This book companion is designed to accompany the book "Where Do Balloons Go?" By Jamie Lee Curtis. I have no affiliation with the author or this book. This book companion contains several activities to target a variety of language goals/objectives including; verb tense (present and past), answering WH questions, basic concepts (as many, same, different), comparing and contrasting, understanding and using adjectives/descriptors, pronouns,and following directions. There is also an open ended game board that can be used to target any speech/language goal/objective. In this packet you will find:
