Five Red Leaves--printable book (Free as always)

How was your week?  Mine was highs and lows.  I visited my new granddaughter (now 6 weeks)  (obviously a high).  A former student of mine, a beautiful shining light, passed away (pretty much as low as it gets). School started (a high).  North Carolina General Assembly (a low).  Sorry if I haven't posted.

I'm wanting to post a 'Fall Collection' soon, as collections seem popular, and I want to be able to provide teachers and SLPs with free stuff, so to get ready for fall, I found an idea tonight and then used Boardmaker for this book.  Boardmaker, by the way, is generously provided by my school system.  If you don't have it, write a grant or ask for it.  Expensive--yes, but I honestly don't know how I functioned before I got it.  I used to hand draw my communication boards (of course, before Google images).

Books during speech therapy (for those of you who wonder why) are great for everything--in this case, phonemic awareness, integration with literacy/math goals, vocabulary, concepts of print, rhyming....the list could go on forever.   If you are working on articulation, just the 'L' sound alone should hook you. 

So, here are screen shots of the book.  I haven't tried it out yet (weekend and Labor Day interferes with school attendance).  In all honesty, I got the poem and adapted it from Boardmaker Share and written by Elise Klink. This was a great poem.  Thank you, Elise!

Mine is paper; Boardmaker Share version is meant for interactive Smartboard.  Mine is hands-on interactive--on selected pages, attach a leaf with velcro---be dramatic when the kid takes it off!   Key velcro pages are clearly indicated with the book.

Looking forward to fall!  Thank you, everyone, for following my blog! It means a lot to me.
