F is for Flag

By Wendy Cheyette Lewison

June 14 is Flag Day, but with so many American flags proudly displayed, every day seems like Flag Day. Perfect for reading together with a young child, F Is for Flag shows in simple terms how one flag can mean many things: a symbol of unity, a sign of welcome, and a reminder that-in good times and in bad-everyone in our country is part of one great big family.

This informative patriotic/America themed book can be used in speech therapy to introduce new vocabulary and work on action and present tense verbs. It is also great for targeting /fl/ and /g/ sounds.  Discover more of the speech and language teaching concepts for using F is for Flag in speech therapy below:
