Books are a great way to target many different speech and language skills in therapy, particularly for mixed groups! You can use them to target goals such as:
- story retell
- past tense verbs
- identifying problems/solutions
- articulation and phonology
- expanding utterances
- answering WH questions
- and more!
This is one of my new favorite books with a terrific message that change might be scary, but it also can be good! Kevin the Koala stays in his tree all the time because he is scared to try anything new, but in the end, he finds that life on the ground can be ok, too. This was a great book to read at the end of the school year and talk about the changes that my students will be facing in the summer and transitioning to a new grade in the fall. There’s also lots of L and K words in here, too!
This is another book about overcoming your fears. It features a young boy named Jabari who really wants to jump off the diving board, but just isn’t quite ready. It’s got a lot of /dg/ and /s/ blend words in it, as well!
