This week's activities were centered around There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Rose (Lucille Colandro).
5 Minute Day:
The students started off with prepping their homework. Since the kids are off next Monday & Tuesday, I wasn't going to give homework. Then I saw this sheet in There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Rose Print & Go Speech & Language (1sparklleslp)! My older kids used the sheet provided (with words from the story that has their targeted sounds) to write 10 words on the Old Lady. My younger kids glued small pictures on her.
When they finished with that (providing they still had some time before the 5 minutes ran out), they said their words/sounds, rolled the big dice into the heart box, and put the chip on the Graph a Granny (Crazy Speech World).
I kept my little one very busy this week! On Monday, we used Speechy Musings Interactive Book Attachment for the Old Lady Book Series for sequencing and retelling, answered yes/no questions about the book, used the vocabulary from the book to read "Rose,Rose What do you See?", and made complete sentences using the vocabulary and the carrier phrase, "I see ____". (Those were all freebies from MarissaSpeech's There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Rose Activities.) Oh, and she also "fed" the Old Lady pictures from the story using Jenn Alcorn's Language Unit.There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed-2 Emergent Readers/Minibooks--Figuratively Speeching SLP) using the sequencing pictures from the Print & Go Packet.
What else would we play, but the open-ended game that is part of Jenn's There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Rose! Language Unit?
A few of my kids are working on making grammatically correct sentences & answering "wh" questions. Using K. Ratliff's Groundhog Day Roll-a-Story Story Cubes (Free!) as my inspiration, I created some cubes from LessonPix for Valentine's Day.
I searched for a craftivity that would somewhat go with the book, and found this from A Life in Balance:
Not exactly a rose, but it was a flower made out of hearts!
That wraps up my Valentine's Week!
