On Wednesday, my intern brought in this game for the students to play:
One activity she did with the preschoolers was "Thanksgiving Following Directions" from Let's Talk Speech Language Pathology". It hit their vocabulary, following directions, and spatial concepts objectives.
For added reinforcement, the student got to feed the animal. So what if they got a little silly and didn't match the food to the animal?Veteran's Day activity with my school-age students. For the artic students, following production of their target, they turned over a word and decided which column that word belonged. Their choices were "are", "can", and "have". They then wrote the word in the appropriate column.
At least, that's how I started the day. I wised up (a little) after those first 2 groups, and ended up making copies of the words and cutting them out so the students could glue the words in the appropriate column.
My 4th grade language group read a passage about the history of Veteran's Day and underlined the important words/phrases. Following that, they answered questions about the passage. This is a group that really struggles with pretty much all facets of reading, but they did real well with remembering (without me reminding them) to look back in the passage at the underlined words to find the answers.
I've seen a few posts on Facebook about "Pirate Talk", so I decided to pull it out for my walk-in preschooler to play:
Friday morning, I had a small group of 2 walk-in preschoolers. One is working on /k,g/, and the other is working on bilabials and using "my". "My Hungry Turkey" by Expressively Speaking fit the bill!
With my other Friday students, I repeated the Veteran's Day activity. It was something different, but I think the students enjoyed it!
What did you do this week?
