Use this resource as a part of your literacy program in your special education class, or with students who need differentiated instruction. Stone Soup is a classic old story with a great moral about sharing. You are going to read this story to your class or group for 4 days, giving them a different purpose to listen each day.
There is a picture communication board for non-verbal students to use.
There are 24 vocabulary cards. Make 2 copies, laminate, and have students play “Memory”-type and “Go-Fish”-type card games with them. There is also a “Make Stone Soup” game with a special spinner to play at the end of the week - or whenever it fits with your schedule.
There are BINGO-type cards and a set of picture Dominoes for reinforcing vocabulary, too.
There is a wordless picture book for students to finish to re-tell the story. They can write in text (an option for students who can write even one word per page), cut & paste in sentence strips, or cut apart the sentence strips into individual words to paste in.
