St. Patrick’s Day Fun!

Wow!  This past few weeks has flow by with all these fun St. Patrick’s Day activities.  Holidays help me with lesson planning and making new material.  I like to do different activities in therapy related to the upcoming holiday.  This helps the students learn and use new vocabulary terms and also addresses their communication goals through fun activities.  We started out the month by reading Leprechaun, Leprechaun What Do You See? and making rainbows!  I adapted this activity depending on my students communication skills and age.   I made it more challenging for some of my students and had them cut and count all the pieces needed to create the rainbow!


We read There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Clover by Lucille Colandro using the visuals to assist with comprehension and understanding of new vocabulary terms.  We followed up the reading by answering comprehension questions and sequencing everything the old lady swallowed!

Finally we celebrated by making St. Patrick’s Day treats – Shamrock Floats, Shamrock Freezes, and Shamrock Shakes!!!  They all looked delicious!  I made Shamrock Floats as a whole class in the preschool room.  My other students either made Shamrock Freezes or Shamrock Shakes depending on the students’ abilities and dietary restrictions.  Cheers!!!!!
