Here is an interactive activity for speech therapy, early childhood, ELA, and/or Special Ed . The Interactive Boxes Activity is designed to get students talking about common containers (boxes) in their environment and the associated objects that go into the containers. Each set of two pages is a picture of the box, then a picture of the box with items in it. The last box, a gift box, gives students opportunities to expand their knowledge and talk about what could be in a gift box, who could receive the gift box, what color their gift box and bow could be, etc.
Use the activity to name common objects, categorize objects, or expand on a topic using one or more sentences.
