Do your students adore superheroes as much as mine? I had one client who was convinced he was spiderman and was crazy obsessed with all things to do with him. We were afraid he would start climbing the walls lol.
The good thing about kids that love these characters is that it gives us a great motivational tool to get them to work and READ! Lots of my kids love comic books. I think they love the fact that it’s mostly pictures. What they don’t realize is I can get SO much language and communication skills from these books…even though they are full of illustrations.
You can usually grab comic books from your school or local library. I actually scored a couple of comics from Chick-fil-A kid’s meals lol. It’s SuperCow! Bahahaha…saving the world one chicken at a time.
I also grabbed a few of these magazines from the school library. The stories are short and perfect for a therapy session. 🙂
These are just a few reasons why I created my new Superhero Comic Book Companion Pack! Check it out. . .
This download is packed with tons of activities to use with those comics. It includes an open-ended game board,
-Graphic organizer worksheets that address story elements, main idea, cause and effect, inferencing, summarizing, sequencing, and compare/contrast.
-Vocabulary sheets for finding new words, synonyms, and antonyms.
-WH question cards, onomatopoeia worksheet, and simile/metaphor worksheet.
-Complete the comic strip and create-your-own comic strips. I love these sheets! So fun for them. 🙂
-There’s also story starters/writing prompts, composition sheet, and articulation cards for words and sentences.
-Pragmatic activities include sort the appropriate/inappropriate behaviors and character feeling worksheets.
-Finally, there’s a section for students to create and illustrate their very own comic books as well as open-ended homework sheets.
