These handouts contain summer activities and ways to increase speech and language when engaging in these activities.
These enrichment activities provide repetition of core vocabulary and concepts through different types of experiences, which allows children to have plenty of practice and build on their cognitive representations of language concepts through play. The more varied the experiences are, the richer the language opportunities are, and the stronger the concepts become.
Also, if you are working on specific speech sounds, it gives you lots of ways to practice speech production within a meaningful context, which is much more likely to generalize.
As an Early Intervention SLP I leave these with families to work on language until our next visit then I give them another activity they can do. As an early elementary SLP and preschool SLP in the schools, I print out the letter to parents and jot down the students goals on the letter and all the activities to send home for them to practice their speech during the summer.
These hand outs are in black and white to make for easy printing, and the activities come in English and Spanish. There are 7 activities, both in English and Spanish and 1 letter home to parents. The letter home to families is not Translated.
