Spring is on its way! Check out what I will be using for therapy starting next month.
RESOURCES for MIXED GROUPS DURING SPRING:
|Apraxia Blooms Speech & Language Craft|
SPEECH and LANGUAGE BLOOMS: These fun crafts make the cutest take-home for students to practice their speech and language skills. I have flowers to target articulation, apraxia, phonology, and language. My kids have always loved making these. We add pipe cleaners as a stem or to turn the flower into a bracelet.
FIND ARTICULATION and FOLLOW DIRECTIONS: SPRING is perfect for working with students with articulation, language, and fluency goals. This resource has hidden articulation words scattered around the picture that students look for using a magnifying glass. It also has 2-step temporal following directions, and lists of wh-questions for each picture scene. Other suggestions on how you can use the pictured scenes to cover other goals are included.
SPRING OPEN-ENDED GAMES: I love using open-ended games to pull mixed groups together. It also helps keep some students motivated. I consider that a WIN-WIN!
ARTICULATION RESOURCES FOR SPRING:
|Spring Articulation Mystery Picture|
One articulation resource that my students enjoy and that helps them with their fine motor skills are my SPRING ARTICULATION MYSTERY PICTURES. This resource helps reinforce what my students have been working on in occupational therapy (pencil grip, manipulation, writing pressure, etc..) too!
ARTICULATION QUILTS: SPRING targets articulation using art! It not only addresses students’ goals but afterward they make wonderful bulletin boards and/or decorations for your speech room!
FLUENCY RESOURCE FOR SPRING:
My NO PRINT FLUENCY TASKS: SPRING resource targets goals for identifying facts vs. myths about stuttering, identifying bumpy vs. smooth speech, identify/explain/demonstrate different disfluent speech patterns and fluency shaping techniques and stuttering modification techniques, using techniques and strategies at all levels (word, phrase, sentence, spontaneous speech), and response to social situations. I use the sentence and spontaneous speech level tasks with my students working on language too.
LANGUAGE RESOURCES FOR SPRING:
|Language Builder: Spring|
NO PRINT LANGUAGE TASKS: SPRING uses colorful graphics and real pictures to target receptive identification in a field of three, answering yes/no and wh-questions, describing, inference, compare/contrast, and narrative building skills.
LANGUAGE BUILDER: SPRING is a comprehensive packet covering so many different language needs! My language builder packs target basic vocabulary building, answering and asking questions, using inference skills, recalling sentences and details, describing, sentence building, and narrative building skills with barrier games!
PHONOLOGY RESOURCE FOR SPRING:
NO PRINT PHONOLOGY TASKS: SPRING is a comprehensive no print resource that covers a variety of phonological processing errors using auditory bombardment list, auditory discrimination with minimal pairs, rhyming task, wh-questions, and creating a winter scene! This resource covers the following phonological processing error patterns: Prevocalic Voicing, Postvocalic Devoicing, Final Consonant Deletion, Velar Fronting, Initial Consonant Deletion, Stopping of Fricatives, Denasalization, Consonant Cluster Reduction (including some complex clusters), and Gliding.
