It was fun to complete these Christmas tree ornaments while targeting speech and language goals such as: direction following, sentence repetition and identification of colors and number counting. In addition, the students enjoyed learning prepositions and following directions with activities from our Gingerbread Auditory Comprehension: 1, 2, and 3- Step Direction Following Unit and Christmas Pronouns: he, she, they, him, her/s, his,their/theirs Units.
We completed holiday puzzles from our Very Merry Pre-K Christmas Speech, Language and Literacy Unit. Other activities from this unit were used a lot this week too such as: the roll a number, the tic-tac-toe game, and the bingo verbal expression game to name a few.
The connect -the- dots game page in our Christmas Phonological Awareness B&W Worksheets was also popular and is free along with other fun sheets.
Who doesn't like a cookie?:) Fun and "yums" were seen and heard while we targeted direction following and concepts while we decorated sugar cookies during therapy. We love and appreciate our students so very much. They seemed to enjoy the gifts we gave them (holiday bags, treats, stamping booklets, and holiday activity books) and we were very thankful for the ones we received!!
We completed many articulation worksheets and activities such as those found in our Christmas Cheer Articulation Unit For The: L, R, S, Th sounds, Miss Gator Speechie's S-Blend Christmas Tree Unit, and Gold CountrySLP's Oh Christmas Tree! Articulation Worksheets 340 Words. It was terrific having such a wide variety of articulation activities and worksheets to choose from! It certainly made planning for targeted individual student goals easy.
The students enjoyed the holiday decorations, reading and naming speech targets in the holiday books. The Santa Clause was a big hit as well. The students attempted to throw a bean bag cookie in Santa's mouth as we discussed holiday themed vocabulary and worked on sentence level verbal expression, e.g., "I see a gingerbread house", "We put a wreath on the door".
It's truly such a fun and wonderful time of year for doing speech and language therapy with our students!
Manda and I hope that you and your whole family have a very blessed holiday season and a healthy and happy 2014!
