The Umbrella: Speech & Language Packet

Here is a new packet to accompany the book The Umbrella by Jan Brett.  It's very fitting right now, considering it's been pouring down rain here in south Louisiana for over a week now!  Ugh!  I'm pretty sure I've forgotten what the sun looks like.  Lol.

I'm so excited to show you this packet!  Check it out!  This one is a 60-page packet that covers speech and language skills for school-aged kids as well as preschoolers.  The combo pack contains all of the slides mentioned.

I've also separated them into school-aged and preschool-aged packets.  Both packets include the following:

  • Story props - Use as visuals as you read the story or for story retell.
  • Game board - Use with any of the enclosed cards. :)
  • Vocabulary cards - Can be used for labeling, defining, or describing.

The packet geared toward older kids also contains:

  • Detailed sequencing cards

  • Comprehension question cards

  • Story element cards

  • Making prediction cards

  • Context clues for Spanish words
  • Synonym matching cards
  • Regular and irregular past tense cards

Graphic organizers for:
  • Summarizing
  • Main idea and details
  • Compare and contrast

  • Articulation worksheet

  • Articulation target cards for /r/ and /s/

Whew!  Now, here are the preschool components!!  :) :)
  • Simple sequencing cards with sequencing board

  • Function cards
  • Categories: Sort the puddles onto the leaf umbrellas.  :)

  • Prepositions
  • Plurals
  • Rhyming

  • Early artic - bilabials, alveolars, velars
What do you think?  You can grab the combo pack here!  Click on these links for the preschool and school-aged separate packets.  :)

P.S.  I'll give a free copy of the combo pack to one of my blog followers that comments with their email!  I'll pick a random winner first thing tomorrow morning (Tuesday)!  :)


  1. This looks so cute!! I am a preschool-only SLP (with close to 50 little ones on my caseload!) so it's super helpful when I can grab packs that are primarily directed towards around the preschool age. We have a "seasons" theme coming up in a month or so in preschool and this pack would be perfect for talking about Spring! Themed packs make my planning so much easier!

    1. my email is, just in case! :)

  2. This is an amazing packet! I absolutely love Jan Brett's books and this one is my and my student's particular favorite. You've created a huge number of valuable materials for preschool through early elementary age population. here;s my email in case I am the lucky one who wins this giveaway
