How To Use Interactive Posters To Build Concepts And Language

My kiddos need LOTS of hands on activities in order to learn new concepts. Interactive posters are great for seasonal or theme concepts that you can use year after year. Adding in language building components with these posters is super easy... WIN!

Like interactive books, my students LOVE interactive posters! They are naturally more attentive and focused because of all of the hands on opportunities. Here are some of the ways that we use interactive posters during our plants and garden unit


Here is the poster (below) we use to work on plant parts and the associated vocabulary. After you have gone over the different parts of the plant and the vocabulary, you are able to add in some receptive and expressive tasks.

Each part is laminated and attached with Velcro, so you can individualize the poster for students. You can change the difficulty by adjusting how many pieces the student needs to put up on the poster.

Examples of the language tasks we do with this poster:

  *Hand out all of the parts of a poster to the students. Ask questions such as, "Who as a leaf?" or "Who has the plant part that goes underground?"

  *Keep students engaged when it isn't their turn by asking students questions about peers. For example, "Who put the stem up?"


With the poster below, we worked on the process from seed to plant. Again, each piece of the poster is laminated and attached by Velcro. This poster is great because you can work on a variety of skills: ordinal numbers, sequencing, comprehension, etc.

These posters are fairly easy to make and pair nicely with our interactive books. As a bonus, they offer SOOOO many opportunities to practice language while still targeting core concepts.
