I'd like to share with you an idea that came to me today...you may already have the materials in your home to do this as well.
While I was thinking of the upcoming week and the Arctic themed materials I purchased from Jenn Alcorn over at www.crazyspeechworld.blogspot.com, Carrie Manchester at http://carriesspeechcorner.blogspot.com, & Jenna Rayburn at www.speechromnews.blogspot.com I decided to go through the collection of National Geographic, National Wildlife, and Ranger Rick Jr. magazines we have in our home in hopes of finding real-life pictures of arctic animals....my children love nature and learning about different kinds of animals. There were quite a few pictures of arctic animals that I'll be targeting with my students in the coming weeks. So I am going to cut and laminate the pictures from the magazines to use during therapy to help with identifying, labeling, and comparing/contrasting the animals.
Texas is a LONG way from the Arctic and with the pictures I hope to continue to develop students' vocabulary as it relates to places/things outside of their everyday lives.
I hope you find this idea useful...perhaps it triggers an idea for you? If so, please share your comments below. I'd love to hear from you!
Thank you for stopping by!!
