Happy Thursday!! So I normally try to post on Fridays about the activities we did in speech that week, but this week I cut my week a little short. As you read this, I am on the way to Savannah, GA to celebrate my good friend Francesca's bachelorette party! (If you care to follow our trip, follow me on Instagram @kevstin) This week we continued to spread the love and celebrate Valentine's Day. We even invited that crazy old lady into our sessions this week, too! Take a peek into my sessions this week... make sure you get all the way to the bottom where there may be a giveaway!
This week we read the story, There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Rose!
My students never seem to get tired of these books! In addition to reading this story, we had some fun with a few festive activities.
First, we used this activity from my speech & language set to practice story retelling and sequencing skills with the Old Lady!
Then, we went on a story scavenger hunt to find our target speech words in the story! After we finished, I sent these handy little worksheets home for homework (score!)
My younger kiddos and I created a Valentine's Day speech wreath.... although almost every single kid put it on their head as a hat when we finished. V-Day visor? Sure!
This craft was inspired by the wonderful Jenna Rayburn!
Last but certainly not least, we wrapped up our week with the Valentine Heart Challenge! Each child placed a heart on the mat when they practiced a target. This made for a fun skill and drill session! Instead of candy I found these adorable heart erasers at the Target Dollar Spot that worked like a charm. You can download this challenge (and a bunch more!) from the Peachie Speechie! You can download this freebie here!
