Speech Therapy Room Door Poster for SPRING!

Hi! I hope it is feeling like spring where you are.  It was 44 degrees here today… and it snowed the day before that! I’m desperate for the warmth of the sun to return.  I created a new spring poster for your speech therapy room to help myself feel better.  I think it worked.  As I sat down to create this poster, I was inspired by colorfully decorated Easter eggs, bright, soft, green grass, and hot, yellow sunshine.  Oh spring weather, please hurry.  I can’t wait for all the wonderful things that come with the change of season.  I think my favorite thing about spring is the return of life! Where I live, in the winter, everything looks so barren.  No leaves on trees, no green grass, and lots of brown everywhere you look.  Then once spring arrives, the green begins to return, the trees have their glorious leaves and colorful blossoms…it makes me so happy.

Speech Therapy Summer Bingo Game

What did you do this summer?  I will often ask this of my students when we meet again after 3 months apart.  Sometimes talking about past events is hard for our kids in speech therapy.  They often do not yet have mastery of how to use past tense verb forms to express their thoughts.
