October always seems too short to me. We have Fall Break during the 1st full week of October, so I don't get to use a lot of cool Halloween materials because there just isn't time.
For younger kids working on increasing MLU and producing complete sentences, emergent readers are the way to go. Using them in therapy also works on vocabulary and "wh" questions! I explain how I use them in this post.
Working on basic concepts and/or following directions? I use these boxes and erasers from a dollar store as manipulatives.
I bought some stretchy skeletons a few years ago, but I have no idea where I got them from. There are 4 skeletons in 4 different colors (for a total of 16 skeletons). I put a plastic jack-o-lantern on the floor, and put a piece of yarn in a line on the floor. The student stands behind the line, and tries to get his skeleton in the jack-o-lantern. I did this with my preschool group, and they had to tell me where the skeleton landed (working on concepts).
This isn't really language related, but I put dice in this "haunted house". The kids shook the house, opened it up, and found out how many spaces they were allowed to go on "the big board" (Speech Slides & Ladders by Sublime Speech).
Thank you so much for Annie from Doyle's Speech Works for hosting this month! All Y'all Need and Twin Speech Language and Literacy LLC also worked in the background. If you're a blogger, join us and share your Halloween Language Ideas!
