This collection of EIGHT receptive and expressive language flip books is perfect for students from elementary to early middle school. Each of the 8 books in this set contains an original short story around which the language (and artic!) activities below are centered. While it will obviously vary between therapists and groups, I rarely use more than one of the 8 books book per session, which means that this set will last you a whole unit if you want it to!
Asking WH Questions
Students are prompted to ask WH questions
about details from the story.
-Students are asked to answer WH questions
by recalling information about details in the story.
-Students are provided with an idiom
in each story and asked to determine its meaning.
See below for a list of idioms included in this specific set.
One entire double-page of the flip book is devoted to vocabulary. In this section, the following skills are targeted through vocabulary present in the story or other related words.
-Multiple meaning words
-Comparing and Contrasting
-Describing / Attributes
*Additionally, each story contains 6 targeted vocabulary words which students are asked to define
Using included coloring sheets, students are asked to follow multi-step
(2-step or 3-step) directions and/or directions embedded with concepts, including: spatial, temporal, and quantitative concepts
Sequencing and Past Tense
Using the sequencing tile cards which fit right into the flip book, students will sequence
the 4 parts of the story in the correct order. They will then retell the story using the past tense
Each book provides a list of words in each story with the following speech sounds: R, S/Z, TH, SH/CH/J, and L
*Please know that this product is a complement to the Critical Thinking and Higher-Level Language Flip Books of the same theme. The stories are the same, but adjusted as needed to be appropriate for age-level, and the two comprehension activities are the same in both flip books. However, all other activities are different and it very possible to use both flip books for different skills.
Idioms included in this set:
•A Thorn in the Side
•Under the Weather
•Down to Earth
•Ray of Sunshine
•In the Dark
•Beat Around the Bush
