Are you looking for engaging winter language activities for your preschool caseload that will help you save time, stress less, and maintain your sanity? Let me help you get through those crazy weeks leading up to winter break with these low to no prep gingerbread activities-- Spend those precious free moments getting your progress reports done instead of prepping your therapy materials!
Here are the goodies you’ll get with this download:
•Instructions on each page so parents understand the language targets you were working on when the activity comes home, AND so that you can send pages for home practice without spending additional time writing notes about what to do with that sheet or what to work on, because #aintnobodygottimeforthat
•4 “Cookie Tray Category” pages: sort the gingerbread cookies to the correct cookie trays; 8 categories total
•5 “Dot the Category” pages: Name the items in each gingerbread house. If it matches the category at the bottom of the page, stamp it!
•3 “Dot and Dash” category pages: Name 3 items per category in the gingerbread houses
•2 Object Function Gingerbread Houses (1 coloring only page, 1 cut/color/glue page)
•1 Verb+Noun gingerbread mini book (2 printing pages total; 8 mini booklet pages)
•1 “Roll and Color” pronoun page
•4 WH-question pages (2 black and white dot/color the answer, 2 Gingerbread Jobs pages in color- use page protectors with these and reuse over and over with dry erase markers, mini erasers, or bingo chips!)
•1 open-ended dot marker page
•4 Cut, color, and glue “go together” pages to target associations— match gingerbread cookies to correct cookie trays
If you are feeling overwhelmed with a growing list of referrals, IEPs, and progress reports, I hear you. I created these materials because I want to make your life EASIER by helping you have fun activities likes these that you can print off and use in a pinch, because let’s be real… sometimes (often??) our therapy sessions are planned about 5 minutes in advance (#realtalk), or we just don't have the time to prep because of paperwork or other commitments. With these materials, you'll be able to just keep hitting "print" and going off to therapy, all December long!
Looking for MORE no to low prep activities? I think you’ll love these, too!
