End of the week SLP blues is an understatement for me this week....we're talking complete and utter loss of brain power. Raise your hand if you feel the same way....oh all of you? Ya, okay well luckily I had just enough brain power to come up with this blog post.
Hope it helps you get through the rest of the week!
This blog has this craft as a countdown to the end of summer, but I think we can take it further. Pick 3 colors of paper for the links. One color is for asking questions, one color is for commenting, and one color is for off-topic comments. Each student gets a chance to tell the group what they are doing for summer break. Then the links go on according to how the group participates. Make sure to tell the students beforehand that you want the links to vary in color (but not have any off-topic links) and you want as many links as you can get!
This is a fun activity to do with your students with expressive language goals. There are some good opportunities to talk about comparitives and superlatives.
I like the idea of having kids come up with a sentence using the summer words in this booklet. Great vocabulary builder as well.
-Speech Room News has pronoun ice cream cones
-Speech Time Fun has an ice cream parts of speech activity.
My room is officially all packed up, so I was scrambling this morning for something to do with a pre-schooler. So, we made a watermelon.
We glued her target words onto each of the seeds and practiced them as we glued.
I've got 2 more days of therapy and then sweet, sweet summer!
