Looking for fall books for speech therapy? Here are some of my favorites, plus a few fall activity ideas that your speech students are sure to love.
This is such a cute book with beautiful pictures and even leaf-people! In speech you can make leaf people to target sequencing, vocabulary, and describing.
2. Awesome Autumn by Bruce Goldstone
This is a fun book with “all kinds of fall facts and fun.” In a group, see who likes the same fall activities or events and who likes different ones. You can also review concepts of same and different (compare/contrast) and turn taking.
3. I Know It’s Autumn by Eileen Spinelli
In your speech room, have kids describe how they know its autumn. Talk about the five senses and how they relate to the change in season. What does autumn smell like? What does autumn look like? Etc.
4. The Pumpkin Patch by Margaret McNamara
This not only a great fall book but it can help to target social skills. This story opens up conversations to discuss social skills and problem solving. Plus, your kids will love talking about choosing their own pumpkins.
5. Autumn: An Alphabet Acrostic by Steven Schnur
Clever, with beautiful illustrations. Use this book to teach fall vocabulary.
One more “book” is actually a fable that I have turned into a storybook with companion activities. It’s call The Apple Star. Check it out and let me know what you think!
