Holiday Social Skills Game for Speech and Language

Hi speechies!

We are in full on holiday mode during my speech sessions right now! I created this game for my older crowd and wanted to share it because it's been a hit:

Here's the deal:
  • There are 20 holiday-based social scenarios crumpled up as "snowballs" and put in the brown bag.
  • The kids take turns pulling a snowball out of the bag and reading the social situation. We work through the scenarios together. 
  • Following each scenario the questions listed are: How can this situation be handled in an expected manner? What would be an unexpected way to handle this situation? We use the terms "expected" and "unexpected" behavior at my school.

It's so simple but my kiddos LOVE reaching into the brown bag! It keeps them engaged and excited about what we're doing.

You can grab this social skills activity in my TpT Store now!

Snowman and Gingerbread Man Compare/Contrast Activity

Hi speechies!

I just whipped up this activity for my younger kiddos and just had to share because it's so cute! If you haven't caught on - I am LOVING holiday themed activites!

I'm all about making normal activities as engaging as possible so I thought an interactive Venn diagram would be a great way to get the kids up and moving.

So here's the rundown:

1. Set up 2 hula hoops so that they resemble a Venn diagram. Label one side with "snowman" and the other with "gingerbread man." 

2. Put all of the descriptive cards in Santa's bag (aka a brown paper bag with clip art of a Santa sack) and have the kids take turns pulling one out.

3. Have the kiddo place the card in the correct part of the diagram.

BOOM! Simple, engaging, and festive! My kind of therapy activity! You can scoop this product up in my TpT store :)

DIY Holiday Gift Tags

Hi speechies!

We are officially in December and I want to stay ahead of the game so I decided to start working on my co-workers' gifts now. I made little gift tags to accompany them and I loved how they turned out so I wanted to share.

Aren't they so fun?! So there are 12 different tags and 3 sets of those 12 tags - 1. Colored graphics with a red border 2. Colored graphics with a black border 3. All black and white

The 12 gift tags read:

  • Happy Holidays
  • Merry Christmas
  • Merry and Bright
  • There's Snowone Like You
  • Making Spirits Bright
  • You Sleigh
  • Joy to the World
  • Holly Jolly
  • Christmas Cheer
  • Ho Ho Ho
  • Deck the Halls
  • Jingle Bells

You just print (I like to use card stock), cut, and attach to your gifts! Super easy way to spruce up a gift for someone at school (or anywhere, really).

You can grab these tags in my TpT Store or by clicking here!
