Buggy Speech Therapy

Although we have had a slightly cooler Spring here in College Station, this has not kept the bugs from making their way onto our sidewalks, outside lawn furniture, and gardens. This is the time of year when I love to bring nature into the speech therapy session! A few weeks ago, my therapy plan included a bug catcher, fake bugs (I am not a big fan of real ones.), nets, butterflies, Elefun game, and interactive books. For one student who is working on the “w” sound, we let our bugs go swimming to work on the word “water”. There are many goals that can be targeted when working with bugs and Spring vocabulary.

Taking the bugs out of the bug container.
The bugs are going for a swim! Targeting “w” in “water”.


Interactive book- Going on a Spring Walk
Collection of bugs – A fun way to learn about attributes/describing: size, color, crawl/flies/jumps
Such a fun game! We practiced core words: mine, got it, look, catch, in. Then you can count the butterflies and sort them by color.
Interactive book that I sing while reading it. Targets spatial concept “on” and saying short phrases or sentences.
