Using YouTube videos in speech therapy has been such a time saver for lesson planning. Some weeks or months are filled with paperwork, meetings and assessments. During those busy times, I try to find no prep or low prep therapy materials to target my students’ goals.

Winter YouTube videos for speech therapy are the perfect material for the winter months. Just because you don’t have a ton of time to lesson plan, doesn’t me you have to abandon themed therapy!

YouTube Videos Are Mixed Group Friendly

Plus, winter YouTube videos are very mixed group friendly, which definitely helps me to breathe a little easier knowing that I can target everyone’s goals in a session.

Here are some winter YouTube videos I recommend for your students:

Simon’s Cat YouTube videos has several winter themed videos. You can target a lot of skills including: perspective taking, thought bubbles, predictions, summarizing, answering wh-questions, teaching verbs, articulation carryover and winter vocabulary. Check out my post HERE to see how you can use this channel in therapy.

This science channel is kid friendly for your 2-3 grade students. I do use this with my 4-6th grade students that may be struggling with reading and can still learn vocabulary in a friendly way.

All the videos are 5 minutes or less and cover lots topics. She has a lot of videos about winter that are non-fiction, so you can cover tier II vocabulary, main idea, answering wh-questions, summarizing and articulation carryover.

Winter commercials can be great for targeting inferencing, perspective taking and making predictions based on the clues in the video and our background knowledge. This is a fave commercial of mine!

Winter Wordless Short Videos

This wordless short video has so many opportunities for working on inferencing. Teaching inferencing has shown to improve student’s reading comprehension. This is a great videos to work on background knowledge and clues to make inferences.

YouTube Videos for Winter Read Alouds

Personally, I think hearing a book read out loud by a person is the best way to read a book to children. There are more organic moments to pause and let kids share what they see or questions they may have during the story.

But, if you need a book and didn’t have time to get something at the library, then YouTube read alouds can allow you to still use that winter book in therapy. YouTube has a lot of different books available, so if there is a winter book you want to read, I bet there is a channel that has it available!

America’s Funniest Videos

Did you watch America’s Funniest Videos as a kid? I think that show is still on TV.

These winter videos can be great for targeting actions, creating complex sentences, making predictions and taking about how to make empathetic comments/questions when someone gets hurt during winter activities. If you want to see how I use these videos with middle school students, head to this blog post.
