Core and Fringe One Page Activity Boards ~ AAC
Core and Fringe One Page Activity Boards ~ AAC
I created these communication boards for my students who use AAC (augmentative and alternative communication) and also for language modeling during activities. They are convenient one page boards that can be printed, laminated, or put in sheet protectors.
Each board has core vocabulary on the left and activity specific (fringe) vocabularyon the right.
Core Vocabulary: high frequency words that are very versatile and can be used across contexts. Examples: I, you, want, like, go, in etc…
Fringe Vocabulary: topic specific words that can not be used across all contexts: Examples: horse, castle, princess, cupcake etc…
This download comes with over 25 core and fringe vocabulary boards, one expanded core board, one editable core/fringe board, and separate fringe boards. I will be adding more boards as I make them (so this download will grow). Buy soon, the price will increase the bigger it gets!
Activities included: play dough, puzzles, transportation toys, farm animals toys, wild animal toys, play kitchen, sports, potato person toy, and bubbles.
Class boards included: general class, reading, math, art, P.E., music, playground, lunch
Home boards included: general home, watching tv, gardening, meal time
General boards included: colors, feelings, sick/hurt
Editable Boards: I have a board with just the core words on the left and a fillable board on the right (put in your own images/text), a board with both the core/fringe sides blank, and I also have a completely blank board to build your own core/fringe boards from scratch (add your own images and text)
This download contains 5 files: Original Core/Fringe Boards, Core/Fringe Boards with color selections at the bottom, fringe only boards, expanded core board, and editable board
Ideas for use: I keep these boards with the activities (toy cars, farm toys, bubbles, etc..) so they are easy to pull out when we play. They are also great for posting on the wall near the different centers/classes (I hang the PE/Music boards on a hook in those rooms). I have also reduced the size when I print them to keep them on lanyards (at recess, at lunch, or for going in the classroom). I have also included “home” boards that can be sent with the students’ families. When you are introducing the boards—-> always model!
I also included an expanded core board and separated fringe boards (in a separate file in this download). There is even an editable board where you can add your own pictures and text (I recommend subscribing to smarty symbols, they have over 20k symbols/pictures to choose from).
Please see the pictures to see what my core boards look like. Please email me with any questions/concerns BEFORE you buy. If you have suggestions for additional boards, feel free to email them to me! firstname.lastname@example.org
