This week should go fast and furious...after all, FIVE days until Christmas break! Although we are in "break mode" Speech and Language therapy must go on...so I will be sharing what I'm doing in speech as often as I can this week.
The category trains by Shelia Wenzlick were a BIG hit with my preschool and bilingual kinder boys as well as my intermediate level kids in the self contained classroom. Here is a video scanning the activity after we started working on it:
An articulation activity we did today was a freebie by Arielle Gawron: stringing Christmas lights with the /K/ and /G/ sound. The kids LOVED stringing the lights. We hung them outside our door for everyone to see.
The last thing we did was pretty impromptu. The kindergarten boys wanted to make a candy cane. I pulled out their individual sounds we were working on, cut out some red candy canes and went around the table practicing speech sounds and gluing them onto their candy canes.
