A book companion to one of my all-time favorites!!

-Eric Carle's 10 Little Rubber Ducks

What's included:

* Simplified story - 12 colored & 12 B/W pages

* Receptive identification activities - 10 colored & 10 B/W pages

* Discussion/comprehension questions (6)

* Parent letter

The story is designed to naturally develop narrative skills while also targeting syntax, grammar, and articualtion. Specifically . . .

*Sequence words (first, second)

*Past tense (floated, fell)

*Attributes (little, rubber)

*Vocabulary (pelican, octopus)

*Consonant blends (/fl/).

Receptive identification activities target understanding of concepts such as:

*Size (biggest, longest)

*Quantity (most)

*Attribute (e.g., Which animal screeches/growls?)

*Negation (e.g., Which animal does not fly?)

Simple and repetitive stories such as these are perfect for early language learners and readers alike.

For the colored pages I print (landscape), laminate, punch a hole in the corner and hook with a ring. The pages can then be unhooked, mixed up, and sequenced.

I print the B/W pages 2 to a page (landscape) to send home with students. They love coloring the pictures, and retelling the story with their families.

(Eric Carle's 10 Little Rubber Ducks is not included. Book should be purchased separately:)

I hope you and your students enjoy this book companion as much as we have! If so I'd love to hear from you:)
