This is an activity pack for “Are You My Mother”. This pack meant for the more linguistically challenged students and is perfect for speech/OT or speech/special ed collaboration. This is nice for integrating literacy and hand-on activities.
I typically read “Are You My Mother" with the kids and have them practice answering questions, state the repeatable line, and name characters using the manipulative icons. I then take another day to read “Looking for Mother Bird" (reduced language version of 'Are You My Mother?" is included with this packet) which reinforces the main concept (Looking for Mother) and reinforces animal and vehicle names. With the teacher or OT, we work on a craft (in this case it's a bird’s nest activity). There is also a construction vehicles interactive book. With reading, re-reading, and questions/activities, I spend two weeks on this unit if I work with the kids twice a week. Please note: the book "Are You My Mother?" is NOT included in this packet. You will need to obtain that elsewhere. It's a classic book available at most stores and libraries.
