Flexible St. Patrick's Day Activities

these St. Patrick's Day activities can easily target various speech goals

St. Patrick's Day is on Sunday, and we began celebrating in my speech room this week. Today we did a few activities that are easily adaptable for different goal areas.

This bingo dauber page was the perfect reinforcement to have on hand. My artic students were able to make a dot after each correct phoneme production. We had races to see who could fill their shamrock up first. Other students raced me! If they produced their sound in error, I got to make a dot instead of them :) Gotta keep thing interesting!

Another great articulation activity that targets /l/ is this Lucky Leprechauns game from If Only I Had Super Powers. It is so cute and my students thought it was hilarious. I also used it with some of my language kiddos, forming sentences to describe the pictures or explaining why it is a funny picture. Go download this game - it's a freebie!

And of course, an open-ended board game is something that can be used with all students. You can download my free game here!

For most students, a discussion of some sort occurred about what St. Patrick's Day is...why clovers and horseshoes are lucky...where leprechauns live...Early elementary students are so entertaining to work with! Be sure to check back for more St. Patrick's Day activities throughout this week.
