Thanks to a donation of happy Land figures from a Bundle of Books in Herne Bay. I was able to make my lessons on firefighters and police officers a little more engaging and tactile. These toys are so robust that after three weeks they are still going strong. I have two PECS users in my class and 5 other students who use a variety of methods of communication. Even though the range of needs and strengths is vast I like to get the team working together on an activity.
The tasks will be differentiated to each so some may be writing and reading, others may be exchanging for PECS reinforcers (the toys in this case) and others will be working on interaction and communication skills.
I made the video below to show how we can use the theme to introduce the “I see” vocabulary for a PECS user. The next stage would be to swap the pages so he has to choose between firefighter and police officer. I make all the books the same so they can be mixed up in this way.
Download the complete editable Communicate inprint widgit resources here. You will need InPrint 3 from Widgit Software to open them (Not sponsored links – I think it’s great for anyone working in SEN whether that is EYFS or even adult services).
If you don’t need to edit them download the free PDF books below – you can just print out and even laminate if you are going to re-use them.
Hope you find these useful.
