Since many of my students have difficulty talking, they have communication boards to help them express what they need to say. I made this one to go with our weather chart above. The children can choose 2 weather options and place the cards in the sentence at the top. When I choose someone to answer, they must read me the whole sentence, pointing to each word or picture as they go.
For a few of my students, these pictures are too small and there are too many to look at, at once. I made some bigger pictures for them, that are easier to choose from. We then hold two of them up in front of them so they can make a choice out of the two using their eyes or by pointing.
I also made a weather graph to go in their calendar books with the same co-ordinating pictures. We colour in one or two squares each day and then compare them at the end of the month.
