Using books to provide speech therapy just makes sense since you can target articulation, phonology, language, and fluency. 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 Valentine’s day books!
SOUND SYSTEMS: Target velars, fricatives, glides, and consonant clusters easily with this repetitive story! Students can even practice carryover of their sounds (k, g, s, sh, l, r, clusters) targeting language concepts.
LANGUAGE: Target identification and labeling of basic vocabulary found in the print and in the pictures, 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 girl that makes Valentine’s day cards for her friends!
LANGUAGE: Target vocabulary building with adjectives, adverbs, and irregular verbs. You can also practice answering wh-questions and using inference skills.
SOUND SYSTEMS: Target velars, fricatives, glides, and consonant clusters (k, g, s, sh, l, r, clusters) easily with this story about two best friends who want to give each other a kiss.
LANGUAGE: Target prepositions by finding the bird in each picture, work on semantic features (function/description) for common items, 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.
