So many themes in February and of course it’s the shortest month – it can be hard to fit it all in! Black History month, Valentine’s Day, and President’s Day are the main themes I cover in Speech Therapy. You can download the free February Speech Therapy calendar below.

Feb. 1 is National Bubble Gum Day and I LOVE letting my students chew gum while we read the book, POP! The Invention of Bubble Gum. All my students love books about inventions and who doesn’t love gum?! It’s a great opportunity to work on compare/contrast between brands and flavors. You can also incorporate sequencing and “how to” writing. I use THIS RESOURCE for how to blow a bubble writing.
Feb. 2 is Groundhog Day – I often read Groundhog Gets a Say – such a cute book with interesting facts told from the perspective of the Groundhog!
The Super Bowl is always a fun time in early February in my speech room. Several years ago, I made a fun FREE lapbook and I update it every year depending on who is playing…Tom Brady has been in it a lot, lol. You can grab it HERE.
Then, it’s all things LOVE and KINDNESS in speech. You can read about my favorite books and download the language bookmarks to use with them HERE. I also print off these popular 100 Articulation Trials – they are free in my TpT store!
Some of my other favorite go-to, no prep activities are Valentine’s Day Dice & Dot For Speech & Language and Valentine’s Day Color and Say! They both are great for mixed articulation & language groups.
After Valentine’s week, I switch my focus to President’s Day. My best-selling President’s Day Lap Book is a wonderful way to incorporate non-fiction elements into therapy. I also found this great book that I use, Looking at Lincoln. The artwork is beautiful and it helps kids see how relevant and influential Lincoln still is… just look at the penny and $5 bill! It’s a great way to use a more curriculum-based speech therapy approach. The penny pages from my Articulation Trials activity is great to pair with articulation!
The last week of February, I will incorporate Dental Health Month and Black History Month. I love the Berenstain Bears Going to the Dentist for my younger kids and Dr. DeSoto (all time favorite book) for older kids. I also use the How To Writing for How to Brush My Teeth. For Black History, to me it’s important to look at Biographies of influential Americans of color. Some of my favorite books are: Salt In His Shoes, Martin’s Big Words, The Story of Ruby Bridges, Shaking Things Up, and Mae Among The Stars.
