Survival Signs Worksheets

High-interest/Low-level reading: Written practice in learning the functional meaning of important signage
Item # Product Description Photo Price


This collection of worksheets, developed by PCI's Janie Haugen-McLane, gives individuals written practice in learning the functional meaning of important signage at home, at work, and in the community. The easy-to-follow worksheets feature large, detailed illustrations of the signs to help participants with limited reading skills.

The 200 reproducible blackline masters are a perfect "hands-on" complement to the entire Survival Signs Curriculum, sold separately. Effective with students of all ages, the worksheet format helps visual learners, and those with limited reading and/or comprehension skills, learn to recognize the picture symbols and the written words on signs.

Divided into two tabbed sections, the sturdy three-ring binder contains the worksheets that cover the signs in groups of five. As participants become familiar with the first group, additional signs are added to the worksheet program. After 10 signs have been covered, review worksheets mix the survival signs for more challenging practice. This process is continued until all 80 signs have been taught and reviewed.

The worksheet formats help participants learn to recognize both the international symbols and/or the written words on the survival signs. Participants are asked to perform tasks such as Match the Sign, Circle the Sign, Circle the Word, and Complete the Sign. Focusing on the picture symbols helps visual learners and individuals with little or no reading skills understand the meaning of signs when in the community.

Complete instructions on "Getting Started" take teachers through a simple step-by-step process for getting the most out of the materials. An Answer Key is also included.
