It's time for another AWESOME Frenzied SLPs link up! Two weeks ago, I gave you some Halloween-themed ideas for articulation, and today I'll leave you with a few for language activities.
1. Books, books, and more books: Of course, one of my very favorite activities for language development is book reading. It's so great for introducing vocabulary, listening comprehension activities, Wh-question activities for recalling story details, story sequencing and retelling of stories. So naturally it would be #1 on my list. But what books to choose? Well I wrote a whole blog post on my favorite Halloween themed books. Check out the full post here!
2. Creepy Crawly Categories: Working on semantic mapping anyone? Here is a simple fun way to work on category item sorting/naming with a spider theme just in time for your Halloween fun! Check out more here!
3. Social Story: Trick or Treating! I made a simple social story for a few of my students who have social communication deficits and you can grab your copy here!
So these are just a few of my fun ways to use Halloween themed activities to work on language and social communication! What are yours?
