Speech With The Very Hungry Caterpillar!

Spring has sprung! I love this time of year and I love all of the "springy" themed books and activities that can be used in therapy! If you missed my post a few weeks ago, I shared some spring time favorites! You can check that out here. One of my favorites to use this time of year is The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.
This classic story is perfect to teach all about growing and changing! What's even better is when we can throw some speech and language goals in the mix! 
One of my favorite activities to use for story sequencing goals is a "story in a bag!" I found some story cards on Pinterest (they are everywhere- just search "the very hungry caterpillar sequencing.") I decided to use black and white pictures so the kids can color them and personalize their story bag!

After they were finished coloring, we cut them apart and numbered them. Since they are numbered, the kids have an easier time retelling the story in the correct sequence. I love sending these bags home for homework. The kids love sharing their bags with their family and I love extra practice at home!
Let me introduce our Speech-a-Pillars!! I cannot take credit for these, I saw tons of similar ones floating around Pinterest... but aren't they cute? I pre-cut the circles and target words (simply to save time) and let the kids have fun creating their caterpillars. I printed the words from the Mommy Speech Therapy blog.
What's your favorite spring time activity?
