Interactive Book Attachments

Slide1

I’ve been trying to put a greater emphasis on using book in my therapy sessions. You can target SO much with them and they are a totally age appropriate skill for many of my kiddos. BUT, book companion packs (while great) are seriously way too much work and I felt like I couldn’t prep the book companion packets fast enough!

I also realized that while books are great for our kiddos, much of the time my kiddos just couldn’t attend for long enough to finish the book. And even sometimes when it looked like they were attending, they didn’t retain much of the information from the book. I tried so many things, and then VOILA, I came up with the idea to make a book attachment for one of my kiddos who benefited from sentence strips. IT.WORKED.GREAT. So I made more and I used them with a huge variety of kiddos and most (if not every) kiddo I used it with benefitted.

These book attachments are great for giving the student a model sentence that they can use to retell stories, answer “What happened?” about a page, or describe events in a book.

Included in this bundle is 1 book attachment for the following books:

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie
The Mitten
The Hat
Ten Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed
Five Little Piggies
Today I Feel Silly and Other Moods That Make My Day
Old Bear
Corduroy
Where’s My Mom?
Room on the Broom
If You Give a Pig a Pancake
There Was an Old Monster
Mud Puddle
There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves!
There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly!
There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Books!
There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat!
There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bell!
There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow!
There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Rose!
There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover!
There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Chick!
There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Shell!

That’s TWENTY THREE BOOKS! At full price it only costs $0.50 a book for a major upgrade!

Set-up is easy which is what makes this product SO awesome! Last week, I assembled FIVE attachments (including laminating, cutting, etc…) in 30 minutes.

All you do is print, laminate, and Velcro the first page:

And cut/laminate/cut/Velcro the strips to go along the side:

Slide06

Another great thing is that even when disassembled and on a book shelf or in a box, they really don’t take up much more room than the original book.

Check out some more pictures below to see what they look like when assembled:

Also, for those of you who keep your book activities in Ziploc baggies, THEY FIT. Just trim the sides of the paper a bit before or after laminating:

From this packet, you can easily target story retelling, language expansion, pronouns, verbs, emotions, sequencing, vocabulary, and other language concepts without the use of flashcards or any drill! LOVE!

    Love this idea! I’ve been doing a poor man’s version with Boardmaker and not the cute graphics for a while…

    This looks great! I can’t wait to use it!
    I would love it if you’d consider adding:
    -Robert Munsch books–especially The Paper Bag Princess (great message!)
    -Jonathan London–Froggy series–eg, Froggy Learns to Swim, Froggy Gets Dressed
    -Norman Bridwell–Clifford series
    -Rob Scotton–Splat the Cat series–eg, On With The Show (not the I Can Read versions)
