This item is for use with the book “Apple Trouble” by Ragnhild Scamell. **Book not included.**

Contents & Directions:

Pages 3-4: Story Props. Print and laminate pages. Cut out the object pictures. Use Velcro or Repositionable glue tabs to stick objects to Hedgehog as you tell the story. You can also remove the items as the goat eats them.

Pages 5-8: Prepositions/Positional Concepts. Print and laminate. Have students describe the location of the hedgehog (on pages 5 and 6) using prepositions and/or positional words. You can also use the word cards (pages 7 and 8) for a matching activity.

Pages 9-11: Vocab Cards & Character Mat. Print and laminate. You can use these for vocabulary naming/reinforcement, story sequencing and retell, or use the character mat to identify characters from the story.

Pages 12-15: Negatives. Print and laminate. Ask students the questions on the cards to work on understanding of negatives.

Pages 16-18: Story Retelling Pages. Laminate and cut out the circles on page 16. Have students retell the story using the mat on page 17. Alternately, use the completed mat (page 18) for students who need extra support.

Page 19: Game Board. Use as a reinforcement activity to accompany any articulation and/or language target.

Pages 20-22: Pronouns/Categories. Print and laminate the pages. Cut out the girl/boy hedgehog. Have students draw two cards and give one card to each hedgehog. They can then generate sentences using pronouns (e.g., “She has an apple,” “The apple is hers.”) and/or categories (e.g., “She has a fruit, he has a dish”).
