Speech Therapy lesson plans for December
There are so many great books and activities for using in speech therapy during December. Therapy can get a bit crazy this month because there are always parties and class events that often disrupt our schedules. I try to just roll with it. Below are some ideas you can incorporate into your lesson plans! You can download the free December lesson plans below and if you’d like an editable template to create your own monthly plans, click HERE to purchase on Teachers Pay Teachers.
December Therapy Plans Week 1:
Bear Stays Up and Bear’s First Christmas are two of my all time favorite Christmas books to use in speech. They are both sweet but have really great vocabulary and plot. They are both included in my free Christmas Language Bookmarks!
I try to do one craft as a Christmas gift for parents. But, any craft I do, must still be functional! Get the ornament and candy cane Dice and Dot crafts from my TpT store – you can use them all month to decorate your speech room then send home to parents at break!
If you have articulation students, you MUST be working toward higher reps in speech. It’s an evidence-based practice! Download these free 50 and 100 Christmas Trial pages to use in therapy. They are companions to the new Target mini erasers but kids can color them or use dot markers too!
December Therapy Plans Week 2:
If you need a no prep option, download Christmas Build-A-Face! You can use the elf or the Santa version for all your articulation and language goals. However, if your kids are a little stir crazy and you need something more engaging, download the Christmas ball popper companions using a Santa or Reindeer ball popper!
December Therapy Plans Week 3 and Week 4:
I know most people will not be working, but maybe some of you work in a private clinic and are still seeing kids between Christmas and New Year. If you are not working, just get some ideas to mix in earlier in the month!
Go with a no prep option because with all the Christmas priorities you have, this is a no brainer! Christmas Dice and Dot comes in picture and word level options. Print and go- everyone can be doing the same activity but working on their individual goals! win-win
I love the books Mr. Willowby’s Christmas Tree, The 12 Sleighs of Christmas, Snowmen At Christmas, and the Not So Merry Pout Pout Fish. They are included in my free book companion downloads for Christmas. Challenge kids to get in more reps with the FREE 50 and 100 Trials for Christmas.
