Happy Wild About Books Wednesday! Each Wednesday, I highlight a new book and talk about different ways that it can be used in speech/language therapy. Books are so versatile! They are amazing tools to boost language skills and they also make lesson planning a breeze! If you’re a blogger, please consider linking up to share your own ideas! Just link back to me using the image below:
There have been many amazing SLPs linking up lately! Thank you all for linking up! I’ve learned about so many new books!
This week, I’m talking about another Halloween favorite – Where’s My Mummy by Carolyn Crimi. I recently blogged about it in my Halloween BOO-ks list! This book is so cute – it really deserves its own post!
This is a tale of a brave little mummy who gets lost during a game of hide and shriek! As he tries to find his Mummy, he runs across a wide range of scary creatures! He runs into a skeleton, a glob, and Dracula! He informs each of them that he’s not scared…. until he runs into an innocent little mouse! Mama Mummy scoops baby Mummy up just in time and saves the day.
There are so many ways to use this book in therapy! Here are just a few ideas:
1) Where Questions – Students can practice asking and answering where questions (and other WH ?s)
2) Describing – Practice describing all the creatures that baby Mummy meets
3) Sequencing – This book is perfect for targeting sequencing! It has a clear-cut set of events. I created a cute little story map to provide my students with visual cues and I’m sharing it with you!
You can snag this story map by clicking HERE. Please, enjoy! I hope this print n’ go activity can save you some time during this busy time of year! I don’t know about anyone else, but I am swimming in paperwork.
Have a wonderful day! Thanks for visiting my blog! 🙂
