The curriculum instruction method gives detailed explanations of both the visuals and the words on each sign. A perfect teaching tool for the inclusive classroom, the guide includes discussion activities and charts for the teacher to record the various places in the community where each sign is located. Students who are nonreaders or who have limited reading skills can rely on visuals on the survival signs to determine each sign's meaning. The overall purpose of the program is to prepare students of all abilities to follow the directions on common community survival signs. This method allows many students to travel safely in the community.


Teacher's Binder

A sturdy three-ring binder contains a two-page teaching guide for each of the 40 outdoor and 40 indoor survival signs. The Guide also includes discussion activities and a reproducible Community Trip Record Chart for the teacher to record the various places in the community where each sign is located.

Survival Signs Posters

These 40 double-sided posters cover 80 common signs found both inside and on the outside of buildings such as schools, workplaces, stores, malls, office complexes, private homes, hospitals, and doctors' offices. PCI has authentically reproduced these signs to represent as closely as possible the actual signs found in the community. Many of the signs reflect the colors individuals need to know for safety reasons (e.g., red for danger, yellow for caution, etc.)

The posters are appropriate for use with pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students; elementary-age school students of all abilities; middle and high school students with developmental disabilities; adults with developmental disabilities; middle and high school students with learning differences; adults in "life skills" reading programs; and all ages in English as a second-language classes.

The 9" x 12" signs are printed on heavy card stock and are ideal for inclusive teaching settings and peer-buddy groups. They feature international graphic symbols to assist individuals who have limited reading skills in learning to identify them. They also make learning easier for visual learners. A reproducible Pre/Post Test Assessment is included with complete teacher instructions in each set.
