I love book companion packs! Honestly I can’t get enough of them!
One of the reasons I particularly enjoy using them is because they nicely supplement thematic language therapy activities (see Twin Sister’s Post HERE on thematic therapy). This is why I jumped at the opportunity to review Speech Universe’s If You Give A Mouse A Cooke Phonemic Awareness Packet.
Phonemic Awareness activities are incredibly important for young (Pre-K-1st grade) language impaired learners. They are especially important for children from low SES households as well as young limited English proficiency learners.
Jen’s packet is terrific at addressing a number of phonemic awareness skills including:
- Syllable Counting
- Rhyme Recognition
- Rhyme Generation
- Syllable Blending and
- Initial Sound Isolation
And the best part is that all the words she uses for the activities in this packet are vocabulary words from the book. The adorable illustrations as well as clear visual instructions are sure to engage the attention of young learners for multiple sessions. The hidden bonus is that you can use the companion for far more than just the phonemic awareness. You can do a:
- Noun, verb, and adjectives sort
- Describe Attributes
- Formulate sentences
- Provide synonyms and
- Explain definitions
If you are interested more in this activity you can find it in Jen’s TPT Store.
