Preschool Speech and Language Activities for Home Packets

 

Update September 21st 2020

Use these interactive language activities for distance learning

Many of us have recently taken a crash course on using teletherapy to accommodate students learning from home. GOOD NEWS! You can adapt these activities for distance learning also. Use the cut out activity and pieces over Zoom to “play” and keep your student engaged in an environment where they can otherwise be easily distracted.

To address the needs of students (and many parents too!) working from home, I have put together some fun interactive activities that reflect the same concepts and goals as found in the printable materials. They feature movable pieces and audio prompts and allow the student to take the activity “in their own hands” for a while.

Play Boom decks on tablets or other devices (and send a link for parents to use the same activity at home!)

Another spark of genius trending right now is the use of the backgrounds and cut outs for “green-screen” activities. This really brings the activity to “life” and makes YOU the star of the show!

Are you a Speech Language Pathologist scrambling to find quality Preschool Speech and Language Activities for home packets? Or quickly upskilling to deliver teletherapy services for distance learning?

Schools and clinics are still trying to piece together reopening safely and also accommodating students who have elected to remain at home.  This “new normal” has offered up it’s own set of challenges of mainstreaming on-campus and virtual learning while ensuring that no child be left behind. Equipment availability, the functionality of technology, and getting parents, educators, and students all on the same page to name a few.

With no end date in sight, worry and uncertainty are a constant struggle for all. On the bright side, however, the world has come  together during this difficult time to form new and creative solutions to keep our children safe and on track.

I developed my range of preschool speech therapy activities packs in 2013 to meet the needs of busy Speech Language Pathologists. They have been used by hundreds of SLPs worldwide. They are great for working with young children in therapy because they are creative, fun and easy to use. But the truly magical ingredients in this range are the at-home connection provided by parent handouts and my most recent addition of interactive digital BOOM! card games!

I poured hours and hours of time into writing each packet. I clearly state each goal and explain step by step how the parent should guide and coach the child to succeed.

And while I could never have imagined or prepared for this situation, remarkably so many SLPs in the past months have told me that these packets are exactly what they need right now to meet the needs of their students with early language goals.

Under time pressures and with limited resources, you need a robust program that has stood the test of time and yet is uniquely positioned to help your families with activities for at-home practice.

These are high-quality downloads packed with concrete activities and home practice. You won’t need to waste precious time modifying activities or writing instructions each time for parents.

Send pages of the PDF by email as homework or on google classroom. Each packet has ten parent handouts. Five use the printable materials contained in the packet and five use everyday routines to target language goals.

Everything is done for you – just print and go!
