Happy (Early) Valentine's Day!

Ah, I love that Valentine's Day is only 1 day away! A look at some of the activities we've been doing in Mrs. Ludwig's Speech Room & a few freebies!

We have been mending broken hearts with Broken Heart Synonyms. Match games & taking turns finding a match for your given card. Here's a look:

For the kindergarteners and 1st graders working on phonological awareness, we worked through a rhyming coloring book of the most classic love poem of all time. Just give it a click and download:

At the end of the book is a rhyming exercise. Paste the words that rhyme with red, blue & you, and sweet on the correct pages.

An example of a finished product:

**A note on book assembly: the first page is the cover. Fold in half for the front and back. All other pages are folded in half and inserted into the cover. 
The side where the ends meet is placed directly into the fold of the cover. 
Staple when all pages are in place.**

And our versatile activity for articulation, language, and fluency: the lovely love elephant. You can find the template HERE!

5-10 sounds, set of questions, or tasks earned one piece of the elephant and at the very end, we glued them all together.

One of my little kids impressed me with his creativity. Given all the same pieces and a model elephant, he immediately requested to make a firebird instead. Take a look:

A true visionary! :)

Hope you enjoy and hope these activities are useful in your speech rooms, too!
