My Little Farm!

Monday, May 20, 2019
E-I-E-I-O! It's that time of year for a farm theme! One of my favorite themes to use in therapy is a farm theme. The books and the activities are so much fun. This year I added a new toy to my bag of farm themed tricks and I am so excited to share it with you!

My Little Farm is a felt farm house that my students have been having so much fun with. If you remember a blog post from a few years ago, I went on and on about how I loved using My Little House in therapy. (You can check that post out here.) My Little Farm is created by the same SLP and it is just as adorable. 
 You can use it as a flat lay activity or velcro it together as a 3 dimensional farm house! The farm is reversible. One side looks like a red barn and the other is an interactive farm scene. Part of the farm scene is purposely left open ended while the other allows for matching activities. There are over 30 people, animals, and farm equipment felt pieces to play with. This has been such a fun way to elicit expressive language with open, imaginative play. But the pieces are also fun to use for category sorting, vocabulary,  object function, and pronoun activities.
 Recently I have been using the farm to target answering WH-questions, specifically where and who. Last week we even created a whole story with characters, a setting, and a sequence of events with this farm. My older students got to work on their writing and retelling skills while creating their own story. Any time you can switch up activities to work on the same skills, it is a huge win in my eyes!
 As a traveling SLP, I love that this can be folded flat and easily carried in and out of therapy settings. It also takes up minimal room in my trunk which is important these days! My Little Farm comes in a box with a handle that makes it very convenient to carry in and out of homes and schools. This would be a perfect addition to a therapist's therapy tool collection, a classroom or birthday gift.  It would also be a great purchase by a parent so they could have some fun with language at home!  To learn more about My Little Farm or to purchase your own, click here to visit the SmartFelt Toys website.  Use code: SIMPLYSPEECH at checkout for free shipping!
