Yay! It’s Wild About Books Wednesday AKA Hump Day! Each Wednesday, I discuss how you can use a specific book in therapy. Books are such versatile therapy tools! I often use the same book for all of my language groups, because I can find ways to target nearly any goal. I can never promote literature-based therapy enough! If you’re a blogger, I’d love if you would join the Wild About Books Linky! I’m always on the hunt for new books and fresh ideas! Just use the picture at the bottom of the post to link back to me.
This week I’m featuring one of my favorite Halloween-themed books, Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson. I love this book so much that I absolutely had to make a book companion to compliment my therapy sessions.
Witches N’ Wizards: Another cute card game that addresses pronouns (he, she, they, and it)! Students draw a card and fill in the blank with the correct pronoun. If students find a card that says “the frog found your wand,” they get an extra turn!
Here’s a peek:
Potions N’ Spells: This game was designed to foster receptive vocabulary. Student draws a card and has to solve the riddle to figure out what the spell or potion will turn them into! If student solves the riddle they get to keep the card and if the wind blows away their hat, they’ll lose all their cards! Student with the most cards wins!
