Welcome to the last A Slice of Speech before winter break – this little series will be returning on January 4th! I’m sniffling, sneezing, and my head is pounding… but I am determined to make it until break. Just. Five. More. Days. Hopefully, these visual lesson plans can provide a little inspiration for the last week of therapy! Just download and click the pictures to find out where to locate the resources.
What better way to kick off winter break than with the Old Lady?! ALL of my language groups will be working with the book, There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bell by Lucille Colandro. I adore book companions, because they incorporate my favorite therapy tools and they contain activities that can be used to address a wide variety of goals!

We will be retelling the story with complete sentences by feeding granny story cards! We will also use an interactive story map to practice sequencing and more retelling! Another expressive goal I will be touching on is irregular plurals and we will play a print n’ go memory game! I will also give students plastic baggies so they can take their memory games home for more practice! Receptively, we will work on answering WH questions, temporal directions, and prepositions!
My articulation groups are due for another fun challenge by The Peachie Speechie! These activities make kill and drill interactive and fun! Students will say their target words 100 times while coloring 100 lightbulbs! I may even bust out the magic markers! haha.. Nothing brings my students more joy than using markers! And… nothing makes my table messier!
Have a wonderful week!
