Hands-On Language

We don't usually hear these two words go together, why not?  Most of our students with language needs are hands-on learners.  Providing kinesthetics into our speech and language sessions will add fun and excitement to our students' day.  The movement mode of learning will also increase memory retention.  


Here are a couple of ideas to get you started.   

Leap Frog Language:  Print out lily pads found free on http://www.mycutegraphics.com/. Student takes a turn completing his/her target task and then is able to hop on the lily pads which are spaced on the floor throughout the room.  

Hopscotch Speech:  Section off a hopscotch board on your office floor.  You can use colored tape, colored paper, or even go outside and use chalk on your playground.    Student completes a speech or language task (i.e. artic. cards, problem solving cards, idiom cards, naming cards) and tries their turn at hopscotch.



Hopscotch is included in my new 54 page May Speech and Language packet. Click on my TPT site to the right of the screen.
