also love the holidays. There are so many fun ways to work on communication
around Halloween. I wanted to take some time today and give you a peak inside
my Halloween inspired therapy activities.
I am working with younger or older students, I always make sure that the
pictures that I use are real photographs. I find that for younger and older
students alike, these types of pictures are often times more engaging. Also
when I am working with older students who may have more intense language
needs, they are an age appropriate way to deliver services.
is Let’s Talk About Halloween. This story can be printed out and bound like a
book, shown on an ipad, used on a computer or put on a smart board. It is so
wonderful because it allows the students to fill in the blanks along the way
for shared reading. After we are done reading the book, I read aloud fill in
the blank phrases about the story. The students can practice using the
vocabulary from the story to help recall details. If I am working with students
who are working on answering and asking social questions, I ask them the questions
at the end of the story. Having a conversation about what we will be for
Halloween and what candy is our favorite is always fun to do during therapy.
