At the end of the school year, I gave my students some beachy inspiration. I got some affordable kinetic sand kits online that include a box, the kinetic sand and a few ocean-animal sand toys. I added some sea creatures, seashells and glass beads to make it a mini-beach. The mini-sandcastle mold was the best part—the kids loved how much easier it was to make castles out of kinetic sand than beach sand. All of my kiddos, from preschool to fifth grade, loved it. We took turns describing the sand to our partners using our EET (Expanding Expression Tool) beads and playing “I Spy.” The kids begged to stay in speech for just one more minute!
About me: I am a bilingual speech-language pathologist at an elementary school in the Santa Ana (California) United School District. This is my second year as an SLP, and I am loving it! For fun I enjoy meditating, doing yoga and going to the beach with my sweet 7-year-old daughter.
