Fall Books & How I Use Them In Speech Therapy


Great fall book ideas for using in speech therapy and vocabulary words
Picture books are my jam. We must incorporate literature at any opportunity in our speech therapy sessions. I want to foster a love of reading with students. How reading is more than just words on a page. It offers a real-life context to the goals we are working on. 
Here are 2 for the fall that I like using in my therapy room. Download the free printable to use as language bookmarks.
LeafMan by Lois Ehlert - This is a very short, beautifully illustrated picture book. It captures the vivid changing colors of the leaves of fall. Great opportunities for fall craft extensions here.
How I use it in therapy:
-Sequencing
-Vocabulary
-Writing
-Compare/Contrast
-Superlatives

Fletcher and the Falling Leaves by Julia Rawlinson. Gorgeous watercolor illustrations capture you in this sweet story. This story about a sweet little fox is one of my favorites to use with therapy goals.
-Social/Emotional
-Adjectives
-Vocabulary
-Figurative Language: personification is on nearly EVERY page. 

I hope you can incorporate some of these ideas as you read books about fall!
