This is a comprehensive language companion to use with the story "Let it Fall" by Maryann Cocca-Leffler. There are several activities you can use to target Fall vocabulary and the seasons, without the book too!

The packet includes:
Pages 3-5: Compare and contrast seasons
use page 4 as a branching strategy to have students match vocabulary words to the season(s) they belong with on page 3
Pages 6-8: Sequence the story with the choice of 2 sequencing mats.
Pages 9-12: Target Vocabulary found in the story
Includes a matching worksheet for homework/ extra practice.
Pages 13-14: Concrete “WH” Questions targeting seasons with matching answers..
Pages 15-18: Higher-order Language Questions.
Use page 15 and print multiple copies as a “mat” for each student. If they answer the questions correctly, they place the card on the same image. The first student to fill up their mat wins!
Pages 19-24: Articulation Cards R, S, L (initial, medial and final)
Can use with the same mat on page 15 as a reinforcer.
Or have students find their word in the story for extra articulation and phonemic awareness practice.
