Thank you for purchasing Time to Get Dressed by Panda Speech® LLC. I created this book to help my speech therapy students but is perfect to use with any young child. The target age range is 2-5 years old depending on skill and interest level. 

 

Your students will love lifting the flaps to help Maya find the clothes she needs. This book targets positional vocabulary, increasing utterances, yes/no questions, clothing vocabulary, and more! It has two interactive elements to keep your student engaged

 (lift-able flaps and moveable pictures).

Read the book with your child or student. At the top of each page, it asks the child to look in the laundry basket to see if it is a piece of clothing Maya needs. Prompt the child to lift the flap. There is a visual reminder on each page of what clothing items Maya needs. They will then answer yes/no (verbally or by pointing to the symbols on the page). The child will match the clothing picture symbol (move-able square images) to the box in the phrase and verbalize the sentence (“I found a _____”). Tapping the boxes as they say it (model when appropriate) encourages verbalization! As the students find each clothing,  they will notice Maya getting dressed on each following page. Use the following supplemental worksheets/activities if desired.

Supplemental materials (free downloads). All available in one downloadable PDF below

 

Picture supported comprehension page: Use a bingo dotter, marker, or crayon to color the answers to the questions. This is a great follow up activity.

Cut & Paste Craft: 2 Versions! You can use these while reading the book or afterwards to reinforce the vocabulary. 

  • Maya and clothing: Like a cut & paste paper doll. This is fun for dressing her as you read the book! 

  • Laundry basket and clothing. Paste all the clothes in the basket as you find them in the book. 

 

Read & Color: I use this page as a reinforcer for the vocabulary. After each page in the book, the student will color the clothing items they found on the page. 

 

Maya and clothing full color manipulatives: These are full color printables that you can print out, laminate, and play while using the book. Like a paper doll Maya!

Design a t-shirt: Bonus page where students can draw or color a t-shirt design.
