This past week was pumpkin filled! We enjoyed working on speech and language skills while making lots of crafts. Here are a few of my favorites from the week!
- Pumpkin faces
This craft was super easy to prep and was lots of fun for the little ones. This was great for language goals, especially for those learning body parts! This craft was also great for describing functions, requesting, following directions, and spatial concepts. Simply prep your pumpkin from construction paper and cut out body parts (eyes, ears, nose, mouth, arms/legs) from magazines. For more emphasis on body part/face vocab, you could also play the “Silly Faces” game with this activity.
2. The Legend of Spookly the Square Pumpkin
This book is new to me this year, but I absolutely love it! It is all about being different, and how being different isn’t a bad thing! I love the”surprise” ending! After reading this story, we made our very own square pumpkins.
Another simple craft! This was a great reinforcer for those kids working on artic goals (I had them earn pieces by working on targets), and those who were able to handle more “drill” type work. Everyone enjoyed this book and craft!
Happy October! What are your October plans?
