Egg-citing Speech Therapy Activity
I am excited to share with you an eggciting therapy activity. I got this idea from some colleagues of mine in San Diego. I love this idea and all its implication.
Supplies for this speech activity:
- plastic eggs
- egg carton
- small erasers or toys
What kind of speech activities and goals can you work on?
Here are some ideas of thing that I have done with these eggciting eggs.
- Working on 2-4 word repetitive phrases. “I open the egg”, “I pick this one”, “Pick the pink egg”,” I close the egg”, etc.
- Categorization: I have gotten a little eggcited and I actually have a few sets of eggs.
- I have one set that is food. I use this to practice labeling as well as grouping within the food category. I am so eggcited, as I just purchased the fast food erasers from amazon.com.
- Another set I have is vehicles. We talk about whether the vehicle goes in the sky, water, or on land. For my little ones, we practice making sounds with our vehicles.
- Animals, animals, and more animals! I could probably have a few sets of animals. In my current animal set, I have a few animals that are pets, live in the ocean, and/or live on a farm. We work on labeling the animals and putting them in groups. For my minimally verbal and young ones, we make animals sounds.
- Multisyllabic word set. Perfect for working on multisyllabic words and length of utterance.
- When a child opens the egg, we practice labeling, describing, categorization, and function. This can easily be altered according to the level of the student.
