Making A Paper Bag Book is an idea inspired by the work of Dr. Jean Feldman. While at one of her conferences, she explained how to make a backpack out of a paper bag/lunch sack. I took this idea and changed it up a little bit to create an activity for kids to use in speech therapy and/or at home for practice of the /k/ sound.
Directions and pictures are included to show you how to use a brown lunch bag to make a book. Picture cards are included representing words with a /k/ sound. You will will insert the picture cards into the brown bag to make a book. Students can then flip through the book to practice words with a /k/ sound.
Materials you will need to provide: brown or white lunch bag (small or large,) pipe cleaner, hole puncher, glue stick
Appropriate for grades Preschool to 1st grade.
*23 picture cards with words underneath, 23 picture cards without the words. Use either set to place in the brown bag book
*All cards represent a word with a /k/ sound in initial, medial, or ending position
Other Activities Included:
*Three sorting mats: one for words with initial , one for medial, and for final /k/ sound
*Have students sort the picture cards without the words onto the correct mat. They should say the word first and then sort the card
*Make a sentence mat: Students read or repeat the sentence starter and place one of the picture and word cards at the end to complete the sentence. Students who cannot yet read, can repeat after you. This will work for all but one card ( Luke).
*Talk about how a period needs to be added to the end of each sentence.
*A great reinforcer of 1-1 matching and sight words.
*Other ideas: Use the book with sight words, the alphabet, vowels, to retell a story, shapes, numbers. The possibilities are endless!
