Easter Books for Literacy-Based Speech Therapy

Have you been using literacy-based lessons in speech?  Using books is a wonderful way to target articulation, language, phonology, apraxia, and fluency!  It is easy to utilize books in teletherapy too!  The best part is that if you are using books during teletherapy, you can complete some parent training on how they can use books found in their home or through online services to practice their skills at home!

There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Chick
 by Lucille Colandro
SOUND SYSTEMS: Target velars, fricatives, glides, and consonant clusters easily with this repetitive story!  Students can even practice carryover of their sounds (k, g, s, sh, l, r, clusters) while targeting language concepts too.

LANGUAGE: Target identification and labeling of basic vocabulary found in the print and in the pictures, work on wh-questions and yes/no questions, and practice sequencing and story retell!

Splat the Cat- Where's the Easter Bunny? 
by Rob Scotton
SOUND SYSTEMS: Target velars, fricatives, glides, and consonant clusters (k, g, s, sh, l, r, clusters) easily with this cute story! Scat sends a card to the Easter bunny with a special request but he is afraid that he has been forgotten so he goes looking for the Easter Bunny.

LANGUAGE: Target prepositions, work on semantic features (function/description) for common items, answering wh-questions, and  story retell!

The Night Before Easter 
by Natasha Wing 
SOUND SYSTEMS: Target velars, fricatives, glides, and consonant clusters (k, g, s, sh, l, r, clusters) in this rhyming story about siblings that are prepared for Easter and catch the Easter Bunny in action.

LANGUAGE: Target rhyming, vocabulary building using context clues, and answering wh-questions, and  story retell!

If you do not want to have go through the books and make your own lists, I have created an easy cheat sheet for articulation words, language concepts to target, and some basic wh-questions you can ask for each book!  You can grab your free cheat sheet below.
