Ok everyone…get excited! This post is going to be a little lengthy but AMAZING! I’ve got some fabulous bloggers ready to share their favorite toys, games, or activities that they have found useful when working with preschoolers. Today we’ll be hearing from Carrie’s Speech Corner, Speech Room News, Communication Station, Let’s Talk SLP, and [simply speech]! Can’t wait to take a peek into their bag of tricks!
I wish I could tell you which one is my favorite, but they are all great! Today I’ll show you a little more of “Old McDonald.” All of the books come with interactive pieces, a board to place the pieces on, Velcro Dots to attach the pieces, and a communication board:
I like to start with the pieces in the book. We remove them as we read the story and place them on the story board. The first time through the story, we focus on imitating the vocabulary words/animal sounds. After I finish this story with the kids, we go through it again (“to clean up”). This time, I target receptive vocabulary identification, asking the students to find a specified image and return it to the book.
These books have simple text and clear illustrations. The interactive pieces are awesome for sustaining the attention of the little guys! I think they are a must have for any SLP working in a preschool setting!
Thanks so much for sharing, ladies!! Be sure to visit their pages and give them a like!
What do y’all think? What kinds of things are in YOUR bag of tricks?? 🙂
