First BlogTo start at the beginning of the blog hop just click on the picture above.  Now onto my tips and tricks!  So many of my students have limited expressive language, so I wanted to share some of my tips on how to work on these in therapy!

prepositionsEvery year I have students with language goals that include following directions with basic concepts, will use prepositional phrases and will verbally create or retell a story using key story elements.  So, I have included LOTS of different resources and ideas that help meet those goals!  (This post contains amazon affiliate links for your convenience).

prep phrasesI use the Learning To Sequence: 6-Scene Sets to work on story telling and explaining where things are located in the pictures.  There is one scene about baking cookies, so the students use the prepositions “in”, “on” and “out” when talking about the story sequence.

beachThis next therapy resource is probably one of my MOST requested items even with some of my 4th graders!  They are thematic picture scenes that have magnets of different people, items and animals that go with the scene.  I have the Create A Scene Magnetic Pet Shop, Magnetic Farm, Smethport Create-a-Scene – On The Go, and Smethport Create-a-Scene – Beach.  Not only are these affordable (under $10 each), they can also be used to teach categories and vocabulary.  We use these to work on following directions with spatial concepts (receptively) and (expressively), I will have students tell me where certain items are located.

The rest of my secret tips are on my youtube channel!  Check it out!!

Here is my secret letter that you need to enter for your chance to WIN a $50 and 2 $15 gift cards to TPT!  Who doesn’t love to win gift cards!?
