Wondering how to use your students’ interest in balls to teach COLOUR NAMES? Do you need a hands on, interactive balls theme Adapted Book to teach emergent reading skills? This ‘Ball Colours’ Adapted Book is your print and go resource to help all your students, particularly those with special needs (such as Autism or developmental delay).
This Resource Includes:
1. “I SEE THE BALL” INTERACTIVE ADAPTED BOOK: Adapted Books are simple stories that have been modified in some way to make them more accessible for students. These simple stories can teach concepts or skills and help to build basic reading skills.
How This Adapted Book Will Help Your Students:
DEVELOP LANGUAGE SKILLS: The repetitive ball colours theme teaches colour names and simple sentence structure (‘I see a BLUE ball…. I see a GREEN ball….).
MODEL EARLY SPEECH SOUNDS: A balls theme is a perfect way to introduce simple consonant-vowel combinations, e.g. “Boing-Boing”, “GO!”, “STOP!” and “WEEEEE”
BUILD EMERGENT LITERACY SKILLS: Many students, particularly those with special needs, can find it difficult to engage in traditional books. This interactive Adapted Book gives your students a ‘job’ to do on each page, finding and matching the ball pictures in different colours. This can increase your students’ engagement and concentration whilst teaching early book skills.
EXTEND ATTENTION SKILLS: Basing activities around your student’s interests has been shown to increase engagement and attention to tasks. By using your students’ interests of balls, you can help develop their attention and engagement.
