Children love fall leaves and apples and they are a great way to keep them interested in learning. For this fall unit, I tried to give you a product that can be used for multiple speech, language and literacy goals (52 pages) and is common core aligned for multiple speech, language and reading foundation/phonics skills. It is designed for a Speech Pathologist, Early Intervention teacher, 4k or Kindergarten teacher working with 3-6 year old students. A parent may find it helpful too as it contains clear instructions. As a practicing SLP, I like to embed phonological awareness activities into my therapy activities. In this unit, I provide materials and activities to work on the initial L,R, K,G,P,B,M,F,V sounds, prevocalic /s/ blends, multisyllabic words, final p,b,m,k,g,t,d,f sounds. You will find articulation activities, language activities (wh?, location concepts, sorting) literacy activities (rhyming, uppercase to lowercase letter match, initial sound identification). I have also included black and white options for you. Here's what this unit includes:
Cover, assembly and directions for each activity,
One large fall tree, color, print as many as you need,
One large fall tree, b&w print as many as you need,
Color leaves with pictures representing the following sounds:
Initial F,V,P,B,M,K,G,L,R words, Prevocalic Sm, Sn, Sp, St blends & final p,b,m,k,g
Color apples with pictures representing the following sounds:
Prevocalic Sk,Sw blends, Final t,d,f, Initial L,R and Multisyllabic Words.
One page of blank (color) apples,
One page blank b&w apples,
One page blank color leaves (sort, count, individualize),
One page blank b&w leaves,
25 pages of Uppercase to lowercase pumpkin letter hunt/match for all letters, color,
2 Rhyming sort worksheets b&w,
Your students will love decorating fall trees and working on multiple skills while they have fun! Once you print and laminate applicable pages, you can either adhere Velcro to the tree and leaves, or magnets and use with a cookie sheet.
These activities will work with a fall unit, trees unit, seasons unit, apples unit, pumpkins unit or for individual and/or group therapy.
