Thanksgiving is quickly approaching! I love the holiday season and how festive these few months are. The only thing that stinks about November is that there are only a few weeks between Halloween & Thanksgiving. That means that I only have a few short weeks to squeeze my favorite Thanksgiving books into therapy! So needless to say, as soon as Halloween was over, I quickly retrieved my Thanksgiving books out of storage and got them into my students' hands! First up on our list…
I love using all of the old lady books in therapy because I can target so many goals with them. Of course it goes without saying that the kids adore these books, too. This story in particular always gets the best comments. The kids always comment on how this lady is "so rude!" and how "she needs to stop eating all that food!" If you're looking for a good laugh, ask your students what they would do or say to the lady if she came to their house on Thanksgiving and ate all their food!?
I created a story companion with 11 different activities to help target my students' speech & language goals. This packet targets vocabulary, sequencing, following directions, categories, plurals, compare/contrast, articulation, and more. There's also some open ended activities that you can use to target goals that may not be included in the packet.
The kiddos and I had so much fun with the old lady last week that I want to give a copy of this packet away to one of you!
