Happy Spring Students and Families!
Here are my recommendations for Spring Themed stories you, and your child can read together to target speech-language skills.
1.) Rain Song, by Lezlie Evans: This my favorite to read during the rainy month of April. This book targets verbs, prepositions, and clothing to wear during rain storms. I also like to use sensory play while reading this book. I use a fan for the wind, a drum for thunder, and bin full of water to splash within to practice the verbs used within the book.
2.) What Will Hatch? by Jennifer Ward: This book targets the WH question "what", early prediction skills, and animals that hatch from eggs. It is a perfect book to read during the springtime with all the life blooming around us!
3.) Up in the Garden and Down in the Dirt, by Kate Messner: I love this book to target the sequencing of planting, learning about insects/animals, learning about plants/vegetables that grow in gardens, patience/waiting, locations outside, and seasons. Spring is a great time to plant a garden.
I hope everyone is enjoying this warm weather coming up!
