Love is in the air this Valentine's Day!
In this hilarious twist on a traditional fairy tale, Rapunzel repeatedly misunderstands the handsome Prince's requests to throw down her hair. Instead, he is pelted with all sorts of silly objects as she tries to figure out what he is asking for--like "dirty socks" instead of "locks", and a "canteloupe" instead of a "rope". Eventually Rapunzel thinks she hears him right, and there is a happy ending for everyone--including the maid!
This 38-page unit is meant to be used along with the book by Leah Wilcox,
although many of the activities can also be used without the book. I have created 2 levels of difficulty for many of the activities: Level 1-less advanced students, Level 2-more advanced students.

Speech Therapy Update Form:
These Session Updates are a great way to connect with parents and encourage more involvement in practicing skills at home. I send these home after every therapy session to let the parents know that I saw their child today and what we worked on. There is also a section for homework practice and their behavior in speech therapy.
