There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Rose

I'm joining up with other SLPs at Speech is Sweet for her weekly linky.  It's super easy to link up: just write a blog post about the book that you're using this week, along with how you're using it in therapy. Then, link up!
I wonder how many speech rooms the old lady is visiting this week?  I have a feeling she is one busy lady right now!
This is such a wonderful book to introduce new vocabulary. I have a preschooler who isn't familiar with glitter, so today we're going to make a heart and use glitter to decorate it. There some words in the book that even my "older" kids (and by that I mean 2nd & 3rd graders!) don't know. Great opportunity to use synonyms.
Sequencing is always a must! The kids love to feed the old lady as she swallows all of those weird things, and the Interactive Book Attachments from Speechy Musings is perfect to use while reading, or after reading the book.
As with any book, "wh" questions can also be targeted, as well as past tense verbs. Using 1sparklleslp's Print & Go Packet for this book, the kids can take home their sequencing or the sheet for artic. Perfect "no-planning" homework sheets!
