Well, working in a low income district for the past few years has been a wonderful experience, but it has really challenged me to use every bit of my creativity! I don’t receive any money for materials, games or fun things for my students, which I think is pretty much the story for most districts. So, due to the lack of funding for speech therapy, I am starting a new monthly series on my blog called, ‘Common Objects For Uncommon Speech Therapy’!
Here’s the best part of this new series…I am open to using your suggestions! Leave a comment on this post with what you want me to use to create an activity or craft idea to be used in therapy. You can suggest materials that you have in your speech room or you can just come up with some crazy suggestions…the harder the better 🙂 If I pick your idea, I have to use the materials that you suggested.
Here are a few rules about your suggestions:
That’s it! I am so excited to start this series as I think it will be challenging and exciting to see what materials I will be using! I will start the series next week with, ‘Pencil Lead Therapy’!
Oh and of course, to make things just a little more fun, if I pick your materials, you will get a $10 credit to my TPT store!

I would love it if you would give me some ideas of how we can incorporate "gym" items in therapy. Anything in the gym that your school has like balls, jump ropes, etc.

Great idea Mindy! I will use those items in my next 'Common Objects' post. Since I plan on using your idea, you are welcome to pick $10 worth of items from my store! Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know what you would like!
