The trees are made out of construction paper and tissue paper cut into squares.
Here is how I tied them into speech:
There was a word list at my Activity Center.
Students had to practice each word 5 times.
After each word, they were able to add one "ornament" to the tree!
They loved it and I got a lot of productions out of them (plus I now have colorful decorations for my room!)
What did you do this week?
