Turkey’s Eggcellent Easter, written by Wendi Silvano, is a fun story that has Turkey sneakily participating in an Easter egg hunt while trying to win the eggstra special prize!

Easter Grammar Activities for Speech Therapy
Your speech therapy students will love these Easter-themed grammar activities! If you are working on skill areas such as verb+ing, prepositions, plurals, and past tense, be sure to take a look at this fun resource.
Carrot cut-outs can be added to sensory bins, and play dough smash mats are included for extra fun! These activities will be the perfect addition to your Easter-themed speech and language units.
Easter Following Directions Activities
These Easter-themed following directions task cards are the perfect way to work on following spoken directions and understanding embedded basic concepts. Even better, it contains adorable clip art with an Easter theme!
I recommend printing the cards, laminating them, and cutting them out. This will allow you to reuse them each year. If you are short on time, you could also place them in a binder.
First, your student must listen to the spoken direction. Next, they must interpret, recall, and then follow the instruction. Each task card will contain a concept as well. For example, your student might be asked to “point to the flower that is BETWEEN the jellybeans.”
This following directions resource includes 82 cards that target the following concepts:
- inclusion concepts: all, and, all but one
- sequence concepts: first, second, middle, last
- location concepts: top, bottom, between, next to
- time concepts: before, after, then, at the same time
- correlative conjunctions: both…and, either…or, neither…nor, not only… but also
Please note, these task cards are also included in a following directions holiday bundle.
Egg, Carrot, Chicks, and Bunny Pop-Its
Do your students love using pop-its in speech therapy? They provide an easy way to get a TON of articulation trials in during speech therapy! Your student can simply say a target articulation word, then press the bubble to hear the POP!
This Easter Pop Its Set contains a green egg, orange carrot, yellow chick, and pink bunny.
Your OT might also love it if you turn this into a fine motor activity! One of my favorite COTAS that I used to co-treat with would place marbles in the spaces, then have students take the marbles out using tongs.
This provided such a fun way to work on core vocabulary such as more, in, and out. Just make sure to only try this with students who do not mouth objects, of course!
Bunny Game for Speech and Language
This Jumping Jack Game by Goliath is a ton of fun and can be paired with any engaging speech therapy activities. This game will be very motivating for your younger students- preschool through second grade. It can be used in small groups or during individual sessions.
Your student could practice a target articulation word, or answer a question, then pull out a carrot. You never know exactly when Jack the bunny will jump! If he does jump when you pull your carrot, you want to try to catch him to win the game! If no one catches the bunny, try counting all of the carrots. The player who has earned the most carrots is the winner.
Carrot Jump Rope
I’m a big fan of using movement as a way to keep my speech therapy students focused during our sessions! If you have enough space, or if you can head outside, try incorporating these carrot jump ropes into your session!
The handles are carrot-shaped- too much fun! I did find the rope a little long and wound it around the handle a few times when needed.
You would love to pair the carrot jump ropes with this free following directions activity! Directions include embedded concepts such as before, after, first…then, and first…next. You will also need to have a die on hand for this fun activity!
First, your student will roll to choose a direction. Then, your student will follow the direction. An example might be, “First, say ‘carrot’. Then, hop like a bunny!”
Another easy idea? If your student is working on articulation, he can say a target word 3x, then jump 3x using his carrot jump rope!
