Yesterday I wrote about ways encourage and teach verbal responding. I love to use the verbal fill in phrases I talked about but I also really love using visuals. Visuals are a great type of prompt to use because when you use a verbal prompt the child is basically just echoing you which is what we want to get away from. Vocal imitation is a great thing to work on separately to build more complex verbal patterns but for this skill we are focusing on getting students to respond independently to questions and comments. You almost don’t want to even care about the words being pronounced perfectly. At this point, you just want to build responding.
These visual questions are a snap to make and can be used daily. We use them in our morning group time during social activities. You can switch around the pictures since they are velcroed so students need to discriminate to choose the response they want.
I store them in these question envelopes in my morning meeting area. I laminated some big pockets I got at the school supply store.
For FREE (for forever – this freebie will always be free!) I have a set of 6 visual questions! Here is what questions there are. This packet comes complete with response options. Laminate both and velcro picture responses to the question card!
Download visual questions – set 2 here 🙂
YIKES!! I was just alerted that this freebie is messed up (thanks Mary!). I accidentally included a duplicate page! But unfortunately – this download is on my work computer 🙁 I will post the “What’s your favorite football team?” and “Whats your favorite cartoon?” on Wednesday. Ay yi yi – I guess multi tasking while watching a riveting Real Housewives episode did not work out…. sorry guys. Freebie Fail…
Social skills instruction is a huge component of my morning meeting. Check out a video tour of my morning meeting area for to see how I organize it:
and lastly HAPPY FRIDAY! Have a great weekend 🙂
