Slug Say What? is my way of using bugs to facilitate good communication skills! In my classroom I have always used voice bubbles with students with autism who are struggling with communication. The student may not say hello to you, but he might have the slug say hello.
For students with no communication issues, they always have a fun time creating jokes with their bugs and use them for more complex communication.
Good luck in class and I hope you have fun making the slugs speak!
