NO PRINT & NO PREP / Telepractice & In-Person
“When Simon went walking, which he does every day, he thought of things that begin with letter A…” Children have fun learning the alphabet as Simon walks them through this fun and engaging alphabet routine. Rhyming couplets introduce each letter which is then presented with a field of target words. For example “Aa” is presented with apple, alphabet, ambulance, alligator, and alpaca.
CLINICAL TARGET MASH-UP: More than just alphabet identification! This activity is chock-full of pre-literacy targets. SLPs will find opportunities to promote rhyme, alliteration, print awareness, and more.
This activity provides a comfortable way for students struggling with pronoun “I” to practice this skill. Engage in turn taking on each field of vocabulary targets to model and have the student practice “I” at the phrase level. The routine may go as follows:
Clinician: I see an alpaca. What do you see, eHelper?
eHelper: I see an ambulance.
Clinician: What do you see, client?
Client: I see an apple!
Ample indirect modeling opportunities allow students to gain independence and take pride in their success.
BONUS: Basic alphabet “flashcards” are included at the end of this activity as a quick and easy way to target alphabet knowledge.
