Speech and Language with the Big Green Monster

Ed Emberley's Go Away, Big Green Monster! can be used for a variety of themes and speech and language objectives. Great for initial /g/ and multi-syllabic word practice. Vocabulary can include facial parts, colors, and descriptive words. 

Use this book when teaching body parts or in the fall for as part of a Halloween lesson. I used it during St. Patrick's Day when teachers' theme of choice was green. 
Go Away, Big Green Monster! is currently available in book form or as an iTunes ($2.99) or Android ($1.99) app. Find reviews of the app and  suggestions for speech and language therapy activities at the following blogs:

Find story props at and sequence cards at Make Learning 

At Ed, look under Activities to see coloring pages, masks, and a green monster paper airplane. 

Download The Big Green Monster Show at The Speech Spot. This is extremely cute and the preschool students love it!

At Learn NC, students use describing words while writing about the book. 

Phonics, sequencing skills, and other literacy lessons are included in suggested activities at ReadWriteThink
