PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Leprechaun Trap Challenge idea is a great way to target a variety of communication skills while bringing some engineering into your therapy!

Gather some materials you have around your home or speech room. Here is what I found while organizing my classroom (not included in your download):

index cards
plastic gold coins
plastic leprechaun hats
shamrock cut-outs
straws
popsicle sticks

cardboard/boxes/paper rolls
string
ribbon
plastic spoons
paper plates
napkins

plastic cups
foil
tape
glue
glitter
scissors

Have each of your small groups of students plan and execute the designing and building of a leprechaun trap using the materials you provide.
As an option, you can have students cut out and color a leprechaun (pg. 6). Three sizes are includes depending on the size of your traps. You want the leprechaun to fit inside! I am not planning to give my students very many instructions/expectations in order for this to be an open-ended communication activity involving peer interaction. The challenge is to design a leprechaun trap. We will be learning all about leprechauns using my Leprechaun Speech and Language Unit.

Below are a sampling of the possible communication targets that I will be prompting for/eliciting during the challenge. Use the worksheet (pg. 4 or 5) for students to draw their finished trap and select targets addressed during the challenge. This is a great home communication sheet to send with each student. There is also a worksheet (pg. 7) that may be used for observing and talking about the traps made by other groups.

Carryover of speech sounds in conversation, increasing utterances, past/present/future tense sentences, pronouns, conjunctions, complex sentence structures, following and understanding directions, understanding target vocabulary and concepts, using specific vocabulary and making associations. taking another’s perspective, verbal sequencing, turn taking and conversational skills, executive functioning, listening/attending and topic maintenance, and fluent speaking.
