There Was A Cold Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow
Story Companion

There Was A Cold Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow written by Lucille Colandro is a fantastic, themed book for speech therapy!

Not only is it engaging, but it also contains themed winter vocabulary, repetition of vocab/grammar, cause and effect, and simple story structure.

Another bonus is that this story can be used for a wide range of children. Therefore, it is only natural that a speech therapy story companion is a must to create low-prep, functional speech therapy sessions.

Theory Behind The Materials

As always, I like to review the theory behind the materials created at Speech Therapy Talk Services, LLC.

If you are new here, I'll let you in on a little secret. Reading is one of THE BEST ways to target speech and language skills as well as many other skills.

However, in order to maximize time during a therapy session AND create a functional home program, story companions are necessary.

  • They support learning through activities and use of visuals. 
  • They help students with varying levels of language and speech skills participate in the same activity. 
  • They are fun!
  • They can be used over and over and over again!
  • They can create thematic therapy programs.

This companion targets:

  • Vocabulary learning
  • Articulation
  • Grammar
  • Answering questions
  • Story retell
  • Following Directions
  • Social skills

What's Included:

  • Vocabulary cards
  • Vocabulary tasks: synonyms, antonyms, description
  • Story retell templates with and without visuals
  • Story sequencing cards
  • Who, where, what happened cards
  • Sentence strips to adapt books or answer questions
  • Customizable sentence strips
  • Following directions activities
  • "Feed the lady" activity 
  • Articulation lists
  • Functional articulation practice ideas

If you need the book....

If you don't own There Was A Cold Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow, that is okay. Amazon is selling it for about $3!!

If you want to use this companion you will need the book. 

Consider The Membership Program...It Pays For Itself

Since these story companions are:

  • so popular,
  • easy to use for both parents and professionals,
  • extremely beneficial for children,
  • versatile, and
  • adaptable

I have decided to create ONE storybook companion PER MONTH for the membership portion of this site. Therefore, if you join Speech Therapy Talk Services, LLC, you will have one NEW storybook companion per month plus all the old story companions (plus the other hundreds of pages of materials, games, and guides).

Since story companions are $5 each and our membership is only $5.99, joining pretty much pays for itself.

Not only will you have access to story companions, you will have access to:

  • Articulation guides (Spanish and English)
  • Articulation cards
  • Functional language games
  • Parent handouts (Spanish and English)
  • Documentation templates
  • Quick print therapy materials for grammar, vocabulary, story-retell, following directions, and more!
  • RTI materials (screenings, handouts, classroom strategies)
  • Motivational tools
  • Visuals schedules
  • and more!

So...for only $1 extra dollar, you will have access to all of this PLUS one new monthly story companion. 

If you want to try it, sign up here.
