Autism & PDD Picture Stories & Language Activities: Spring by Patricia Snair Koski

Ages: Ages 3-8 Grades: PreK-3

Matt and Molly take your students on springtime adventures in eight engaging stories that teach communication and literacy skills. Familiar characters, predictable routines, and fun antics keep students engaged.

The theme-based stories and activities target skills in:

narrative language
vocabulary and concepts

sequencing and predicting
determining what's missing
reading comprehension

The program includes eight stories with:

four full-color, 8½" x 11" sequence pictures for each story (32 total pictures)
four large-print sentence strips per story that students match to the correct illustrations (32 sentence strips for each program)
six wh- and how word cards, a Yes card, and a No card for the question-asking activities

teaching suggestions
a list of easy-to-find props for role-playing each story sequence
