Materials: Single Message Devices, Speech Generating Devices & Individual Tactualized/Brailled Words
Read the whole sentence to the group and give them the opportunity to say it in their head. Tell them a group of students are going to get a chance to “be the sentence.”
Pick and line up students. (There should be one student for each word in the sentence.)
Use single message devices as needed.
Teacher can reread the sentence to the group a couple times and ask:
Who has the first word?…
Read the sentence together. Does it make sense? If the sentence does not make sense, compare and contrast it to the chart or second sentence strip and have students move to try again.
Encourage the students with single message devices to chime in.
Help them to line up in the proper order and have them say the sentence.
Can repeat with a couple sentences.
