What’s included?

Parent Handouts

  • Lists of single words and early word combinations to target during reading, repeated readings, and doing the included activities in this packet! Share these informative handouts with parents so they can learn how to encourage single words and early word combinations while reading Goodnight Moon and performing the activities in this book.
  • In COLOR and BLACK AND WHITE – your preference! 

Thematic Vocabulary Cards

  • Colorful picture cards of some of the vocabulary words included in the book. Hide these cards in a sensory bin or somewhere in your house and have your child try to find them. Scavenger hunts are so much FUN! You can also work on improving your child’s ability to listen and follow directions by asking your child to listen to your directions. For instance, “The mouse is on the table” The moon is under the couch” Or “The kitten is in the basket.

Puzzle Cards

  • Large puzzle cards that you and your child can put together while saying the words. Print pages 12 to 15 on card stock and laminate for extra durability. Help your child put these puzzles together while naming the pictured objects or animals. Use self-talk and parallel-talk while putting the puzzles together. See the cheat sheet in the resource library at for more language elicitation and modeling techniques. 

Play dough Activity Cards

  • *Play dough is NOT included in this activity 
  • Print and laminate each sheet. Then, cut out each card. Shuffle the cards and place in a pile with the pictures facing down. Have the child turn over a card. Encourage the child say to “Good night, _________(and the name of the item) while tucking it in with a pretend blanket made from play dough.

Say, Color, and Display Coloring Sheets - PRINT AND GO

  • These coloring sheets contain pictures of the target words for your child, student, or client to color. They are unique because there is a visual cue for the first sound of the pictured word. For instance, the lips are together for the picture of the mouse. This cues children to say the word by putting their lips together. Such visuals can help your toddler see how to make the first sound in the word. Coloring these pictures is a wonderful way to intentionally target the vocabulary in the book.

Search and Find Activity Sheet - PRINT AND GO

  • A fun and simple way to interact with the vocabulary words. Available in black and white and in color.
