Utilizing the power of visual strategies, beginning readers learn to associate pictures with words. Students move original, Velcro-backed drawings to match, identify, label, sequence, and create sentences while learning to read! Children can also use the pictures to answer simple questions, follow directions, identify common objects/actions, respond to yes/no questions, and general language development.
This book teaches students to match, identify, label, and sequence numbers 1-12. There are 4 picture pages and 12 sentence pages from which students learn to read number words one through twelve and simple nouns (ex: six suns). Quantity concepts are taught by matching number to picture and picture to number. (ex: Have the student put the number “2” card on the picture that has 2 “shoes” or the student picks a picture card, counts the items and places it on the appropriate number card.) Simple math activities can also be performed. (ex: Using the picture cards: 2 shoes + 3 pigs= ? Answer: the number card 5) or (ex. Using the number cards: 3 + 4=? Answer: the student finds the picture card of 7 balloons)
