It’s November, so it’s time to make a Thanksgiving placemat craft speech therapy style!
Feeling the weight of all those assessments and IEPs, you have to write? I know November can be bananas with paperwork.
When you are overloaded, that usually means NO extra time to plan for therapy sessions.
So, I have a Thanksgiving Placemat Craft speech therapy style you can use with your mixed groups!
Don’t worry; this craft is LOW prep, easily adaptable for LOTS of goals, and something you can send home as homework.
Thanksgiving Placemat Craft Speech Therapy Style!
To make your Thanksgiving placemat craft, here is what you need:
- Thanksgiving placemat craft template
- Word lists or pictures for speech or language sounds
If you want word lists for a Thanksgiving theme organized by sounds, we have those in the Themed Therapy SLP membership for November.
In the free download, there are a variety of templates so that you can use this craft with lots of goals.
For example, you can work on naming foods, writing about thankfulness, or gluing words on the plate.
You can grab the full version of this craft in my TPT store if you want ready-to-go templates for different speech and language sounds.
Tips for How to Use Your Craft For More Sessions
After your students finish their crafts, you can laminate them to send home as homework for the Thanksgiving break. Your students can have it at their dinner table to remember to practice their speech or language targets.
Another way to extend the use of this craft is to keep them as warm-ups for collecting data or quick drill.
