Early on in my career as an SLP, I knew that many of my students benefited from visual supports to comprehend speech and language tasks. There were many sessions when I was scrambling to scribble out visuals to help my students understand a concept.
During the spring months, I love using specific themes to cover speech and language goals. Bugs, farm life, and spring vocabulary are part of my March and April themes. I also love incorporating chickens into my small group and push-in therapy because many kindergarten teachers are talking about newborn animals. Some teachers even raise eggs to hatch into baby chicks! If you are in search of chicken speech therapy activities for your K-2 students, you came to the right blog post.
Some struggles that I have had in the therapy room are how to keep my students engaged and ways to target multiple goals in a session.
For my younger crowd sensory bins have helped solve this problem. If you are a sensory bin making SLP, then this post is for you! Today, I am going to share Spring Sensory Bins for speech therapy that will pair well with this season.
One of the best ways to create materials for your speech room is to use file folders. File folders are easy to store, are readily available and can be transported easily in your therapy bag. Today, I am going to share how SLPs can use file folders in speech therapy to have materials for their students.
If you are a speech pathologist working with younger students, you probably have playdough in your room already! Playdough is a staple in my speech therapy room. My students love materials that they can touch and feel. I think this is why slime, kinetic sand, and playdough are fan favorites amongst kids.
