Green Eggs and Ham Companion Pack

Green Eggs and Ham, by Dr Seuss is a pretty awesome poem.  It builds as it goes, and my students memorized the lines. It's only written with 50 words, many of them core vocabulary.  When I don't have a clear idea of what to do (as in, I am tired, busy, overwhelmed), I can grab a book such as this, and work on myriad goals with an eager student.  I'm sure all of you school SLPs have had moments where planning awesome lessons doesn't happen.  Green Eggs and Ham is on my backup shelf!

This book can also be on your 'awesome lesson' shelf!  To help you with this, I've created some materials to go with it.  This companion pack is for your extra special learners---those students who really can't access the regular education curriculum, and need help putting words together, and understanding what literacy is all about.  If you are thinking thematically, 'green' goes with St. Patrick's Day, while 'eggs' go with Easter.  Green Eggs and Ham, though, is one that works anytime of the year.  For the record, while I have described a companion pack here, you will need to have your own copy of the book, Green Eggs and Ham (easily found in stores and libraries).

Here's the description:

This is a language/literacy pack as a companion for Green Eggs and Ham. This pack meant for the more linguistically challenged students and is perfect for  speech/special ed collaboration. This is nice for integrating literacy and hands-on activities. You are purchasing two interactive books, rhyming word bingo, and a food choice activity with visuals. Icons to match to the actual book, Green Eggs and Ham, are also included. Clipart is by Smarty Symbols copyright 2017. AAC core vocabulary words of ‘like’, ‘see’, ‘here’, and ‘I’ are emphasized.  This is also a great packet for using adjective + noun combinations, and for the pragmatic functions of stating preferences.
