[DIGITAL BOOK / Telepractice & In-Person]
“Most nights, Blake crawls into bed and falls asleep in a heap, never making a peep. Some nights, though, Blake tosses and turns, trying his best but still yearning for rest.
Blake thinks, I’m trying and trying to do my best, but with my eyes wide open I can’t get rest.
Then, he remembers his mother’s advice: ‘Blake. Try this, but don’t think twice. Just count some sheep and you’ll fall asleep.’”
Help Blake count sheep as you practice “sh” at the phrase level (i.e. one sheep, two sheep, three sheep…) over multiple trials!
BONUS activity, “Dreaming with Blake”, included! Sequential, spatial, and quantity concepts are embedded within Blake’s dreams about sheep in this 53 page bonus activity.
CLINICAL TARGET MASH-UP: This is a great activity for targeting articulation of “sh” in phrases (i.e. “_____ sheep”); however, that is just the tip of iceberg! Target rhyming within fun refrains throughout the narrative activity. A variety of concepts are embedded within both the primary and bonus activity. Concepts include: colors, sizes, sequential, spatial, and quantity concepts.
