Barbara Comments on Story Time

Barbara-photoAgain positioning kids for story time is important. You maximize opportunities for getting the interaction going.

If I'm using a specific book with a particular repetitive story line, I will make up the symbols on Boardmaker (Mayer Johnson) and be sure that everyone has them. Sometimes we let our nonspeaking kids like Ricky choose what line of the story they want their switch to say. We don't always want to decide for them what interests them in a particular story.

Or they can choose comments that they want to make, such as "That's silly, that's scary, etc." If Ricky's having a good day and he can use two switches, we can put two comments on.
