Materials Needed: Ink pad or paint, thumbprint pages, & a black marker (for bees, spider, & frogs). I also keep wet wipes handy for when students want to change colors (and for clean up).
Optional Assembly: You could also place them in a sheet protector or laminate to use with play dough.
To use: The student will practice the target word and then make a thumbprint over each target word to create an object (leaf, frog, spider, bee, light, or balloon). The student will place their thumb on an ink pad and then stamp it over the target word on the oval. The therapist will determine the number or trials per bee.
Use play dough to make the objects over the word.
Use bingo chips to place over the words
Use bingo dotters
