Sweet Summer Speech

Working ESY? Seeing private clients this summer? Extra hours in the clinic? Make your sessions a little sweeter…with a lemonade stand!
My 7 year old daughter just finished first grade and was so excited to set up her own lemonade stand in our neighborhood. She was planning out all the details, creating signs, and making lists of all the items she needed.

Then we took a trip to Target  just in case the Dollar Spot had any cute additions. Which of course they did! And she isn’t even the one who pointed them all out to me, begging me to buy them. I saw them and excitedly showed them to her (picture)…

and once again I spent way more than I planned to when I walked into Target that day.

I convinced myself it would be worth it…I mean I’m an SLP. We can make a therapy activity out of pretty much any supply, right?! Then my creative juices were flowing and I thought, “What a great spring or summer therapy activity!”
So, I sat down at my computer and got to work on this new TpT product

The product includes activities to work on various speech and language skills including:
*articulation (initial /l/ pictures and sight words included plus editable ‘lemons’ to add your own images/target sounds)
*story comprehension (download the preview here for a free sample)
*problem solving
*conversational skills
*vocabulary skills of describing and same/different
**plus a list of books to help you expand the theme
But I think the part that will be the most fun is setting up a lemonade stand with the students – let them help you plan it all out, decorate signs, make the lemonade, decide the best day/time/location to have the stand…

the kids won’t even know how much they are learning!
