I recently went to a workshop run by Karen Erickson. There is not enough space on this page to list all of her skills and accomplishments, but please look up her various projects here. The workshop was an awesome reminder why I like working with students with significant verbal challenges.
I like creating interactive books. These books are meant to not be for mere matching, but for shared reading. The interactive piece is nice for highlighting concepts, and keeping attention, but a core board should always accompany this so the adult can model comments. You can download samples of core vocabulary here.
Anyway, we just had an awesome rain shower last night in Chapel Hill, which reminded me that weather is a common topic in an elementary classroom. I created a free interactive book just for all of my internet friends struggling with finding materials with no instructional budget. Have fun!
