Winter Sports Theme in Speech Therapy

We’re back this week to talk about another versatile winter therapy theme: Winter Sports! In colder parts of the world, the arrival of snow brings opportunities for new adventures and trying new things; which means, it opens up lots of chances to bring this theme to life in therapy.  What sports do you think of when you think of “winter sports?” For me the first that come to mind are skiing, snowboarding, sledding and ice skating, but there are so many other amazing activities to teach our students about and learn about with them!  Here are some ideas to target winter sports...

Arctic Animals Theme in Speech Therapy

One of the things I love about Winter themes is their flexibility! Now that the hustle and bustle of the holiday season is over, it’s nice to have a few themes prepped and ready to go that I could use with my own discretion over the next month or so that don’t have to follow a calendar like Halloween, Thanksgiving, and December holidays might.  Arctic Animals is a great winter theme because of its versatility!

Winter Themed Lesson Plans for Speech Therapy

Winter Themed Lesson Plans   Here we are folks, JANUARY! What a year 2020 has been to say the least.  The stretch of school between Thanksgiving and Holiday break goes by so quickly, and it’s definitely a time of year when I need easy, low-prep, therapy options because things feel busier than ever leading up to Christmas.  Winter is not my favorite season, but it definitely opens up some amazing opportunities for thematic therapy. I love the inclusivity of seasonal themed therapy and how I can utilize these therapy ideas for months! Our “snowy” season here can sometimes last from...
