This resource contains fun facts and informative paragraphs for students to practice recalling facts and listening for details. The facts and stories are about animals, space, holidays, sports, geography, history, and more.
Activity 1: Practice recalling facts throughout the speech session. Tell your student the fact at the beginning of the session. You can talk about how weird or cool the fact is. Then, switch to a new activity, and set a timer for anywhere from 5-15 minutes, depending on the student’s current level. When the timer goes off, ask your student if they can remember what the fact is. If they are having trouble recalling, give them verbal clues and/or practice visualization techniques. This activity can also be fun for groups, and can be used as a game to see which student can recall the fact. The facts are separated into 2 categories- facts with 1 detail and facts with 2 details.
*The facts can also be used as prompts to get your students talking for conversation samples and additional expressive language or articulation in sentences/conversation tasks.
Activity 2: Read the short story to your student and then ask wh- recall questions regarding the paragraph. You can add a 1 - 2 minute delay before asking the recall questions to make the activity more challenging. After the student answers the four questions about the paragraph, you can have them work on retelling the short passage as an expressive language task. There are 12 paragraphs with 4 questions for each paragraph. (48 questions total)
