I have been using the character cards to help my preschool students stay involved while I read the story. I pass out the cards and they have to search for their character as I read the story. They are very attuned and attentive this way! Love the owl dice roll paper too. We are using this to talk about parts of an owl and why they are important. Thanks!!

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  April 10, 2013,  Karin B. asked:
I bought Bear's New Friend: Speech & Language Activities and plan to use it with a wide range of my speech student. I was wondering do any of your Bear books have pictures of each animal? I have a group of DD students and the pictures would be great for them. I have tried to use google images, but I really don't care for any of them.
Also, what activities ( your material) do you like for 3rd grade language?
Have a great day.

On  April 10, 2013Jenn Alcorn answered:
Hi Karin! I just updated the file and added character cards. I had them in the packet for Bear Feels Scared, so it was easy to add :)

I use most of my themed packets across my caseload, differentiating as needed. We have been working a lot of Flying Pigs Figurative Language the past few weeks with their classroom poetry unit. They also really liked the Arctic & Antarctic Animals unit, Sporty Sentences, and they LOVE the Old lady books, so we often use the writing activities with those. If you want more info, please feel free to email me: slpgonewild@gmail.com
