Can you believe 2016 is done? It’s been a crazy busy year! I know most SLPs aren’t doing any speech therapy today but I have some ideas for you to use on Monday!!
I sent out newsletters this week to my speech therapy families with some of these ideas. I always have parents wanting extra ideas for home…plus I was off all this past week to spend time with my family…so newsletters sounded like a great option!
Articulation Coloring Sheet
This one is super crazy easy. It’s a freebie that you can find here! I sent this one out to my articulation clients earlier in the week.
This might be one of my favorites for NYE fun! Grab a plastic bin, some black beans and gold glitter! The pictures I added you can find here.
Ideas to use with the sensory bin:
Describing: Expressive Task-Child chooses a picture and tell 3 things about it. Receptive Task- Parent/SLP describes a picture for the child to find. (Think “I Spy.”)
Increase MLU: Child finds a picture and uses the carrier phrase “I see a…(sweater).”
Answering “What” Questions/Vocabulary: Child chooses a picture. Parent/SLP asks “What do you see?” Child should answer with the correct label.
**You don’t have to make a sensory bin to use these pictures. Print two copies and play a matching game.**
Party Cup Artic
If you are having a NYE party, save some plastic cups and party blowers! Write articulation words on the cups. Have the child blow the party blower to choose a word. Say the word correctly 3-5x or put it in a sentence.
Wishing everyone a happy and safe New Year’s Eve!! Be sure to sign up to receive newsletters (and freebies)!
