Can you believe it is already March? Time is flying but that means another holiday is upon us... St. Patrick's Day!! That also means it is time to make our therapy sessions festive. One of my favorite books to use in therapy is
I love all the "old lady" books and so do my students. What I love even more is the ability to work on therapy goals while reading a fun book. I created a packet of speech & language story extension activities to use with this book.
Check it out!
The first activity included in this packet is a vocabulary kit. This includes vocabulary cards- with both the words and pictures, and a giant "Old Lady Head." Have your students "feed" the lady as she swallows the items in the story.
The next activity included is a student story sequencing activity. Have your kids cut out the pictures and sequence the story on their own. This is great for story retelling skills and articulation carryover.
Next up is a cover the dots activity. Use chips, candy, or have your students color in the circles as they answer a story question or practice an articulation target.
The 4th activity included in the packet lets your students have fun coloring while they work on vocabulary skills. As you are reading the story aloud, have your students color in the items as they appear in the story. This is a great activity to keep them engaged and being active listeners!
I love this story scavenger hunt! Give your kiddos a copy of the story and let them search the pages for words that contain their target speech sound! When they are finished, send this sheet home with them for homework :)
I loved creating mini books when I was in school, so of course I created one for this packet!
Next up is a prepositions activity. Have your students describe where the clover is in the picture or read aloud the multiple choice option on the card.
I can follow directions! There is another sheet included in this packet with directions for your kids to follow (color the bird red, color the pot orange, etc) or you can make up your own directions based on your students' needs.
Last but not least, comparing and contrasting!! Have your students compare and contrast target words and characters from the story. This is a great way to work on common core standards in the therapy room!
I had a lot of fun creating this activity with my students in mind. I hope that this packet can help many of your kiddos reach their goals as well. You can download a copy of this book companion in my Teacher Pay Teachers store here or try to win a copy below!
