4 Halloween Books With Free Language Bookmarks

Wednesday, October 4, 2017
Halloween is such an exciting time. I love the fall season and getting in the holiday spirit in my speech room. If you follow this blog, you've seen some of my Articulation Road Maps and Sound Bookmarks - I hope you like these narrative suggestions too. 
I was recently digging through my Halloween books pulling out some vocabulary and I thought I'd share them in a bookmark with you! They are quick language targets to use with various grade levels - a little something for everyone. I love literacy-based speech! More than a fun read aloud, we MUST be intentional with our book choices. Get all the Halloween books in therapy I use on Amazon (affiliate links included in this post.)
4 books with FREE downloads to use in Speech Therapy this Halloween
My hands down favorite is Room On The Broom by Julia Donaldson. Why do I love it? What do I use it to target?
-Social (teamwork)
-Grammar (irregular past tense verbs)

I discovered Bone Soup by Cambria Evans last year.
Why do I love it? What do I target in Speech?
-Vocabulary (AH-MAZING vocabulary!)
-Story Recall
-Writing Prompts
*you could also do a fun snack...make your own "soup" 
Bring in and make a "mix" to share.

I also love Hallo-Wiener by Dave Pilkey. Such a sweet message! This is the perfect book to work on inferencing! What else do I work on?
-Story Recall

My last book is Big Pumpkin by Erica Silverman. Why do I love it? How do I use it?
-Social Emotional
-Story Recall
I made these bookmarks to tape on the inside of the front cover of each of these - perfect for last minute therapy planning! They list all the vocabulary words to target and more.

  1. These books look great and I love your organizing goal targets on a bookmark that can easily be kept with each book. I'm going to use this idea for other books I use! Thanks so much!

  2. This is an awesome freebie! Thanks so much! You surely touched on EVERYTHING we do with our books! :)
    Thanks again! Happy Haunting

  3. Ohh, those books are so cute! I can remember how I was reading The Bone Soup to my nephews and they really liked it. I think for this Halloween I will pick another book fro your list. That's how I can be sure the book will be really great. i'm sure the kids will appreciate this present, just like they did the last year.
