There was a Cold Lady who Swallowed some Snow---Companion materials for EC/Speech Collaboration

Happy long weekend for many of you!  I'm taking a mini-vacation in Brevard NC, and the weather is pleasant so far!  Maybe David and I will take in a hike tomorrow!

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.

This pack is meant for the more linguistically challenged students and is perfect for speech/OT or speech/special ed collaboration. This is nice for integrating literacy and hand-on activities.This packet is great for those kids on Extended Content Standards or whatever your state designates for your students who would have a great deal of difficulty with Common Core.

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.
Enclosed is:
-10 page interactive book entitled ‘Who is in the Snow?’ with simple text and icons for matching. (Photos are public domain images from
- 9 page step by step booklet for making a Snowman
-Yes/No and Wh-questions to go with the Snowman craft
-Sequence worksheet for Snowman craft
-Cold Lady book manipulatives (3 pages including a sequencing activity)
-Who, What, and Where question comprehension worksheets for the Cold Lady book (3 pages)
-S is for Snow handwriting worksheet

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!
