Halloween Books for Literacy-Based Speech Therapy

Halloween is my favorite holiday!  Storytime with books was definitely my first love as a kid!  Using books to provide speech therapy just makes sense to me. I have a lot of favorite books and I organize them by theme, season/holiday, sounds, language concepts, etc… Check out why I love these Halloween books!

SOUND SYSTEMS: Target velars, fricatives, glides, and consonant clusters easily with this cute story!  Students can even practice carryover of their sounds (k, g, s, sh, l, r, clusters) while singing the story back using the tune ‘wheels on the bus’.

LANGUAGE: Target identification and labeling of Halloween vocabulary, work on wh-questions and yes/no questions, and practice sequencing and story retell!

SOUND SYSTEMS: Target velars, fricatives, glides, and consonant clusters (k, g, s, sh, l, r, clusters) easily with this cute story about a little ghost that struggles to say boo! My kids always enjoy this story too since they can relate.

LANGUAGE: Target vocabulary building for verbs such as howling, peering, mocked, bellowed, and mumbled. This is also a perfect book to target prepositions, wh-questions, and sequencing!

SOUND SYSTEMS: Target velars, fricatives, glides, and consonant clusters (k, g, s, sh, l, r, clusters) easily with this story about this family going to a haunted house.

LANGUAGE: Target identification and labeling of Halloween vocabulary, semantic features (function/location) for common items, homophones such as their/there, answering wh-questions, and story retell!

If you do not want to have to go through the books and make your own lists, I have created an easy cheat sheet for articulation words, language concepts to target, and some basic wh-questions you can ask for each book!  You can grab your free cheat sheet below.
