Looking for some fresh new activities for your apraxia students?! I highly recommend trying out interactive speech therapy notebooks! They’re meaningful and memorable. Let’s explore Interactive Apraxia Notebook Volume Two!
This resource can be found in The Speech is Sweet Club – along with all of the apraxia materials I have created over the years!
Each volume of this series features four fun and hands-on activities. Every packet addresses eight different syllable patterns: VC, CV, CVC, CVCV, CVCVC, CVCVCV, CCVC, and CVCC.
These sentence flaps are cute and fun! There are three included in this packet and each have six target words (a total of 18 target words). Students can practice their word targets, color them, and then glue the activity into their notebook (or onto a piece of paper). Then they lift up a flap and write a sentence underneath using the target word.
Also, keep in mind that interactive notebook activities can stand alone! They can also be glued onto loose-leaf paper or construction paper and sent home. This is a great craft to send home for students to practice at home!
Doors to Apraxia
Doors are a fun type of flap! Students glue their target words under the flaps. They can also write phrases or sentences using the target words underneath. These are great to re-visit if you need a quick word list in future sessions. Students just open the “doors” and they’ll see lots of words to practice!
Students can also sort their target words! For example, they can put words that start with /o/ on one side and words that start with /a/ on another side!
Double Flap Fun
For each syllable pattern, you’ll receive three double fun flaps. That’s a total of 18 different word targets! One of my frequently asked questions over the years is if my resources have a variety of word targets. Yes, yes they do! haha
These activities give you a ton of flexibility! Students can lift up the flap and write the word, phrase, or a sentence using the target word! If your students are not yet writing then they can draw a picture under the flap.
Interactive notebooks are great tools for speech therapy. If you don’t have time to print and plan activities one week, then have your students pull out their interactive notebooks and voila – you’ll have tons of different word targets to help guide students as you do an open-ended activity (ex. legos, a game, free drawing, play-doh, etc).
These are very similar to the fun flaps. Students lift up the tab and write/draw underneath! These types of activities are great for bridging students between different levels of speech. First, they can practice the word and then work on creating phrases or sentences!
I think it’s critical to keep students engaged between turns, especially if you’re conducting group therapy. My number one classroom management tip is to always have your students working on something. I’ve had my fair share of chaos, don’t get me wrong here. haha!
