Rosie's Walk!

I recently started working with a new private client who has a preposition goal. I love using stories that help reach a target so Rosie's Walk by Pat Hutchins
 immediately came to mind when I was planning my activities for the week with him. 
After I decide on a story to use with a student, Pinterest is always my first stop! I found two free downloads that had some great graphics and props to use with the story. You can download one here and the other here. I used a combination of photos from each website. As we read the story, I let him take Rosie (on a stick!) and act out the story. He moved Rosie around the pond, over the haystack, under the beehives, etc. This was a great way to work on preopsitions! After the story was over we played a little Simon Says with Rosie!
Here is a picture of one of my students at my school acting out the story! She is making Rosie go through the fence! 
You may remember, last Friday I posted about an app that I have been using to create vocabulary activities with. If you missed it, you can check it out here! I also created a vocabulary activity for Rosie's Walk. I even got real creative and had one of my older students with artic goals record the words/ prompts for me!

Have an amazing weekend! Don't forget to check back in frequently next week for Phonological Process Week! 
Happy BHSM!
