I hope you are all staying safe and well during this time! I miss seeing you all!
I have added some free websites that you can access during this time at home. Also, I have added some ideas for activities for practicing articulation and language. Please feel free to email me with any questions. I am available and here for you if you need anything!
A good activity for all students, regardless of IEP goals, is to have them recall one (or a couple) things that they did that day. This could take place before lunch (to give you a chance to make lunch:) ) or sometime in the afternoon or evening. Ask your child to write a word or sentence, and/or draw a picture (depending on their skill level) of 1-3 (again depending on how difficult providing 1 would be for your child) things that they did that morning/day. It could be anything that they did - brushed teeth, read a book with parent, played catch with a sibling, colored, etc. When they are done writing/drawing, have them tell you what they wrote/drew. This part especially can be used to practice specific skills that your child is working on - artic: have them use their best clear, big speech sounds to tell about their word/sentence/picture; language: have them describe, using multiple details the activity or item that they wrote/drew about; grammar: have them develop several sentences, using correct pronouns, verb tenses, and sentence structure.
