I worked all last week on developing an activity/companion pack for There was a Cold Lady who Swallowed Some Snow. This is a nice book with a repetitive line, and familiar pattern. It's simple but funny, and the kids love it.
I typically read “Cold Lady" with the kids and have them practice answering questions, state/sing the repeatable line, and name objects using the manipulative icons. I then take another day to read “Who is in the Snow" (book is included with this packet) which reinforces the main concept (snow) and introduces animal names. With the teacher or OT, we work on a craft (in this case it's a snowman). With reading, re-reading, and questions/activities, I spend two weeks on this book if I work with the kids twice a week. The actual book ("Cold Lady who Swallowed some Snow") is not included with this packet but readily available in libraries, Amazon, or book stores.
-10 page interactive book entitled ‘Who is in the Snow?’ with simple text and icons for matching. (Photos are public domain images from Pixabay.com)

You can purchase this packet here on Teachers Pay Teachers for a modest price.
I realize there are lots of Cold Lady companion packs listed. Mine is specifically for kids who are more challenged. I use these materials during EC/OT collaboration times.
Have a nice weekend!
