We have been super busy around Wee Speech Therapy. I haven't gotten a chance to sit down and share what we have been doing in August. We recently moved to a new building so we hosted an Open House for our parents and the clinicians in the area. Guess what? I forgot to take pictures! We had a great time and it was so great getting to meet the office managers from doctor's offices that we speak to on the phone regularly.
We continued with our weekly themes for the first two weeks in August before the kids went back to school. For the first week, we learned about Superhero's and Princesses. We encouraged the kids to come dressed as their favorite superheros or princesses. Our therapist's even dressed as Fancy Nancy!
(But I was the only one who allowed my picture to be taken :) )
For crafts, the boys made their own superhero masks. I found the template on Google images. They colored the masks and added decorative jewels and stickers.
The girls made crowns from construction paper and streamers.
We found these crowns at Dollar Tree for the girls who didn't come dressed up. We also called our local Burger King and got free birthday crowns for the boys.
It was a great week. The kids especially enjoyed dressing up. Here are some links to fun Princess and Superhero activities that I found over at Speech Room News. Jenna is awesome and she has the greatest ideas!
Our last summer theme was Back to School! We are so sad that summer is over and our kids are headed back to school! We have had a great time with our summer program but we hope to continue with monthly themes soon.
For Back to School week, I found this 'wh' question game board over at speechtimefun.blogspot.com
This was great practice for our language kids. We challenged the artic kids to find answers that used their target sounds.
Dollar Tree is our favorite place to find therapy tools. Miss Elizabeth found these huge dice for $1. The kids absolutely love them. We used the huge dice and chipper chat tokens as game pieces for this activity.
The kids started school this Monday. We can't wait to hear all about their first week back!
