Be prepared to save time and have more fun in speech this year! This packet covers TWELVE different winter themes including: winter, snowmen, winter sports, New Year's Eve, hot cocoa and marshmallows, hats and mittens, bears/hibernation, and arctic animals, groundhogs, Valentine's Day, basketball and soup.
For EACH theme, I have included two picture book titles, two crafts, and two activities. These activities and crafts are fairly simple, and can be completed using basic materials including tape, paper plates, construction paper, scissors, glue, etc… Included is…
•A theme overview page
•2 pages with names of each craft, activity, and book for the entire packet
•1 page overviews for each theme
•Detailed pages for the crafts and activities for each theme; there is a real picture of each craft and activity as well as ideas for how to modify them to meet a variety of articulation and language goal areas!
•Any additional printables for all of the crafts and activities
Included in the packet is:
•Lesson plan file (57 pages)
•Articulation mini cards file (72 pages)
•Language mini cards file (17 pages)
•Editable theme overview pages (13 pages)

The majority of the crafts utilize mini cards, which are also included in the packet. The articulation mini cards contain 35 cards each for p, b, m, h, w, y, d, n, t, k, g, ng, f, v, ch, j, l, s-blends, s, z, sh, th, and r. All sounds have initial, medial, and final pages except: h, w, y (only initial), ng (only final), and r. The r section has a page for initial r, as well as 1 page each for air, ar, ear, er, ire, and or. Of note: the th and r pages contain only words, no pictures, in order to save ink! The language mini packet contains cards targeting: verbs, adjectives, pronouns, and core vocabulary. There are 6 additional pages of cards containing pictures to describe (e.g., categories, function), compare and contrast, etc.. .
If that’s not enough, I’ve included an editable file so you can add in the materials YOU love to use in an “Other” box on each theme overview page.
These lesson plans work great for both individual and group sessions. I primarily work with children ages 1-8, with some older children who are minimally verbal or who use AAC. This works for my ENTIRE caseload, however I understand that this packet might not work for your entire caseload. If you have a child that you would do crafts, basic activities, and pictures books with, I would recommend this product.
