With this Thanksgiving Speech and Language Activity, students create a Thanksgiving Favorite Things Booklet by choosing from visual choices.

It encourages sharing opinions with peers for students who benefit from visual choices. (Plus, it can be differentiated for many levels, making it perfect for speech groups!)

As an SLP, I have used “favorite things booklets” in small groups as well as in 1:1 sessions, particularly with students on the autism spectrum. It is ideal for special education classrooms, speech therapy, or for preschools.

**This resource is part of my Favorite Things Bundle and my Early Language MEGA Bundle at a big discount!**

To Use: Just cut the pages apart and staple on the side to make booklets for each student. The final pages are visual choices for each question.

Included: There are five "Thanksgiving favorite things" pages plus a cover. Questions include favorite Thanksgiving food, dessert, activity, way to help cook, and thing to watch. There are 4-6 visual choices per question. (Click "view preview" to see the entire resource)

Ideas for Differentiation:

• Read the question and choices aloud and have the student touch his choice. Help the student glue on his answer.

• OR have the student touch her choice, glue it, and then have the student repeat the word after you model it (verbally or via AAC).

• OR help the student read the question and/or label the choices as able. Have the student glue on the item and then write his answer next to the picture.

• OR after going over the question, show the student the visual choices but have her write the item and draw a picture instead of gluing the picture.

• OR after presenting the question, see if the student can generate an answer himself. If not offer verbal suggestions and finally visual choices.

In a small group setting, some students might be gluing answers while others will be writing/drawing!
