Activity of the Week: 10/17/16


This has been an interesting week!  I've only been at work for part of the time, mainly because I've spent some time at home nursing a sick little guy.  I hate when my buddy is not feeling well!  In the meantime, we had a fun all-purpose Non-Fiction Bundle that targets language and articulation/fluency by SLP Nicole Allison. These worksheets are seasonally themed and can be used to target a wide range of skills. Here's a sneak peek:


This week we discussed pumpkins, apple cider, and the upcoming holiday of Labor Day.  Each worksheet has a paragraph for reading (or to be read to the student, depending on their needs).  Language skills include vocabulary like synonyms/antonyms, context clues, -WH questions, plurals, irregular verbs.  Articulation targets sound/phoneme recognition ("Sometimes your targeted sound is made by more than the spelling!" is my mantra I remind students: such as in the case of working on /f/ but finding the /ph/ in phone, for example), reading, and retelling skills with correct articulation (or fluency, if needed for students who stutter).


This is THE PERFECT activity for those SLPs who have groups that are multi-faceted and have a wide range of skills being worked on.


My students love using highlighters.  Traditionally, they always seem to use pencils in most of their classroom activities and being able to branch out and use a highlighter for the activity ended up (surprisingly to me) being a hit with my students!  Go figure. Sometimes it's the little things that end up being the best things from an activity that we complete. Happy speeching!
