If you’ve been searching for a book that serves older students in upper elementary or even middle school, this book is what you need! Bone Soup by Cambria Evans is a fantastic book to use during this Halloween season while also hitting on key concepts and speech and language goals for your students. In this episode, we’re doing a deep dive into Bone Soup and sharing all the reasons why we love this book and how we’d use it in our literacy-based speech therapy sessions. 

During our deep dives we take you behind the scenes of our dissection of books and what key ideas we can use with the book. Our deep dive into Bone Soup is different from some other picture books because of the complexity of vocabulary, concepts, and the impact it has on older students. We also highlight Bone Soup’s theme and character analysis activities that deepen the comprehension for students. We highly recommend using Bone Soup during your sessions before Halloween is gone! 

Topics Discussed:

  • Why we choose to use Bone Soup during our speech therapy sessions
  • Ways to use the theme and character analysis for student activities 
  • Provide examples of inferring and predicting questions you can use with your students
  • How Bone Soup can be used with a variety of students and includes comprehensive concepts
