November Speech Therapy
“What’s in your box, Mrs. Elizabeth?”
So, I’m here today to share some organization tips and tricks, some free printables, and some links to great resources for November speech therapy!
First off, I use tote boxes by season. I use these very cute Monthly Labels and have 4 boxes: Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. I change them out in the back of my car every 3 months and always have my evaluation box with me.
Visual Schedule (I use this with children whether we are face to face or in teletherapy format)
There is some controversy over using first…then schedules. I find it helpful to use this simple version for students he may only need to see two items at a time. I don’t use it as a reward system, but as a visual cue to demonstrate what is now and what is next. You can read more about structuring your sessions here.
In November, my box usually has the following:
Adaptive books, task boxes, and work task notebooks. For my more concrete learners, I also typically use a “Finished Box” to the right.
Some of my favorite activities are: “Tom the Turkey Lost his Feathers” adaptive book and coloring page by Panda Speech, There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Turkey, Turkey Themed Work Notebooks by Autism Adventures, Thanksgiving unit by 3 Dinosaurs, and seasonal task boxes by Especially Education.
Silly Turkeys adaptive book/interactive book and Boom Cards. Comes with coloring page.
How to Catch a Turkey by Adam Wallace is a fun story from a big series. I’ve created a digital book companion on Boom Learning that you can download for FREE here!
- Here is a one page vocabulary sheet for fall. There are versions in color and black and white. You could use the black and white for coloring, homework, or using dot markers. The color version could be put in a wipeable envelope or laminated for use as a smash mat, bingo marker, etc. The black and white version is a freebie!
- There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves and There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Turkey both work well for November.. I have been using a wig and glasses in teletherapy, which the kiddos find hilarious!
It never hurts to dress up and have fun!
- One of my favorite games for fall: Sneaky Snacky Squirrel.
- Sneaky Snacky Squirrel targets colors, counting, etc.
For a Silly Turkey Theme…here are my favorite games for articulation:
