{Review} Comprehending and Verbalizing Visual Clues

The ability to learn by observation improves social interaction, comprehension, and vocabulary.  This skill affects a child's ability to interact with the world around them.  "Comprehending and Verbalizing Visual Cues" by Great Ideas for Teaching is a fantastic resource that helps a child target this important skill.

This material is designed for children ages 3 1/2 - 7 years old who have difficulty interpreting pictures and events, which subsequently affects their ability to talk about these things.

This book includes 30 2-page lessons that each include a picture sheet with four different pictures of various situations.

The second page in each lesson is the instructor's worksheet.  It includes a basic set of directions, as well as five different questions related to each picture.  (That's 20 questions for each lesson!)  Examples of questions are as follows:

- Is this girl old enough to skate well?  How do you know?
- What is the boy doing?  How do you know?
- Is the ice cream melted?  How do you know?
- Do these children need to be careful?  Why?

What I love about this material:
- It includes 30 different lessons, with 20 different questions for each lesson, for a total of 600 questions!
- I feel like this is a skill that is so often overlooked.  It's great to have a whole book devoted to this skill.
- The actions in the pictures are ones that are very common and are easy to relate to for students.

You can find this awesome resource to target comprehending visual clues for $29.50 HERE!
