I just returned from a family beach vacation and was inspired to create this resource by a rustic sign I saw hanging in our condo building-- it pointed the way towards the beach and was decorated with various beach-themed items such as a crab and seashell. You never know when SLP inspiration will strike! ;)
Have your client/student decorate their own beach sign using the colorful clipart pictures provided or your own pictures (such as those containing the student's speech sounds). For each item I have included, there is another very similar item; in order to request an item, the student will need to be specific and use adjectives/attributes! The similarities also lend themselves well to comparing/contrasting.
This resource can be used for:
•Describing items, either by giving clues for another to guess or using attributes/adjectives when selecting each item
•Naming items when described (i.e., describe each item for the student to guess, with or without the items as visuals)
•Increasing expressive vocabulary through labeling and description
•Following multi-step directions (e.g., first/then, three step, directions with conditions or before/after) using the pictures
•Increasing comprehension and use of location or position/sequence concepts (e.g., next to, first/next/last in line) by positioning the pictures
•Comparing/contrasting two similar pictures
•Explaining word relationships (e.g., “How do ‘sunglasses’ go with ‘beach’?)
•Answering "why" questions (e.g., "Why do people wear sunglasses?")
•Giving and following directions using specific vocabulary, attributes/adjectives, and specific location concepts– print two signs and two clipart pages, then use as a barrier activity
