Try this activity!
1. Download and choose a wordless book. There are two to choose from that are free of charge.
2. Ask your child/student to look at each picture and create their own lines for the story to be recorded. If your child uses an AAC communication device, create the sentences before and then read them aloud as the pictures appear on the screen. To record these sentences efficiently, store each message in a button so the child can press the button each time the picture appears.
3. Attach your Bluebee Pal and make the story interactive! For an interesting activity in the classroom, allow each student to create their own story with the free app. This will give the students an opportunity to hear all different versions of the story with Bluebee Pal as the narrator.
