Spring is almost here! Need some ideas or things to do in therapy? Here are some fun ideas to keep kids engaged in your speech sessions.
Build A Peep A Home
Items Needed: Graham Crackers, Royal Icing (Icing to stick things together), Peeps, Easter Grass, Chocolate Eggs or Jelly Beans
This project can address sequencing, prepositions and following directions.
Sequencing & Following Directions – While creating the house, use sequencing words such as first, second and last. Give the student 1-2 step directions on how to make the house.
Prepositions – After building the house, give the student directions on where to place the peep and/or eggs. For example, tell the student to put the peep ‘inside’ the house and the egg ‘next to’ the house.
Place all items in a basket or box. Discuss each item with the student and have him/her describe the items. When giving directions, tell the students what to take ‘out’ of the box and when to take them.
Use the icing to put the house together. Place the grass inside the house.
Give the student directions on where to place the peep(s) and/or the chocolate eggs.
