Weather Themed Lessons Plans for Speech Therapy
Weather Themed Lesson Plans for Speech Therapy
Rain or shine, speech therapists carry on! My students love going up to my window and reporting on the weather like mini meteorologists! A weather theme has such rich vocabulary - if you haven't added this theme to your repertoire, look no further than this blog post for lots of book, craft, and activity ideas below! I teamed up with Elena from @ms.bslp on Instagram to make these fun Weather Themed Lessons Plans for Speech Therapy which I share to my page too.
