If You Give a Moose a Muffin.

28 Feb

In our pre-K program, we’re lucky to run a weekly hour-long group that integrates speech/language/motor/sensory/social work. This means planning activities along with our awesome Occupational Therapists and Social Worker. We typically start with a book we all love and come up with appropriate activities from there. Since I also work with the itinerant speech students (mostly kids with just articulation goals), I usually wind up also making up articulation activities to pair with the books.

Last week’s pick? If You Give a Moose a Muffin by Laura Numeroff. We chose our books based on a handful of favorite authors/illustrators this year, so you’ll see plenty more related to Eric Carle and Laura Numeroff!

Other activities: We acted out the story while reading it (prop suggestions: muffin mix box, clothespins, handkerchief/sheet, plastic blackberries & muffins, button, moose) and acted out the poem “10 muffins on the window sill” with our little puppet theatre, a moose puppet, and 10 plastic muffins. For our snack the kids got to enjoy corn muffins! Question of the day: what is your favorite kind of muffin?

Below: SMARTBoard activity with book vocab/sorting home vs. school, printable book targeting prepositions (put the muffins different places), sentences with story vocabulary, sentences with medial /f/ (based off of/used with my favorite articulation iPad app: Articulation Station), medial /f/ Bingo.
