There are two student worksheets for each of nine animals, totaling eighteen worksheets. Each worksheet has four variations, and there is a ready-to-go lesson plan for each one! There are also two sentence-building exercises for each animal theme, which will build students’ observation skills and help them transform those skills into conversation and written language. In addition to the step-by-step lesson plans, Joseph provides a detailed description of what the lessons will look and feel like in the classroom, complete with valuable, first-hand advice. In the back, you’ll find an appendix with numerous suggestions for complementary activities for each animal theme, so you can supplement on the “off” days with art projects, music, books, and videos. There is even a section containing Data-Collection Sheets, assessment forms that will help you record students’ progress, per IEP standards.

Winner

Winner, Michelle Garcia.
Sticker strategies : practical strategies to ensure social thinking and organization / Michelle Garcia Winner. 2nd ed. Think Social Publishing, 2010.

Description: "The idea ... is that once a student has learned a strategy for overcoming behaviors that may be causing him or her problems, ... the instructor sticks the strategy sticker in a flip notebook. The student carries the flip book with him/her throughout the day. With the flip book, the student can easily and discretely refer to the strategies s/he already learned to solve problems with independence. The result is fewer behavioral breakdowns and classroom disruptions, while teaching self-reliance and problem-solving anytime, anywhere.
This is a great tool for a student that recognizes his/her weaknesses and is motivated to improve. This tool is not effective for students that either don’t realize that they need improvement or who aren’t motivated to help themselves. While originally developed for use with students with social cognitive learning challenges (the higher end of the autism spectrum, ADHD, NLD, etc.), these strategies can easily be applied to any child who needs that strong visual reminder which is a much more powerful teacher than an adult’s 'nag.'"--Publisher's website.

The player is able to play digital-talking books (DTBs) structured in ANSI/NISO Z39.86-2002, DAISY 2.02, or CEA-2003 formats. The player can play audio files stored as AMR-WB+, MPEG I/Layer 3 (MP3) and RIFF WAV format, either as part of a talking book or as stand-alone audio files. ... The user operates the player using a number of buttons located on the top surface. In addition several player functions occur automatically in response to patron actions or inactions. The player automatically powers on and gives an audible greeting when the patron plugs the power cord into a live AC power outlet. When powered on, the player will start or resume the playing of a DTB automatically when the cartridge is inserted into the player. When operating on battery power and not playing a book, the player will turn off after 30 minutes of inactivity."--Manual.
