Getting “Speechie” with a Good Book: The Rainbow Fish

I have always loved the book that I chose to highlight this week.  It is The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister.  The book companion I used is The Rainbow Fish Speech and Language Activities by The Dabbling Speechie.  This packet is absolutely chock full of activities for you to do with your students after you read the book!

Here are some highlights:

Included are also some definition sheets for the multiple meaning words, and pre-test/ post-test sheets for vocabulary.

Describing Pages 
This includes lots of pictures for describing and naming ocean animals.

These have words from the story that contain /r/, /l/, /s,z/, /sh/, /th/, /f,k,g/

This was a great packet to work with this week!  Even though I had a shortened week, I was able to use a few of the activities for two days.  My students really liked the activities!  The graphics are super cute, and the activities are so relevant to goals that we are working on.
