Biscuit’s Valentine’s Day

Title: Biscuit’s Valentine’s Day

Author: Book:  Alyssa Satin Capucilli , eBook: Zuuka, Inc

Description: It’s Valentine’s Day and Biscuit and his friend spread the love…

Goals/ objectives:

  • “w” and “f” sounds
  • animal sounds
  • early sequencing
  • turn-taking in conversation
  • OT goal:  figure-ground perception
  • OT goal: craft project to go along
  • “wondering” vs “knowing”

Why I like this story: It’s Biscuit!  Need I say more :)

Ideas for use:

  • for minimally-verbal children, encourage them to attempt a “doggie sound” when Biscuit “woofs”
  • lots of opportunities for “w” and “f” production and simple sound-sequencing (e.g., “doggie”, “meow”, “knock knock”)
  • for more sound play, have Biscuit deliver valentines to a farm full of animals.
  • OT:  prior to reading the story, have kids make one of the adorable valentine crafts found on our Pinterest Board,
  • then act out the story pretending to deliver the Valentine using simple play house and people.
  • talk about conversational turn-taking.  With a girl figurine and a dog, act out the turn-taking.  The little girl speaks, then the dog barks and so on.
  • Use a visual to denote whose turn it is so kids get the rhythm (e.g. pass a bean bag back and forth)
  • OT:  the eBook has bones hidden on every page, encourage kids to find them and touch them.  There will be a tally at the end.  Great for keeping kids focused without being distracting.
  • Enjoy this adorable story, and then discover more Biscuit books…
