December Lesson Plans & Activities for Speech & Language
December is such a crazy month and I am always scrambling to get things done. To help with prep time, I decided to plan for the next three weeks all at once. I really want to use some of the great products I have purchased on Teachers Pay Teachers, so this was my chance to sift through my purchases and get organized. I don't have any winter or holiday themed products in my own store, so I'm relying on my fellow TPTers for activities this year. I have so many great items already purchased and a FULL cart for the Cyber Monday sale and I can't wait to use them. (Quick reminder: The sale is on Mon, Nov 30 - Tue, Dec 1. Use the code SMILE at checkout to save an additional 10% off all purchases).
I am sharing a pdf of my plans HERE (dropbox link, but you do not need a dropbox account to view). It's not fancy, but it does have clickable links to each of the products I will be using. Feel free to download and use it as a guide for your planning.
Here are some of the things we will be using in speech over the next few weeks [...]
The Peachie Speechie's Holiday M&M Challenge - My students love these because they get to take their candy home with them at the end of the session. I love them because it helps us keep track of our trials and get 100 in each session. I will pair this activity with my articulation cards and apps.
TLC Talk Shop's Winter Open Ended Games - This will work great paired with my articulation apps on the iPad and my articulation cards (which I will use for data collection before break). I love the different activities included.
Teaching Talking's Roll, Say and Color sheets from her Winter Themed Articulation Packet - These are great because all of my kiddos can have their own page for their target sound, but we can all do the same activity...and they can take their finished product home to practice their words.
Speech in Bag, also by The Peachie Speechie - My kids will love decorating their bags with colors and holiday stickers. Then they will get to take them home to practice over the break.
With my phonological students I will be using Kristine Lamb's Grab N' Go Phonological Processes. I love how organized these packs are. Just grab and go!
Speech Therapy Fun's No Print Christmas Language and Articulation - I am so excited to have a no print activity to use on the iPad or computer. It has several different activities included, but my students will be working on pronouns, wh- questions, and categories.
Panda Speech's No Prep Christmas Language - This packet includes print an go sheets for a variety of goals. I'm especially excited about this one!
I also have several middle school aged students. These groups will be using The Peachie Speechie's I Mustache You a Question Conversation Starters. We will be working on articulation carryover, as well as conversational skills and social skills. I will be collecting data and recording progress using The Speech Bubble's Social Language and Pragmatics Rubrics.
My middle schoolers will also be working on multiple meaning words using the Middle School Multiple Meaning Words Bundle by Natalie Snyders.
I'm still looking for a quick, holiday activity for my middle school students to complete, but our sessions are so quick I may not have time for one. Comment below if you have any suggestions!
