I had a really hard time deciding what to upload. I have created a few materials over my spring break (since I had time to waste and was very excited to procrastinate studying). Most of the materials I created are Spring related activities. I just can't help it! I'm excited for Spring!
Alright, I have decided to upload my Fun with Flowers activity. It's language AND speech related! Yes, I did get this idea from a pin on Pinterest, and it was pinned from The Teachers' Lounge. Well, I kind of reworked it and made it my own. This activity is really easy to use with language or articulation children, and it keeps them motivated and gets them excited because they get to create their own flowers!
Example of blue flower
1. Let each student pick the flower they want to build. In the packet I've uploaded, the students can choose between a blue (see above), green, orange, or color-your-own flower.
2. You do have to cut your own stems. Just use some green construction paper and cut it into strips. It's really easy to do.
3. Use the leaves in your therapy session! For articulation: write the artic word on each stem and have your student say it until you're satisfied. For language: write the "wh" question, synonym/antonym, or category on the leaf and have the student complete their turn. Finally, they can glue the leaf onto their stem while you work with the next student.
4. Let the students take their flowers home or showcase them in your therapy room!
Now, the upload that I made has both a language and an articulation activity. For language I wrote categories on each leaf and the child would be instructed to name items in the category in order for them to glue the leaf on their flower. For articulation, I created some /r/ words. There is initial, medial, and final /r/.
