Thank you for purchasing Jacob's Bug Collection by Panda Speech® LLC. I created this book to help my speech therapy students but is perfect to use with any young child. The target age range is 2-5 years old depending on skill and interest level. 


Your students will love lifting the flaps to help Jacob find the grasshopper! This book targets theme vocabulary (insects),  positional vocabulary, increasing utterances, yes/no questions, and more! It has two interactive elements to keep your student engaged (lift-able flaps and moveable pictures).

Read the book with your child or student. At the top of each page, it asks the child to look in the park to see if the bug is the grasshopper.  Prompt the child to lift the flap. There is a visual reminder on each page of the bug the boy is looking for (grasshopper). They will then answer yes/no (verbally or by pointing to the symbols on the page). The child will match the bug picture symbol (move-able square images) to the box in the phrase and verbalize the sentence (“I found a _____”). Tapping the boxes as they say it (model when appropriate) encourages verbalization! As the students find each bug,  they will notice the jar on the left side of the pages filling up with the bugs they found. Use the following supplemental worksheets/activities if desired. 



Supplemental materials (free downloads). All available in one downloadable PDF below


Picture supported comprehension page: Use a bingo dotter, marker, or crayon to color the answers to the questions. This is a great follow up activity.

Cut & Paste Craft: You can use this while reading the book or afterwards to reinforce the vocabulary. Color the bugs, cut them out, and paste in the jar. 


Read & Color: I use this page as a reinforcer for the vocabulary. After each page in the book, the student will color the bug they found on the page. 

Jar and Bug Manipulatives: These are full color printables that you can print out, laminate, and play while using the book. My students love putting each bug in the jar when we find it in the book (adding another level of interaction and engagement!).
