2021 Planner

Emergent literacy resources in the 2021 Literacy Planner have been developed for students who use Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC) from 3rd grade up to provide access to the content of books often read by their peers. This year’s Planner is a book club theme.

Why a book club? A book club offers readers the chance to make choices about what they read through communication and literacy activities. It also provides opportunities for learning and socialization.
