Help me give my students sensory bins to use during speech therapy. I have requested items to fill sensory bins used in therapy to enrich their speech and language learning through hands on experiences!
I am a speech language pathologist who works with students with speech and language delays and disabilities. My students are in both regular education and special education classes. Most of my students receive pull-out therapy sessions in my speech and language therapy room. My students range from pre-kindergarten to fifth grade.
We are a Title I school, and although my students face many hardships, I want them to learn that they can set goals and become successful.
I love making my classroom a place kids want to be and love coming to every day.
It is important to keep your students engaged during Pre-K speech and language therapy sessions. For that reason, I try to integrate books, board games and other hands on activities to keep my students engaged and on task during therapy.
For each season, I will create a sensory box to go along with my themed therapy sessions.
The sensory box will include manipulatives that go along with the theme. The students will use tweezers and/or shovels to dig through the box to find the items. We then target goals as we identify/express vocabulary, practice correct speech sound production, answer 'wh' questions about the objects, demonstrate understanding of basic concepts (color, size, prepositions, etc.), and MORE!
