➜ These books keep minds engaged and hands busy – Kids love to move the pieces and be in control of the activity!
➜ They are easily adapted to different levels of learners.
➜ Perfect on-the-go therapy tool for traveling SLPs.
➜ They are easily used in mixed groups and from session-to-session.

Target many expressive and receptive language goals (verbs, nouns, pronouns, WH questions, following directions) while learning about community helpers!

The PDF includes the pages to assemble the interactive flip book (example on first thumbnail). The book includes 5 scenes: fire station, police station, medical office (doctor, dentist & veterinarian), post office, and a neighborhood (trash collector & crossing guard). In addition it includes vehicles and objects to go with the scenes. This interactive book is unique because it contains the inside of the community buildings and appropriate scenes – put the fire out with the hose or put the fireman to sleep in his bed. The book allows you to flip through the scenes and move the characters & objects onto the pages keeping little hands busy and engaged to learn.

In addition to the interactive book, the PDF includes in COLOR and BLACK & WHITE:

  • 16 “who” cards
  • 9 “what” cards
  • 9 “when” cards
  • 9 “why” cards
  • “Where” mini-book with fill-in blanks
  • Matching community helpers to their work location worksheet
  • 18 “Who am I?” inference cards
  • 1 reinforcer activity to use with flash cards
  • 1-step, 2-step, and 3-step directions for student to follow using the interactive book
  • Work on categorization skills by sorting people/vehicles/items into correct scenes

You can generalize or implement any of these concepts and more into the interactive flipbook. All activities are in color and black & white.

Assembly of books required. I recommend laminating for durability and one-time creation and using sticky tack for freedom of placement of the people/items for the scene.

“My students absolutely love this resource! Highly recommend this resource. It’s so easy to naturally ask WH-questions while playing with the moveable people and objects. They see it more as a game than doing speech work. One of my students didn’t want to switch to a different activity because it was so engaging!”

“This is a great resource to have for my community helpers theme! The students loved how engaging it was and it is easy to pair with other activities!”
