Happy Friday! Today I wanted to share a fun speech-language therapy activity to use for an ocean theme. For this activity you will need: a flashlight and therapy target words related to your kiddo's goals. Easy enough, right? Absolutely! I told the kids we were going "scuba diving" for some of them, we looked up what scuba diving was, and for others we talked about what scuba diving was and the necessary equipment. Then, we turned off the lights, and searched for words that have our sound in them. For some of the kiddos, we used the jellyfish we had made and used the flashlight to help us see our words while we practiced.
There are two great books that go along with the "dark" theme: Fidgety Fish and The Pout-Pout Fish and the Big Big Dark. You may want to read one of these first and then turn off the lights! Both stories have great vocabulary and similes. For example, "I'm as smart as a dolphin".
Hopefully you can use this bright idea!
