Explorer Symbol Resources

NEW! CALL has created a pack of symbolised resources to accompany the Explorer Pack of Bookbug books, released in 2017.

The Books are:

  • The Bus Is For Us by Michael Rosen and Gillian Tyler
  • The Something by Rebecca Cobb
  • The Crocodile Who Didnít Like Water by Gemma Merino

The symbol resources can be used with pupils with Additional Support Needs and those with communication difficulties as well as children with English as an Additional Language (EAL).

The symbol resources consist of Go Talk 9+ overlays (for recorded speech output) or can simply be printed out and used as low tech symbol boards which the child can point to as they talk about each story. There are also Big Mack switch tops and Little Step switch tops for the repetitive phrases in the story, which can be used by those with complex communication support needs. Vocabulary sheets to go with each board are provided to help parents and staff record and use the appropriate vocabulary for each story.
