I’m breaking this post up into preschool, elementary, and middle school interests, so you can find what best suits your speech and language caseload!
Valentine’s Day Speech Therapy Activities for Preschool
First, check out these Valentine’s Day Following Directions task cards. I created these to work on following directions with a variety of embedded concepts. These task cards are great for preschool through first grade. This Valentine’s Day activity includes 68 following directions cards that target the following concepts:
- inclusion concepts (all, and, all but one)
- sequence concepts (first, second, middle, last)
- location / spatial concepts e (first, second, middle, last), location (top, bottom, between, next to, in front of, behind)
- temporal / time concepts (before, after, then, at the same time)
Second, you will absolutely love my Valentine’s Day Articulation Activities for k and g. These Valentine’s Day activities for articulation are SO MUCH FUN! These activities can be paired with motivating tools such as daubers, mini erasers, stampers, sensory bins, or magnetic wands and chips.
These hands-on Valentines Day activities and crafts for speech and language therapy include:
