Book of the Week: Acorns Everywhere!

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links to Amazon.com for your convenience.


One of the books I'm using this week is "Acorns Everywhere!" by Kevin Sherry.  This is a VERY simple book that I picked up from one of the Scholastic flyers for $1.00 last year. There really aren't a lot of words, so this is a great book for having students "read" the pictures!


We discussed why the squirrel is burying acorns, whether or not students have seen squirrels gathering food in their yards, as well as the emotions of the different animals we see on the pages.  After we were finished, we worked on following directions using acorns (put them in the the cup, give three acorns to Mrs. Smith, put one one your toes, etc.).

In my next sessions with the kids, we used this Roll & Cover Game to target their individual language and articulation goals:

Enjoy!

    1. Martha, Roll & Covers are very simple games. You basically print a page for each child in your group. When it's their turn, they complete an activity (say an articulation word, answer a wh- question, etc.) then roll a regular game die. They then color one of the spaces that corresponds with the number they rolled. The first person to color all of the acorns is the winner!
