Apples, apples, apples! Apples everywhere! My favorite fall theme is…. Well, you guessed it! Apples! We have been hard at work in my speech room practicing our speech sounds with a twist of apple fun.
First, each of my articulation groups made an apple craft. My crafts are pretty primitive, but they’re fun! I gave each of my students a die-cut of an apple and then they colored their speech words and glued them onto the apple!
One little fella got extra fancy! He asked for a sunflower.
They were so proud to take their apples home! Kids just love taking things with them.
Apple reinforcement sheets were also a big hit!
Of course, we also did some apple color, cut, and glue sheets:
My language groups also joined in on the apple-picking fun! We read If You Give a Dog a Donut by Laura Numeroff! It’s about an adventurous little dog that likes apple juice with his donuts! We also completed a variety of apple themed activities during the week to compliment the book.
This was a quick assessment of temporal directions! And below is an apple stand full of prepositions!
More ideas for an apple theme:
– Have an apple taste test and compare/contrast the different types of apples
– Make applesauce in a life skills group (sequencing, following directions, etc)
– Play Apples to Apples Junior – love that game!
– Apple life-cycle to target sequencing goals
– Describe different types of apples
Have you incorporated apples into your therapy? Please comment and share your ideas! Have a happy Monday!
