under the guidance of a teacher or therapist. This allows for real-time feedback, correction, and encouragement, ensuring that children get the most out of the experience.
