Using Room on the Broom in Speech Therapy

Slide1

Lately, I’ve been on a kick of (attempting to) use one book in therapy for a week. I know, I know. Why don’t I just buy a big book companion packet and be done with it? Well, several reasons. First, I’m cheap and if I want to use a different book each week that will get super, duper expensive. Second, I’m busy and prepping a full book companion packet each week would take forever. I’d never get to make any products of my own! I see many of my kiddos for 2 hours, one-on-one weekly so I go through activities fast!! Below is some of the fun I’ve been having with Room on the Broom, my favorite book for the Halloween season!

I sell these in a big mega bundle containing tons of books in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. You can check them out here. I am absolutely in love with them! I was actually reading a book the other day without one and one of my kiddos asked for it! I think it really helps to keep younger kiddos engaged while reading and identify the most important parts from the text in a book! Also, they are perfect for sentence expansion/grammar/sequencing 🙂

Room on the Broom Worksheet

Another wonderful FREEBIE! SLP sellers are just the best for sharing all of their fabulous freebies. I love using this worksheet in my laminating pouches. Another fun way I use this worksheet is to have the kiddos draw who is on the broom at various points throughout the book! That way they can erase to update it each time somebody new joins the broom! Download this worksheet here and check out the dry erase pockets below:

This FANTASTIC Room on the Broom comprehension book is only $2 so that is awesome. My kiddos LOVE pulling off the question mark boxes to see if they’ve answered the question correctly. It’s so motivating for them! This book is made by the same seller (The Speech Bubble SLP) as the free worksheet above and they pair really well together. Purchase this comprehension book (really, it’s only $2) here.

Below is a product I meant to assemble (another FREEBIE) but just ran out of time. It looks awesome if you’re looking for some sequencing cards and more comprehension cards! Very cute.

In total, if you buy all of the products I’ve recommended and download all of the freebies, you’d end up spending $14 and have book attachments to last you the entire year.

Looking for some crafts and snacks and other hands on creative ideas? Below are some projects I do with this book as well. These are super fun!!

If you don’t already have the book, I’d recommend purchasing it! Kids love it! I found mine for $6.99 at Target but it’s slightly cheaper on Amazon.

Have fun with Room on the Broom!! Anything I missed? I’d love to hear!
