Spring is here! I don’t know about you all, but my April and May are going to be jam packed with IEP’s!! Let’s start Spring off right and have a spring speech therapy activities round-up to help YOU plan awesome therapy.
Spring speech therapy activities are my FAVORITE to plan because it’s really easy to think outside the box and even do therapy outside! Here are some ideas to help with planning therapy. (Amazon affiliate links are included for your convenience)
Spring Speech Therapy Activities with Baseball
Baseball season is here and it is a favorite theme with my students!! They love this easy DIY baseball game. All you need is a white board and suction cup balls to play this baseball game! Click HERE to get more details about how to use baseball in your speech room!
Spring Speech Therapy Activities
I use spring themed vocabulary to target grammar, compare/contrast, and categories. Click the photo above or HERE to snag this spring season pack!
When the spring season gets busy with IEP’s and referrals, my planning time goes down the drain! I solve that problem by using my Springtime Print N’ Go Pack or my Blooming Into Speech & Language No Prep Pack.
Spring Speech Therapy Activities with Sensory Bins
Everything is blooming during spring, so using a “flower” theme is perfect for targeting so many speech & language skills! I made a fun Flower garden sensory bin that targets articulation, verbs, categories, antonyms and noun functions!
I include therapy guides for the SLP, and extra handouts that you can give to teachers and/or parents to use! Click on the photo above to grab these free guides to use with your flower sensory bin.
You can see what I did for an Insect Sensory Bin (with FREE printable) or my Flower Garden Sensory Bin Guest Post. I bought some plastic toys on amazon to fill the bin. These Big Bunch O’ Bugs are perfect! To make a flower garden sensory bin you can snag these fun Safari TOOB flowers or head to the dollar store and get some fake flowers!
Spring Speech Therapy Craftivities
I also like to whip out some hands on activities such as crafts! This flower craft covers LOTS of goals, so you can use ONE craft with your whole caseload!
This is FREE in my TPT store! This craft is great for following directions as well as using has/have in sentences to explain what each ant is carrying on their backs.
Spring Speech Therapy Activities That Get You Outside
If you head to the dollar store, you can find all the supplies you need to do a “hands on” plant/flower lesson. Read more about that over at Creative Speech Lab (I was honored to guest post for Claudia)!
Make some DIY binoculars, grab my FREE “I Spy” Nature Walk Activity and go get your exploration on! Here is my sneaky tip….only bring one pencil or one set of binoculars to increase turn taking and requesting!
Spring Speech Therapy Activities Using Books
Here are some of my new favorite spring books that I am using!
