I am a huge fan of the "Night before..." books by Natasha Wing. The series is patterned after the "The Night before Christmas" with books available for St. Patrick's Day, Valentine's Day, Halloween, etc. Keep an eye out! There are more speech-language packets coming soon!
For now, available for download is a 45-page speech & language companion pack to accompany "The Night before Summer Vacation" by Natasha Wing. (Page total excludes the title page, table of contents, and acknowledgement page at the end.)
NOTE: This packet does NOT include the original book on which the packet is based and I am in no way affiliated with the author. This companion packet only contains activities to accompany the book for use in speech-language therapy settings.
Included are the following components:
*9 cards for sequencing and story retell
*48 cards containing pairs of rhyming words with which to match or to generate rhymes
*12 cards containing key vocabulary in the book
*12 matching definition cards for the key vocabulary cards
*13 word wall display cards for the key vocabulary
*156 cards of words with which to sort into parts of speech (nouns, verbs, adjectives, & prepositions)
*4 mats on which to sort the parts of speech cards
*5 word stimulus lists for articulation practice of targets (s/s blends, l/l blends, sh/ch, r/vocalic r/r blends, & k/g)
*An open-response writing prompt to which students can generate a persuasive writing piece, including a shamrock graphic organizer to organize details and ideas, and a page with lines on which students can write their final drafts
*An open-response writing prompt to which students can generate an informational writing piece, including a second shamrock graphic organizer on which to organize details or ideas, and the page with lines on which students can write their final drafts
*2 Roll and Color pages - Students roll the dice to see who can get their leprechaun colored first on the first page, and on the second, can roll and color their pot of gold and rainbow while practicing recognition of ordinal numbers
*A black-and-white coloring page with a leprechaun's pot of gold on which students can record up to 10 key vocabulary words or 10 target words for articulation practice at home
*An open-use board game with a St. Patrick's Day theme, which can be used for this companion packet or any St. Patrick's themed activity!
