Winter Snow Interactive Book for Speech therapy
Prep once and you're ready to go with this short book. Snow is an interactive book that has simple, straightforward text to engage your young talkers. Learn turn-taking skills and basic winter vocabulary with one-word or gesture responses.
This book is set up be useful with many language targets by following with a building a snowman activity. Separate pictures for this purpose have been included on page 8. Simply print one copy of the page per student, cut out the parts (or have students cut them out), and assemble snowman. Multiple hats and extra coal are provided to further individualize snowmen. Ideas for language targets include: sequencing building a snowman, parts of a snowman (body parts), winter clothes (for a snowman, or what children would wear to build a snowman), concept of cold.
Page 9 includes manipulatives to use in a group setting if manipulatives are desired for students while reviewing the book, or for sequencing afterwards. Print the page, cut out the desired items, and use during or after reading the book. One idea is to give each student a snowflake and have them “make” a snowball by bringing the clinician their snowflake. After the clinician has all the snowflakes, “pat” them together and present a snowball picture.
