After a brief lull here, I'm getting back up to speed.
Valentine's Day; I just substituted shamrocks. With this booklet, there are icons to go with every page, plus a patterned sentence calling for a fill-in. This is great for early literacy, vocabulary, speaking in simple sentences, and for the concept of 'on'. If you want to extend this to articulations---'SH' comes to mind!
I'm a big believer in Joint Action Routines---once you establish a routine with a child, you can change the activity a little, and give the child a chance to learn new vocabulary, but with the same routine. This book is an example of that---earlier it was Hearts Everywhere, now it's shamrocks! Have fun!
