Making Sea Turtle Apple
I downloaded the directions here: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/161003755403659210/ and hit up Costco for apples, grapes and raisins. We added peanut butter to the apple to help the grapes stay in place.
As I have mentioned before there is a wide variety of students at the school where I work. For some students the language lesson was following directions (we used a recipe template from Boardmaker as a visual schedule), others gave directions to peers (oral narration), and for other students we used these story books for:
1) Sequencing- http://www.pinterest.com/pin/161003755403582565/
2) Reading or oral comprehension- http://www.pinterest.com/pin/161003755403582567/ .
The narratives can easily be adapted for factual "wh" questions, inferencing (why did the hare run out of breath, why was the tortoise able to continue), problem solving (what could the hare have done differently, what would you do if you were running this race), or perspective taking (why do you think the hare was so sure he would win, how does that make the tortoise feel).
After we read the stories and made our sea turtle we got to eat them up!
If you try this let us know how it goes!
