If you know Manda and I, you know we love to teach with a theme!
Here is a recap of some weekly themed sessions that we have had recently. Each recap provides some pictures of the activities and information about some of the resources that we enjoyed using with them (with links).
SOME RESOURCES USED FOR THIS THEMED UNIT:
Angry Birds worksheets here, here and here. Several great ideas found at Homeschool Creations and several other useful sites.
Angry Birds crafts. Everyone enjoys completing a craft it seems when an Angry Bird is involved. We made Red Bird Magnets.
Angry Birds game. Used for turn taking, direction following and verbal expression!
Angry Birds plush.We used these to throw at our tower of angry birds cups- to try to knock down the pigs of course:).
Birdfeeder craft. This was fun to make! It can be completed using peanut butter and/or shortening.
Busy Bee Speech has a great Angry Birds activity teaching the main idea to use and you can read about it here.
Bug books here and here. Another week after the bug-themed one, we read and did another unit just on The Very Hungry Caterpillar book. We love that book because it is full of concepts and is perfect book for reading in the springtime because of the caterpillar and butterfly that are in it. Mia McDaniel has this awesome "Feed the Caterpillar Basic Concepts" in her TpT store that we used. Very cute!
We used our Bug Smash articulation and reading units these weeks too. Find the artic one here and the reading one here.
The Budget SLP has awesome ideas for a pizza themed speech and language themed session and you can read about her them here.
Ocean and fish worksheets here and here. Enchanted Learning and 1plus1 helped to provide us with wonderful ocean/fish themed worksheets for this unit.
Bath toys. These toys were found at Target. The water tub was a huge hit. We took the opportunity to introduce vocabulary, work on color/shape/phonic concepts and to target 1-3 step directions.
Sonny the Seal game. Have you played this great turn- taking game? If not, you should. The kids love trying to get the ring around Sonny's head so he will clap for them!
Speech fishing sets. We have many of the articulation, vocabulary and concept fish from Super Duper. Always a great activity to do at speech!
Magnetalk Activity Center. This is a must speech and language purchase for your therapy room- if you have the funds to buy it- GET IT- it's a wonderful set from Super Duper!
Fish puzzle. Nothing beats another magnetic Melissa and Doug puzzle:).
Live, Love, Speech has some great ideas for the preschool population using the ocean theme. Read her post on it here.
