 This set of play companions will help you to teach your students to engage in play in a natural and fun atmosphere.  Many of our students benefit from visuals, so why not use visuals to teach play skills?!?  That’s the idea behind this visual companion set.  An adult models the play task by using a visual support that is carefully disguised as part of the play  (Doctor’s notes, Parent’s To-Do List, etc).  When it’s the student’s turn they have the same visual support available to them.  They simply check off the tasks as they go! Visual supports mean less prompting and more INDEPENDENCE!  Oh, and the visual supports are also paired with core vocabulary phrases appropriate for each play task.  Let’s get them talking!  Let’s get them playing! We can all agree that teaching play skills is SOOO important.  But why does it have to be so hard?  Well . . . NOW IT DOESN’T have to be!!!  Details 50 Page PDF Download Doctor Play:  Use the “Doctor’s Notes” and a toy doctor kit to perform “check ups” on peers. Pet Play: Choose a pet and take care of all its basic needs with the “Pet Owner’s To-Do List”. Restaurant Play: Take orders from peers and serve up meals with the “Waiter’s Notes” and menu. Train Play: Use language to set up a train track and direct traffic. Baby Play: Use the Parent’s “To-Do List” to take care of baby’s basic needs.  This set also includes BONUS scripts for lunch and recess times!  Break times are fantastic learning opportunities! Get your students using functional communication and core vocabulary during social moments.

Here and There “2 Words for 2 Weeks,” a series of instructional activities and suggestions for using target core vocabulary words with our students. Why “here” and “there”? These words are powerful for our students because here/ there can be used for many communicative functions.  Includes This packet is HUGE! It provides a full 2 weeks of instructional materials if you are completing tasks daily. With CORE language the focus is on getting students to truly develop their language, by understanding the words and how they are used across multiple settings and environments.  Everything you need to get started is included in this packet! :) Happy teaching!  Core Vocabulary Language Books Come Here! (12 pages) - this adorable book has your students finding dogs making not the best choices, their job is to tell the dog to "Come here!" before he creates more of a mess!  Where is it? Here it is? Find the Elf (22 Pages)- Your students can partner up with this book having one of them practice reading/ asking the question "Where is it?" while the other finds the elf and says "Here it is." Look There Fairy (25 pages) Another look and find book, but this time your student will practice saying "Look there" to direct another person's attention to the location of a fairy hidden in the images. I Want to go... There (13 pages) Your student will be able to express their desire by choosing a location they'd rather go. The question is asked, "Where do you want to go," and they can respond with, "I want to go there" and indicate their choice. The later pages in the book show something/ someone and 2 habitats, your student will indicate where it should be. (ex: a baby: in a crib or on a rollercoaster)  Here/ There Game (13 Pages)  Where does it go? Practice putting everyday household items away with this Here/ There Mat Game. Students draw a card and place it on the mat where it belongs. (ex: plate goes in the kitchen). When they place it down they should say "here" or "there." 11 Word Work No Prep Pages  Information about CORE language, and where to find support to begin the process of going CORE with your students.  This packet is based on a selection of core vocabulary, or the highest frequency words in speech and writing. Remarkably, these seemingly simple words make up roughly 80% of what we say!  They can be used and combined for a full variety of communicative functions (such as initiation, termination, commenting, requesting, asking, interjecting and directing others). Teaching core vocabulary allows students the chance to do more than just get their needs and wants met, but to develop authentic language skills!  Modeling and repetition are important parts of core vocabulary learning and instruction.  You may notice that some products contain repetitive refrains or frequent repetitions of the same core words.  This is done with the intent of getting the most repetition and practice possible while still having fun! Great for Independent Work Station    Core Suggestions Suggestions for using core vocabulary communications boards/ AAC Devices: 1) It’s okay to be slow! Your students will need the extra time to find icons and follow your models, so going slow is only beneficial! 2) Model, model, model. Students learn by watching you use the core board/ device and hearing you speak the words. If your student is hesitant about touching the board at first, then for now you can settle for letting them attend to you using the board. This can be a nice introduction to the idea that the boards are there for communication. 3) You are NOT limited to only using the words “stop” and ‘go.” These words should be the focus of the next two weeks, but feel free to be modeling words and phrases as appropriate in all settings. Also, when you are modeling use of the board you do not need to touch an icon for every single word that you say. For example, you may tell a student “Look at your work,” but the only icon you touch might be “look.”  4) Everybody should be on board. All staff members who interact with the students should get familiar using the core board. This is now a way that we can all communicate with each other.
