Need some low prep book companions? The books in Italic are all featured in my Book Craft Bundle which is a MEGA no-prep set of book companion craft sheets!
Each of the italicized stories has a one page craft sheet that can be used for story retell, to answer questions about the story, to act out the story while you are reading it aloud.
The top part of the sheet is the setting of the story and the bottom half has the characters/items in the story.
Your students will love this fine motor activity and it can be used as a preschool craft not just for Halloween, but also Easter, Valentine's Day, Christmas, St. Patrick's Day and more!
I hope this list helps you plan some fun and easy speech therapy sessions this fall!
