Elf on a Shelf Fun!

Other than the usual stuffed elf on a shelf and book, I was looking for a fun, "speechie" way to incorporate the elf into my speech room.  

After browsing on Amazon, I found these great products!!

Can you already see how "speechie" some of the above can be?!

  • Hide and Seek: can work on prepositions, answering questions, and following directions.
  • Naughty vs. Nice: well hello social skills!
  • Floor puzzle: you can give a piece of the puzzle each time students produce a target speech sound, students can guess what the puzzle will be using their predicting skills, and more.
  • Matching Game: KEEP READING!
You are in luck, I have the matching game and it is a great way to work on SO many speech and language skills.
This adorable game uses the elf on the shelf concept but if you aren't fan (I know many are scared, or just are not a fan!) that is OK! You can leave the "elf" in the box!

This game has TONS of elf images and the elves are doing different actions.  YES!  We can work on verb tenses, describing, prepositions, answering questions, and even the plural form of "elf!"
This is a regular memory matching game so students will easily know what to do.  This game also comes with "bonus" game cards which you can include in the game or leave out depending on your preference.
The game came with instructions on how to use the bonus cards but you can totally make up your own rules!  The wild card means students gets a bonus point, but you can also have it mean they have to answer a speech question, they can pick who goes next, or anything!

The lose a pair card means they have to hand back a matching pair they have already found.

The take elf card means they can hold the toy elf on a shelf.  Whenever a new student picks this card, that elf has to be handed over.  The student with the elf at the end of the game gets 4 bonus points.  Students with the most points (not necessarily matches) wins.  I like this fact because those with weaker memory skills still have a chance to catch up and win!
You can also use the elf toy for pretend play, following directions, working on prepositions, amd more!!

My students loved this game!  It was such a fun way to work on so many skills with one activity!

Turkey Claus Fun!

I was reading a new story to my students today and working on answering questions and I had an "ah ha!" moment!
I knew this book would be great for answering questions, predicting, sequencing, and Christmas vocabulary.  But.....this book is also great for using Story Grammar Marker!!

What is Story Grammar Marker??  It is an amazing program created by Mind Wing Concepts, Inc.  It uses manipulatives tools to teach students how to express important details in a story.  It is great for teaching story retelling or telling personal narratives.

Why is this book perfect for Story Grammar Marker?  Well, there's a problem, several attempts to solve the problem, and a solution to the problem.  The turkey has different emotions that he feels at the beginning, middle, and end.  You can very easy use the graphic organizers provided in this program to help students organize their thoughts while reading the story and/or after.  We worked together as a group completing the graphic organizer.  Then, my students got to take turns using their notes and the Story Grammar Marker manipulative to share the story in their own words.  My students did great!!
