Using a Farm Theme in Therapy!

Wednesday, July 3, 2019
June has come to an end and we have just wrapped up our month long farm theme! 'On the Farm' may be one of my favorite themes. There is so much vocabulary and fun activities that you can do with farm animals! The kids have been so engaged this month and I am excited to show you what we have been up to!

First I wanted to share the books we have been reading. Some of my favorites are:
Ten Chirpy Chicks (this one must be out of print because it's listed for a crazy amount of money on Amazon. I linked a similar story instead)

What is a fun theme without a fun sensory bin?! For this one I used popcorn kernels and some squishy farm animals (that are actual bath toys!) This was great for imaginative, sensory play! These animals were also fun to use as characters in the stories we were reading. We used them with story retell and sequencing.  The are also perfect for working on prepositions (put the cow under the chair, on top of the box, etc) 
 I found this Farm Bingo game at Home Goods a few years back. This is a fun game that reinforces vocabulary as well as the opportunity to work on turn taking and social skills. I have also used the cards from the game for other activities. I found a newer version on Amazon for around $10. Check it out here!
 I had been on a hunt for a fun, interactive farm app. I downloaded a few different ones, puzzles, animal sounds, etc. but I really enjoyed the Peekaboo Barn app! I had used their Peekaboo Trick or Treat app in the past, so I knew my students would like this one, too. It was fun to use with the squishy farm animals and the String-A-Farm activity (which was a fun way to also work on fine motor skills) The wooden animals were also great for the sensory bin. 
Last but not least, we used My Little Farm so much over the past few weeks. I wrote an entire blog post about My Little Farm in May. You can check it out, here! This felt farm house is so much fun and so engaging. It's great for vocabulary, following directions, expressive language, receptive language, prepositions, sorting, etc. So much F U N ! 

I keep all of my thematic units in clear plastic bins for easy access and organization! I purchased my bins from Target and the labels I use are free in my TpT store. You can download them, here!
 Next up is our summer Under the Sea unit!

  1. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
