This read-aloud of I Hear a Pickle by Rachel Isadora is highlighted in the January 2020 Saltillo Calendar. Explore five senses with a sense of humor mixed in. We experience the world through our senses. We hear with our ears, smell with our nose, see with our eyes, taste with our tongue, and touch with our skin. What does a pickle have to do with all this?

Throughout the story, you'll find embedded words to model, including these suggested six words: I, hear, smell, see, taste, and touch. Additional words for modeling are also included in this read-aloud: read, more, turn the page, the end, and again. Model words to match the interest and needs of the person using the communication system as you explore different word combinations!
