Kids love to show their ‘owies, ouchies, and boo boo’s.’ This simple activity is designed for little ones learning body parts and answering ‘where’ questions, as well as for children who are learning to produce early consonant and vowel combinations and have a need to practice them in multiple repetitions (owies, ouchies, boo boo). The activities can be used with minimally verbal children as well as those who are using word combinations.
Print and laminate all pages. Use singly or bind into a book (pp. 2-18). Cut out bandaids on page 19. Place a resusable glue dot on the back of each one. I made these bandaids 2-1/2 inches for little hands to manipulate more easily.
Examples of where questions/body parts could include:
Where is Tia’s owie?
Where is Declan’s ouchie?
Where is Luke’s boo boo?
Examples of multiple repetitions could include:
What is the matter with Vivi’s knee? “She has an owie." or “owie"
What happened to Peter? “He has a boo boo.” or “boo boo”
Why is Sophie wearing a bandaid on her thumb? “She has an “ouchie” or “ouchie.”
Have children place bandaid’s on different body parts as directed (following simple directions), or have them tell you on which body part they put a bandaid (body parts and/or use of preposition “on” + body part for word-combintions)
