Open-Ended Winter Boom Cards
It’s nice to have open-ended winter-themed speech therapy activities to use with any goal on your caseload.
Often, our mixed groups run more smoothly when we can use one reinforcer game or activity to work on goals in the group. Here are some winter game-type activities you can use for any goal:

Winter-Themed Picture Sequencing Boom Cards
Because school-based SLPs do a lot of intervention in mixed groups, it’s nice to have digital speech therapy materials that you can adapt to many skills. The following activities are great for working on sequencing tasks related to winter that also provide opportunities to discuss tier II vocabulary, following directions, verb actions, wh-questions, and more:
Winter Sequencing Boom Cards – Sequencing for getting dressed in the snow and having a snowball fight
Snowman Sequencing Boom Cards – Sequencing for building a snowman
Hot Chocolate Sequencing Boom Cards – activities to discuss how to make hot chocolate
Check out this blog post to learn how to incorporate winter sequencing. You can also get ideas for sequencing with a snowman theme from this blog post.
