Supportive Materials for I Put My Clothes On

Many materials should be used to support literacy learning, a book being only one of them. To supplement the book created for this website, I Put My Clothes On, several support materials were developed to use with the it. These are only a few examples. Paper dolls were created to provide an opportunity for the child to demonstrate the clothing vocabulary and to concept of 'putting on'. This provides a much needed manipulative component of a literacy lesson. To reinforce cognitive skills of sequencing, requesting, memory, and simple vocabulary, a picture schedule was developed. To support communication during the reading of the book and related activities, a nine cell communication board was developed. These supportive materials are provided here to download and use as appropriate, but you are highly encouraged to go beyond what is here and develop many more. It is hoped that they will stimulate many more ideas.
