Storing PECS Pictures
Do you have PECS pictures coming out of your ears? A PECS picture for juice box awkwardly fell out of my wallet the other day as I was paying for my dry cleaning. That was weird to explain. The Picture Exchange Communication System is an amazing way to provide your nonverbal students with a method of communicate. It’s fairly easy to set up and keep going too.
The catch is though – is that you really want to have a wide range of pictures available for your little guys. Having the correct pictures will make your crafts, cooking activities, community outings, – heck even lunchtime – easier and more beneficial for your kids. So how do you store all of these small pieces of laminated love? Drumroll please… baseball card holders.
I have a page or two for each letter of the alphabet and store pictures in alphabetic order. It’s super easy to find pictures and ridiculously space efficient – all of these pictures in one little binder
… and the key to KEEPING this organized (because we all know how easy it is to set something up organized and then completely fail on maintaining it) - is to have a little “to be put away baggie.” In the middle of the crazy and busy times of our day – you better believe I don’t have time to alphabetize PECS pictures. But I can easily throw the pictures I am done using in this baggie and deal with the organizing when I have time!
