I don’t know about you all but the last month has been absolute craziness at my school. In between snow days, special holidays, meeting make-ups, and standardized testing my speech and language sessions have been just a bit disjointed. Last week, I found myself in between theme units. I finished up most of my St. Patrick’s Day things but I didn’t want to start my Spring unit yet. While browsing Pinterest, I saw this great idea for musical chairs by Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas. I adapted the game to fit my students’ objectives and they had a ton of fun.
We played three versions of this game.
- For my speech students, we played musical chairs in the traditional way by walking around the chairs until the music stopped. The child who was “out” then had to say their sound 3 times
- I also printed up some question cards for my students who are working on answering questions and sentence construction. Again, we played traditional style and the child who was “out” had to pick a question to answer. The child who “won” had to pick 3 questions to answer. You can grab a copy of my question cards for FREE (click on picture).
- I also had a chance to play this game with some of my students who are just beginning to develop play skills. This was great chance for them to work on turn taking and following directions.
The best thing about this game is that it can be easily adapted for any speech and language objective your students are working to develop.
Do you play any movement games in your sessions?
