Thanksgiving, speech therapy, following directions, matching sentences to pictures, same/different, listening, attributes, language, multi-step directions, if/then
Looking for some great language activities that focus on listening, following directions, similarities and differences, attributes, and matching sentences for comprehension? Well here it is!
Multi-step directions and if/then pages:
Make copies of the coloring pages for each student. Read the directions to your students and record the data. After the students finish all of the directions I usually let my students finish coloring the page the way they would like. This also gives me a chance to finish collecting my data and drill articulation words, etc!
I also work with all of my kids on following directions, it helps with all areas of classroom skills and makes them careful listeners!
Thanksgiving Round-Up: Have your students follow the directions to find the one that is different in the row. This encourages visual skills and the understanding of same and different. Get them to describe what the difference is in the picture that does not fit.
Thanksgiving Attributes: These would be great laminated to use with a vis-à-vis pen to circle the correct statement. I love these because they could be laminated and cut out into strips and used in centers or kept whole and put in a book. They also copy well if you want to print and go!
Matching the Sentence: Some simple history trivia for Thanksgiving comprehension! Laminate the sentence pages and the picture cards and use Velcro as the directions say. Read the sentence for your little friends and let your bigger friends read them to themselves. Match the correct picture to the sentence. Did you know there were two dogs on the Mayflower? Well there were, a bull mastiff and a spaniel! I will bet your students know a thing or two about a great American holiday when you finish this unit!
