These farm themed speech therapy activities will have you sowing mental crops by the acre.
We have an exciting announcement...we are changing things up a little.
If you receive our free email newsletter, we will continue to send out creative lessons plans and helpful therapy ideas straight to your inbox.
However, we will now be supplementing these lessons plans with optional inexpensive downloads to reduce your planning time to make fun and targeted therapy activities.
Let us do the work for you; you deserve more time to spend with your children helping them achieve their goals.
Target: following directions, reading comprehension
Materials: 8 Empty water bottles, typed single or multi-step directions, a ball
Space the water bottles so they can only knock over 1-2 bottle, or “pin,” per roll of the ball.
Then let your students bowl.
Each time they knock over a pin they must read the directions and follow them.
Download the 24 farm-themed animal pins cutouts with 1, 2, and 3 step directions that include making animal sounds and body movements that relate to the animal on the pin.
Target: receptive language, following directions, listening for prepositions
Materials: Pictures of animal mamas and babies cut into separate cards.
Instructions: Lay the pictures of animal mamas and babies on the table.
Have the students listen carefully as you give them hints on the animal pairs you are looking for.
For example, you can say “This baby misses his mama. He has a beak and his mama lays eggs.”
Then the student will find the baby chick and match him with the mama chicken. This activity incorporates receptive listening skills as well as problem solving.
If you have a student working with prepositions, this is a great activity to put them to use.
Lay out all the animals on the table and give them silly instructions, such as “move the baby turkey beside the mama pig.” Or “Move the kitten on top of the mama cow."
Get the full download pictures of 10 pairs of animals (babies and mamas,) as well as 10 instructions for matching the babies to their mamas and 10 instructions for using prepositions while following directions.
Target: receptive language, following directions, problem solving skills
