Finally, an activity for nearly every tween on your caseload!
Being a school SLP means you must take each student’s schedule into account when planning therapy. Sometimes you have to create a group with one student working on articulation and another student working on language (or fluency). Finding activities that meet everyone’s needs is a challenge, especially for pre-adolescent and adolescent students. These activities are great for mixed groups, as well as groups just working on one skill.
This unit is based around the word “inference”. This packet contains 2 different inference units, called “Kayla” and “Alex”. Each unit features activities for language (including comprehension, vocabulary, grammar, and social skills), articulation, and fluency skills. You can expect to cover each unit in 1-2 sessions.
Why I made this:
When working with tweens, I want my students to learn vocabulary that will help them to access the curriculum. As much as possible, I focus on the "big" concepts and ideas that students will need to use frequently. I asked the 5th grade teachers at my school to tell me the 10 most important words for students to learn, and "inference" was one of those words.
I polled my 5th through 7th graders before creating this unit, and none of them knew what “inference” meant. So, I decided to create a mixed group unit to teach them. After using the unit in therapy, and making a few edits here and there, I'm offering to you in hopes that it will help you too!
