Lions and tigers and elephants, oh my! I’m a big fan of thematic therapy, and safari week is one of my favorites. Students made these binoculars in less than two minutes from materials I already had (a paper towel roll, washi tape and some string). They searched for animals around the speech room and then practiced their describing skills (what does it look like, is it big or small, how would it feel…). You can use these DIY binoculars with any type of goal: searching for expected behaviors, action cards or specific target sounds, for example. You can also work on inferencing (“I’m looking for an animal that has a long neck and eats leaves”) and so much more!
About me:
I have been a school-based speech-language pathologist since 2008, first in Virginia and now in Georgia. I received my undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Virginia. I have worked primarily with preschool through middle school, but also have experience at an alternative high school working with students with emotional and behavioral disorders. I also enjoy sharing ideas on Instagram, creating materials for Teachers Pay Teachers, and supervising clinical fellows.
