The last 3 weeks I shared about the different books in my Feature Adapted book series. To finish off my feature unit I created some worksheets you can use with your students. These worksheets are set up just like the Function Worksheets I shared with you a few weeks ago. There are 3 different levels of difficulty depending on your students’ skill level. I created 5 worksheets for each level for a total of 15 free Feature Worksheets.
For the first set of worksheets, the student needs to match the item to the feature the item has. I used visuals for both the objects and the feature words to provide that added visual support and also so students who are non-readers can complete these worksheets. The student can draw a line from the object to the correct feature of that object. With your verbal students you can have them name the object and the corresponding feature. You can even work on them expanding their utterances to tell you about the matches. For example, “a zebra has stripes” or “the car has a trunk”. You can also have them point to the feature on the given object.
Your students with AAC devices can do the same thing. They can either name the items or the feature concepts on their device or combine words together to make phrases. The can even just work on putting words together “girl hair” or work on making more complete phrases “the girl has hair” or “the apple has seeds”.
The next 5 worksheets the student needs to answer the questions and they have a visual choice of 3 answers for each question. Either you or the student can read the question and then have them circle or color the answer. Again, they can point to the feature concept on the item. “the squirrel has fur” and “penguin has flippers”.
You can always put the worksheets in page protectors or laminate them and you can use dry erase markers so you can erase and reuse the worksheets. If you had a small group of students they could each complete the worksheet independently and then you can check it together. They could take turns answering the questions.
The final set of 5 worksheets are most difficult. For these worksheets the student has to answer the feature questions by identifying 3 items which present with the given feature. Hopefully after reading all the feature books and completing other feature activities some of your students can do this set of worksheets. Hope these worksheets are helpful for your students.
Don’t forget about my Free set of Feature boards I blogged about previously. Here is the link if you missed it and want information about this activity – Free Feature Boards
