Zero in on "what" questions and target fundamental language skills with eight interactive Matt and Molly stories. This program makes it easy with colorful, sequential story cards; sentence cards; complete lesson plans; and teaching strategies. A "what" question is posed in each story, giving students a choice between two different story endings. The format builds anticipation and lets children determine and participate in the story's outcome.

Each story and its lesson plan is a launch pad for interactive language activities in:

  • sequencing
  • inferring, predicting, and reasoning
  • wh- questions
  • narrative language and descriptive language
  • literacy and text comprehension
  • parts of speech
    • nouns
    • verbs
    • pronouns
    • adjectives
    • adverbs
    • prepositions
    • conjunctions
    • interjections

The program has materials and lesson plans for eight stories and includes:

  • 40 sturdy, full-color 8½" x 11" sequence pictures (five for each story)
  • 48 large-print sentence strips per story (six for each story)
  • a teacher manual with:
  • two-day lesson plans for each story
  • take-home page with mini-story pictures for each story
  • teaching techniques and adaptations for nonverbal children
  • progress chart

You can easily adapt the lessons and materials to meet the needs of individuals, small groups, or an entire class. The lessons are infused with teaching techniques especially for children with autism and PDD.

The activities include:

  • describing the people, places, and things in the story pictures
  • learning new vocabulary concepts

  • answering a wh- question and choosing the story ending
