Happy March! I love doing themed therapy and celebrating holidays in speech, so I wanted to share some activities I’m doing to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in my speech room!
We are going to be reading two books, The Night Before St. Patrick’s Day by Natasha Wing, and Lucky Tucker by Leslie McGuirk.
Along with the books, we will be using some simple wh- questions with choices. Click here to download the companion for Lucky Tucker, and here to download the companion for The Night Before St. Patrick’s Day. Both are FREE!
We are also playing with our St. Patrick’s Day sensory bottle!
I love using sensory bottles in speech, and I have a whole blog post about how I like to make them and use them! Click here to read that post and get some ideas!
My younger kids will be using my St. Patrick’s Day Early Language Activities.
I love to use the pictures from the vocabulary match mats in sensory bins to create an interactive and engaging session! I also put cut up ribbon from a banner, mini pots, and gold coins in the bin! Click here to check out my St. Patrick’s Day Early Language Activities.
Some of my early elementary students will be using my St. Patrick’s Day Early Inferencing Book.
These activities are great to work on inferencing, vocabulary, describing, and more! Click here to check out my St. Patrick’s Day Early Inferencing Activities.
For articulation, we will be using Shamrock Articulation Board Games.
These are great for getting a ton of trials! I love to pair them with mini erasers, clickers, and timers to get extra trials and engagement. I also print them in black and white to send home for homework! Click here to check out my Shamrock Articulation Board Games!
My preschoolers are using my St. Patrick’s Day Dog-Themed Interactive Book!
These dog-themed books have a ton of repetitive language and gross motor directions that my preschoolers love! They’re always so engaged and we have so much fun learning vocabulary and following directions! Click here to check out my St. Patrick’s Day Dog-Themed Interactive Book!
All of my students are making a craft for the door.
This craft was SO EASY and it turned out so cute! I had the kids put glue on a clover that I cut out and put the clover in a bag of glitter. Then we shook the bag up and got to see what got stuck to our clover! Super easy and worked well for all ages!
I send home homework a lot and for that I’m sending home pages from my No Prep March resource. Click here to check that out!
I hope this post helped you get some ideas! What are you doing for St. Patrick’s Day?
