Next week for Large Group we get to meet George the Turtle! I will be doing Large Group in both classrooms on Tuesday and Wednesday.

We will be looking at these pictures of fruits and vegetables and working on categorizing. They are some of George's favorite, and least favorite things to eat! The Budget SLP has another wonderful post that has 20+ resources for working on classification or categorizing! So check out that post and try a few of the activities, especially if you have a little one who will be going to kindergarten next year.

We will first read this social story about how to ask someone to play. We will focus on the steps of asking someone to play, then we will practice it with each other. To help us practice each other's names and how to get someone's attention, we will play a game of pass the ball as well. Since we will be focusing on social skills, our handout talks about greeting others--another great social skill some of our kiddos are working on. You can get an English or Spanish version. It is from Super Duper.

Next week we will be doing fun things with our "clicking camera" sound. Here is our learning card:
It's a nice way to do auditory bombardment, something I talk about often in my posts about the sound of the month. After we read the book, we will practice some words that have our "k" sound it in, especially some actions that have our "clicking camera" sound. Next, we will play 'move like this.' We will try to think of actions or animals to move like, but they have to have our "k" sound in it (kick, kangaroo, cough, catch, kitten, etc.). We will focus on actions and past tense-ed. Our weekly handout talks about how to teach children past tense. It is from Speech and Language Kids, again! :) If you need some action cards, try these from Testy Yet Trying.
