I haven't done too many holiday themed activities, mainly because I'm new and trying to build up more activities that can be used year round. This is one that I couldn't resist, plus the clipart is from a fellow speechie (the dabbling speechie: www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/The dabblingspeechie)!
I give you: Pin the Conversation on the Heart!
This activity focuses on 4 areas of socials skills: compliments, asking for help, greetings, and ways to end a conversation.
I used 4 different colored conversation hearts with one for each area.
Visuals that can be hung on the wall and gone over prior to the lesson:
There is a page of 6 blank hearts (see below). Print 4 copies of each color (total of 24 hearts). Cut them out and place some of them on the wall. I recommend doing at least 2 different heart colors at a time.
There are 24 little squares with colored writing (see below for an example). The color of the writing corresponds to the heart color for easy identification for the SLP/teacher - but your students don't have to know that!
The idea is to "pin" the "conversation" on the heart! The green hearts are compliments so your students should be putting these phrases on green hearts. To make it more challenging, blindfold the student and have them head towards the wall. Once he/she has "pinned" the conversation on or close to a heart, you can discuss whether or not it's on the right color. There are 24 cards for each social skill.
