PrAACtical Peek: Wheels on the Bus
A- A+

We were in a classroom awhile back, supporting a little fellow in circle time, and it just felt like something was missing. Engaging materials and activities? There seemed to be plenty. Schedule? Nope, those were in plain view. Communication devices? They were all within reach of the children who used them.  As we watched the teachers and kids interacting, it seemed like something got forgotten. Then it hit us – song boards! We used to see large visual displays, like this wonderful one made many years ago by a fantastic young clinician, that had fun, interactive elements. We love songboards because they help the children focus and give us added material for building communication opportunities. We’re not sure why songboards aren’t in as many classrooms as they used to be, since they are so helpful in keeping children engaged.


Do you have favorite sources for songboards? Please share so we can check them out.

    You are so right. I have been in high school setting for some years and when I was in elementary the story boards were everywhere – I attended several sessions at conferences on how to make & use them. Thanks for the reminder – can’t wait to share this post.

      Thanks for sharing this, Juanita. Make sure to let them know that the image is interactive-moving your cursor over it shows some hotspots with more information. I was having some fun with ThingLink!
