What a fun way to practice your speech articulation or language goals and make a super sweet watermelon craft lantern in therapy. This is such a great way to keep those little hands busy and motivated! Items that you will need on hand for this project will include: scissors, glue, stapler, and colored paper! The lantern is very easy to assemble. I have included photo instructions on assembly.
Every sound in every position plus blends are included. You have 9 words for every initial sound, 5 medial position words and 4 final position of words. With the exception of /y/ and /ng/. You can have the students color the lantern or you can use colored paper. If you decide not to use color paper, please allow more time to complete the lantern.
Articulation sounds include:
s blends initial (6 words)
r blends initial (6 words)
L blends initial (6 words)
Language concepts included:
Antonyms (9 words with 9 antonyms) *visuals included*
Synonyms (9 words with 9 synonyms) *visuals included*
Rhyming (9 words with 9 rhyming words) *visuals included*
Wh Questions (9 mixed wh questions: what, who, when, where, why, how)
Nouns (regular and irregular plurals 9 mixed) *visuals included*
Object Function (9 objects) *visuals included*
Adjectives (9 words to describe)
1-step directions (9 direction strips)
2-step directions (9 direction strips)
3-step directions (9 direction strips)
Homophones (9 different homophone sets) *visuals included*
Homonyms (9 different homonym sets) *visuals included*
Action Verb Questions (9 different questions) *visuals included*
I have also included a blank sheet without the words so that if you have a student in your group working on fluency or another area of language, you can quickly write down objectives for their goal as well. How adorable would the these lanterns be sitting on a window sill or a bookshelf in your therapy room? I have included photo images in the directions to help you see how to create the craft. Send this fun craft home for some extra reinforcement.
Thanks so much for your interest in my product!
