I am so excited about my newest product. In fact, I’ve been using parts of it since October! This product follows the “letter of the week” that my self-contained clsses have as a theme. What I love about this book is that there are 26 books (Yep, TWENTY SIX) that are loaded with that letter. They are short, follow a predictable pattern, and are followed by 4 copmrehension questions.
These books were designed with the iPad in mind (my kids love the glowing screen!), but you can print the stories as well for paper books. Each story is 8 pages long with cute characters, a problem and a resolution.
After each story are 4 comprehension questions with picture choices. My students love to answer questions after looking at the choices on the iPad, but visuals are not neccessary.
For some of my students, 4 pictures is too many. So there is a board and manipulative pictures for each story. For higher level students, you could also mix these choices around every time so the answer options are not stagnant. This method also works extremely well for eye-gaze communicators. I am currently using it with one student who is chosing answers from a field of 4.
The scene and story pictures can be used in several ways:
1. Retell the story.
2. Practice basic concepts (under, next to, first, last)
Each story can easily be used for a week or more, meaning that you have over 26 weeks of thearpy material to work with!
