Peek At My Week 4/4

This week, we had tons of fun with a variety of materials! First, I decided to use Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs by Judi Barrett as my book this week. 

I decided this immediately after seeing Felice's adorable freebie! I had to adapt it a little because I didn't have string, but I just used strips of paper and it worked just fine. I made a few copies of the food items and cut them all out. I let each student choose four items for their mobiles and they really liked that part. For my articulation kids, I read the story and had them listen for words with their sounds - when they found one, I wrote it on the cloud for take home practice. If they were working on language skills, we wrote those concepts on the cloud. 

For some of my younger kids, I broke out the plastic eggs and put little items in them. I don't know what it is about these eggs, but kids love opening them. It was a great way to get a lot of trials and language!

I found these spinning tops at Target and picked one up. 

I wrote point values on paper and put them on the floor. I let the kids spin the tops and try to land on a point value. I will say the tops aren't great at spinning far, but they still had fun! You can definitely use this as a reinforcer to target pretty much anything!

What did you do this week?
