We’ve seriously been having the BEST week ever in speech. We’ve been getting scary with the Big Green Monster.
The way this book is made it just perfect for our speech and language kids! Repetitive text with engaging pages that make the monster slowly appear and then disappear. My clients wanted to read it over and over again. As we read the book we focused on either adding an attribute to the noun (red mouth, sharp teeth, etc.) or making our phrases longer by saying “Go Away __”.
The real fun was the puppet we made! All of our puppet had the Big Green Monster but most had something else to practice too! This friend is working on decreasing stopping so we wrote his speech words on the monster.
This friend is working on following single step directions and we needed to cover the other choices and present them 1 at a time.
These friends were reading the directions to their fellow puppet maker to make three word utterances and give directions.
This friend was just working at staying in a group with his friend!
These friends are working on sentences and we glued the sentences strips to their bags to take home and practice!
