Have you ever thought about using chalk in your speech room? I went to big lots and bought a small set of chalk for just a few dollars. I also decided to ask my school's principal for permission to use the chalk. Obviously, I got permission and everything magically happened from there.
What can you do with chalk you ask?
I had my students work on following directions (therapist providing directions) and prepositions, but I realized as we were playing outside you could also target a variety of other goals.
- color recognition
- letter recognition
- shapes recognition
- turn taking
- verbs/ actions
- expressive and receptive language (having students draw based on directions from another student)
I'm sure there are many more activities I haven't though of just yet. Comment below with any other ideas you may have.
These are two of my students having a blast playing outside today.
I am including a few affiliate links below for some different kinds of chalk, just in case ordering online is easier. I wish I had thought of buying chalk with holders, would have made for a cleaner day.
Hope you enjoy
