Therapy, reports, shopping, cooking, assessments, wrapping, baking, documentation, billing, parties, decorating, more work…. you know the drill! I love the holidays, I really do. But it can stress you out, with everything that has to be done. How to survive it?
Take advantage of the great products available on Teachers pay Teachers to make your December easier, and you concentrate on family rather than therapy planning. Tpt sellers have done the work for you, yea!
The TpT Cyber Sale coming December 1st-2nd. Planning done? Check! And at bargain prices too! Be sure to use the code TPTCYBER to get the full discount.
Stop by Speech Sprouts Store and pop some of these goodies in your cart, and you will have December (and beyond) all wrapped up!
My kids adore this book. At night while the world is sleeping, these snowmen go out and have the most frozen fun ever! The story sparks the young imagination, and everyone loves to take turns telling what THEY would do if they were a snowman at night.
This pack has so many activities, you will find something for all the PK- 4th graders on your caseload. Wh? and Yes/No questions, categories, story sequencing and re-tell, prediction, inference, definitions, phonological awareness and articulation of s-blends, r, l, and s!
Will you be the first one to build your snowman? The Build a Snowman Game is a hit with all ages. Roll the dice and collect the snowman parts. Or color, cut and assemble your own for a craftivity.
Need an open-ended game?
Pick up Winter Vocabulary Games and you get 3 games in one: one for December, January and February! The kids love drawing the cards to see who can be the first to spell the word (Santa, Winter or Hearts)
I do push-in services as well as pull-out services for my littles. I love creating packs that are versatile, so I can pull one resource and be set. Where is Rudolph? has me covered!
I wrote this cute repetitive story to target Where? questions. The kids love lifting the Velcroed story pieces to see if they can find Rudolph. They join in as I read “Is he under the _____? No, he’s not! But no worries, Santa does find him in time for his midnight ride!
The story is also presented in an animated PowerPoint version- go paperless if you like. After the story, choose from activities to cover prepositions, Hot/Cold categories, same/different, associations, plurals, phonological awareness, and story re-tell. Puzzles, game, dot marker sheets, dough mats… this one resource may be all you need for your littles.
Need a fun Christmas activity for groups?
Push in to the classroom, have small group fun or double up groups to get your caseload covered. You can handle it with Christmas Bingo Riddles.
This resource was in my last post,What’s in Your Cart? but it bears repeating. My kiddos literally beg to play Bingo riddles, and the Christmas version is loads of fun. With 28 boards, you can target listening, critical thinking, describing, rhyme and vocabulary with any size group. Yea! Awesome therapy session accomplished.
