Work or Play? Have fun learning & matching functional vocabulary and completing carry over pages to reinforce the concept! Is it for playing or working? (Toys vs. School Supplies)

These books are great for: functional vocabulary, increasing MLU (mean length of utterance), matching skills, expressive/receptive language skills following directions, and listening skills. They were designed to be simple and functional without a lot of distracting images or text. I hope you find them useful! I love using them in speech therapy sessions! These would also be great for pk/k, special education, or ESL! Many children will recognize the functional vocabulary in these books and get excited to use the symbols and pieces!

Assembly Required: Please note: No physical product is included. You will need to print the book page, laminate, and assemble pieces with velcro. Make sure you understand this BEFORE purchasing. Assembly instructions included in then file. 

How I use this book: I point to the large picture on the page and see if they can identify it (I use the prompts: “what is this” or “this is a ____”). I lay out a choice of 3 images (you can use more or less depending on ability) and have them find the matching picture and place it in the blank square on the page. Next I ask them “What is a _____ used for?” “ work or play?” (while holding up or pointing to the symbols). The student will then place the correct symbol in the blank square. After that I have them repeat the sentences on the page while pointing to the symbols. “I play with a puzzle.” If the student is limited-verbal, I have them point to the symbols while I verbalize the sentence for a model or have then tell you with their AAC device (again, providing a model when needed).

There are 2 scene pages for the children to interact with. Ask the child to put the work items on the table and the play items on the carpet. This is a great carry over activity to reinforce the concept! This also adds a fun element to the book!

I also have 5 of my functional vocabulary matching books in a bundle for a discount! Scroll down to the right to see the bundle. The bundle also includes a digital BOOM Card version
