Target Vocabulary Core: Stop He/she Fringe: Car Ball Dog Fast/slow Boy Balloon Girl Sled
Teaching Ideas Teach the target vocabulary first. Before using with your student, preview the animations to best support communication opportunities. Read the book together; ask questions that support use of the target vocabulary (the idea is NOT for the student to copy icon sequences). The adult should maintain control of the mouse to produce the action. Use a 5-second time delay before transitioning to the next slide to allow the student time to respond to the animation. Provide a prompt, such as “Tell me what Blaze did,” to support responses. Skip articles like “the” and “a” until student has mastered the core vocabulary. Look up other words; pivot off the core vocabulary to include fringe (i.e., “Stop car,” “Stop sled”).
I like to make things STOP! Hi, my name is Blaze!
H Help me as I fly around the Earth. Help me make things STOP !
