Incorporating physical activity into my speech-language treatment sessions is a wonderful way to increase participation and interest in what we are working on. The best part is that you can do this inexpensively and with minimal prep time. I modified this inflatable pineapple tic-tac-toe game by placing stimulus cards in the holes and allowing the child to throw a ball. My kids love the excitement of playing with something unexpected and forget that they are even working.
This activity can target a variety of goals: articulation (note: stimulus cards by @speechymusings); following directions (“Throw the ball on the apple card. Before you throw the ball, touch your toes.”); verb tenses (“I am going to throw the ball. I threw the ball.”); categories (“Throw a ball on the animals”); attributes (“Throw the ball on something hot”); and social skills, such as taking turns and encouraging sportsmanship.
About me:
I work for a private practice in Houston. I enjoy traveling to each child to provide treatment in their home or preschool because I can educate families and demonstrate carryover activities. Additionally, sharing treatment inspiration and materials through Instagram and my blog (texasspeechmom.com) has become a true passion.
