Finding an activity that is flexible enough to address a variety of speech and language goals can be challenging. Use Feed the Chef to work on pronouns, categories, and at least eight other goals. Preschool through first grade students find feeding the chefs highly rewarding. Children love to "feed" the chefs different food which holds their attention longer - making the children progress faster.

The number of foods included allows SLPs to target a wide variety of goals not just pronouns and categories. This makes it easy to prep and plan for therapy sessions.

Potential Goals:

  • Subject pronouns (he, she, they, I, we)
  • Object pronouns (him, her, them, we, you)
  • Possessive nouns and pronouns (chef’s, his, hers, theirs)
  • Using plurals
  • Asking or answering who questions
  • Asking or answering what questions
  • Building vocabulary
  • Sorting food into categories
  • Naming categories
  • Naming the odd food out.
  • Describing the food
  • Pronunciation of various sounds
  • Pronunciation of multisyllabic words
  • Sort by the number of syllables in a word.

To play: Set up the chefs. Cereal boxes, larger plastic food storage containers, or book stands work well. Once you have decided what goals you are working on, pick the appropriate food and lay it out. Then have the children feed the chefs as they are completing the activity or once they have asked the question. Use the chefs like puppets and have them talk and respond to the food that they have eaten. This makes the activities more engaging, and you will find that the children stay longer.

Here's what you get:

  • One girl chef
  • One boy chef
  • 103 different types of food.
  • Card covers to better organize the different types of food
  • Description of activities
  • Artic word lists

Note: Some foods are found predominately in Canada. They are labeled as such.
