Make vocabulary words on cookies with the first letter detachable with
Velcro. Go through selected vocabulary words from If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Numeroff to familiarize clients with the vocabulary. Then detach the first sound from the cookies and have the clients determine which sound and letter belongs in the empty space. They can then "give the mouse a cookie" (featured with a miniature garbage can in this picture).
