Free January Speech Therapy Plans
Snowmen, hibernation, and penguins are my favorite winter themes speech and language. The new year is here, I’ve packed away all the Christmas activities and it’s time to focus on winter. There are several ways I incorporate these themes into my student’s goals. I’m excited to share some of my favorite January Speech Therapy plans.
You can read my post about my favorite winter picture books HERE. I typically incorporate a picture book each week. During the course of the week, we will read it several times- focusing on different concepts. This post contains Amazon affiliate links if you wish to add anything to your personal library. This is at no cost to you and helps support this blog!
Focus: Winter and Snow. I use the Winter Dice and Dot for articulation and language. It’s NO PREP and comes at word level with snowmen or picture level with snowballs! If you have students working on written expression, download this free New Year’s Goal Writing -it’s updated each year.
Focus: Penguins. I incorporate the book, Tacky the Penguin and use the penguin popper with this penguin popper companion. The kids love the interactive activity. Have students practice their target word list or card deck then they get to have a turn with the poppers. So, the idea is that this reinforcement game is still FUNCTIONAL. I also print off the penguin articulation trial pages from my 100 Trials resource.
The 100 Trials fits perfectly with the 100th day of school typically celebrated around this week depending on your school calendar.
Focus: Hibernation. I recently discovered, A Loud Winter’s Nap. It is a quick read and the kids are loving it! I touch on hibernation concepts and snowflake activities. I will print these snowflake 50 Trial pages and use snowflake mini erasers to cover the targets. For language students, I will print off my No Prep Winter Language pages. *both of these resources are free in my TpT store!
Focus: Snowmen. I use the adorable book, Snowmen at Work. I LOVE this book series. I will also use the snowman popper and the companion HERE. Additionally, I also have a fun melty snowman – available at Amazon, Target, or Barnes and Noble. Build it before you read a book or begin your activity and watch it melt as you work. My kids love racing to see who can cover 50 snowmen first with the Articulation Trials printable.
