I am often trying to demonstrate to my students (and my colleagues/administrators as well for that matter) how the skills we learn in speech can be used in the classroom. It helps show the relevance and ensure carryover.
How do I do this? I like to get worksheets from resources that are designed around skills I am working with. Below you will see some of my favorite books to use:
I introduce the skills using TpT activities such as the following:
I have used my Cause & Effect Pictures to introduce the concept of cause and effect. Once mastered, we read a story from one of my books. The questions all elicited cause and effect answers. We used our cause and effect vocabulary from the visual in all of our answers!
I got these comprehension folder activities from Lakeshore Learning. They come with motivating nonfiction and fiction stories, reproducible graphic organizers for note-taking and suggested activities. I love using them and my students enjoy learning with them!
I love showing my students “Hey! You can do this!” The seem so proud when they seem to comprehend the stories and are able to respond.
