Kitten's First Full Moon
Reading is one of the BEST ways to develop strong speech, language, social, and cognitive skills.
The story companions at Speech Therapy Talk Services, LLC help guide parents and professionals on how to BEST support speech and language growth while reading our recommended books.
Theory Behind The Materials
First, I will review the theory behind these materials.
The goal of using story companions to teach speech and language skills is to keep speech and language therapy activities functional, natural, and meaningful. Reading is one task that checks all those boxes and it is a low-prep and inexpensive.
This “Kitten’s First Full Moon” story companion helps support a child’s speech and language development WHILE reading and discussing the book.
For example, the sentence strips and WH cue cards can be printed and cut out and used to help children answer WH questions while reading the story (i.e., a child who doesn't have the expressive language abilities to answer a question can point to a picture to answer the question and take part in a group).
The story retell guide can help a child sequence events, practice narrative structure, target correct articulation (if applicable), reinforce new vocabulary, and more!
