Cottontails, Ladybugs and Bird’s Nests—A Speechie Springtime Roundup!

 I’ve put together all my springtime ideas into one post!!  If you need a recycling craftivity for Earth Day—I’ve got it!  If you want a fun plastic egg game that addresses language goals—I’ve got that too and if you want to see me in action making a simple and healthy snack, I have a video starring “yours truly” and the cutest little “ladybug” ever!!  All of my craftivities and food themed projects are accompanied by products that you can purchase in my TpT store.   My products are inspired by the hands-on projects I have created.  I hope you can find something that you can use in an upcoming speech/language session. Many of these products and ideas span across a variety of ages, ability levels and are well-suited for life skills groups as well!!  

First,   “Collect the Cottontails” is a game that I created and use with my articulation and language kiddos during the week leading up to Easter.    And I have a FREEBIE word list and game chart available for this game.  Find the  word list FREEBIE in my TeachersPayTeachers Store!  Use it to target specific speech sounds or as a Spring vocabulary list.   You can find the entire post, including the game as well as a recipe for “Cottontail Cookies” here!!

There’s a recipe for BIRD’S NEST COOKIES that are kid-friendly and good for you, craft project that uses recyclable materials to make your very own bird’s nests in the therapy room or at home and a language activity in  my TPT store–Scrambled Eggs!  {cat-EGG-ories, EGG-spressions and EGG-stremely funny crack ups!}  Enjoy all the spring and Easter-themed goodies while you practice good speech and language!   Find the full post here!!!

Then, In honor of Earth Day, which is celebrated on April 22nd each year, I created a book companion activity–Rhyme, Define, Recycle!  It is a book companion activity for the story Michael Recycle by Ellie Bethel.      Then we did some REAL recycling projects!  We used an egg carton to make LITTER BUGS and egg shells to make EGG HEADS—it was messy but fun!  Check it out here!!

Next, I’ve created a kid-friendly snack with a lady bug theme!  You can watch me in the video below as I prepare a healthy snack while practicing some important language concepts.  (But please be kind—I’m not quite ready for the Food Network just yet!!)

Check out my LadyBug Picnic below, and view the entire post here!!!

This inspired me to create a product for my TpT store: LadyBug Picnic Complete Packet: for Articulation & Auditory Processing  This product includes a little something for everyone:  articulation, auditory processing for direction following, story comprehension, and memory skills and categorization—all with a picnic/ladybug theme!


Finally, if you need a vocabulary activity for your middle and high school students, check out Magic Squares Spring Vocabulary. It includes  vocabulary  for: St. Patrick’s Day vocabulary, weather words, basketball terms (March Madness College b-ball!!), color related words, “Spring changes” terms and flower related terms.
