I love my no prep packs because it requires little to no prep, can be colored to help extend the activity and then sent home for home practice! Sometimes, I want to use the same activity over again as review or to see if they made progress with the skill in another session. Making file folder activities are perfect for when you have mixed groups (artic and language), so you can cover everyone’s goals. All you need are empty file folders, a laminator (I used my school’s big one), velcro and any activity that you want to use!
This file folder activity comes from my Springtime Themed No Prep Speech and Language Activities Pack. It is filled with low prep and print n’ go activities that can easily be used as homework and therapy activities. I glued the kids on the file folder and laminated the whole folder. Then, I added velcro to the empty boxes and all the stimulus items and da ta…file folder activity ready!Normally, I have the students color the items and cut n’ glue onto the paper and take home with them. This is great for home practice, but then I was only able to use the activity one time. I have a prek kiddo that is working on noun-verb agreement and building vocabulary, so I wanted him to practice a little bit with a “drill” type of warm up. I love how this activity keeps my little one engaged while I do some artic “drill” with my two other students.
Grab my Sequencing Activities for the Whole Year and create your own file folder activities for sequencing.
These are my silly scrambled sentences. It makes for a great warm up or as an activity center. I am in the process of making some more file folder activities from my Soaking Up Summer With Speech & Language No Prep Summer Pack and Blooming Into Speech & Language No Prep Pack. These definitely takes more time to prep, but I can tuck the folder away for next year without having to prep all over again! What are some of your favorite file folder activities that you use in therapy?
