This unit is designed to accompany the story, “The Mitten” by Jan Brett. The activities in this unit are designed to foster language and articulation skills while also learning from a great picture book.
The book is not included in this download.
I highly recommend putting each section into a page protector sleeve and then clipping all of the sleeves together. This method of organization makes it very easy to find and organize your materials.
“The Mitten Speech Therapy Book Companion” allows the educator to use the same book with almost every student on their caseload. Activities and worksheets are divided into

❤️ “I LOVE the leveled activities. I LOVE the variety of tasks – to include articulation, vocabulary and overall language skills in one packet….FANTASTIC!”
❤️ “This is a great book companion for a variety of lower level and higher level language skills. I love how the vocabulary is leveled according to difficulty. I really love how perspective taking is weaved into the book lesson almost seamlessly. What a great way to target social, language, and articulation using one book. The articulation words are words found in the book as well. An excellent time saver. Thank you for providing such a thorough book companion!”
