It's the holidays and there are plenty of ways to work on increasing communication skills through play. These handouts help parents utilize common activities to develop those skills.
1 Intro Letter
8 Learning through Play Activity Sheets that target Christmas and Hanukkah
8 Handout Topics:
Decorating the Tree
Holiday Dinner (not religion specific)
Getting a Tree
Playing with a Dreidel
Lighting the Menorah
Giving Gifts (both holidays)
Each of the 8 included Learning Through Play handouts features a different holiday activity for either Christmas or Hanukkah. An intro letter encourages parents to use every day play to facilitate communication skills. Each page features one language idea, one speech idea, a target vocab list, and a concept to focus on.
Take it easy on yourself with this no-prep holiday packet for preschool (and Kindergarten too) aged students. I don't send anything else home with my students as homework! This is it!
Used without the intro letter, these handouts are perfect for leaving with parents at the end of a speech therapy session or posted in hallways and offices!
