I was so excited to finally Periscope from the @SLPBloggerLive handle yesterday! I shared a video version of my “10 Ways to Play” posts for spring.
If you haven’t signed up for Periscope, you can do that here using your twitter handle. It’s a live streaming app where you can interact with a person who is scoping live! Keep in mind, it’s LIVE so there will be mistakes, but that is part of the fun! Here are my 10 ways to play with a felt garden!
You can find several different felt gardens on Etsy in the search here. Here is a quick recap of the ten ideas I highlighted.
1.Put in/Take out
2.Prepositions (above/below) pair that with the book Top and Bottoms.
3.Pretend Play: Using stuffed animals to move beyond procedural play.
4. Sequencing (seeds, water, grow, harvest)
5.Vocabulary and Core Words for AAC devices.
6.Sorting (by type of food, color, etc. )
8.Expanding play to a marketplace with money for older students.
9.Following Directions (conditional, positional, etc)
10.Verbs (plant, grow, water, pick)
I also love to use apps to build language and I jumped over to the @speechroomnews periscope channel and shared my very favorite app for garden themes, Dr. Panda’s Veggie Garden ($2.99).
It’s seriously fun and stuffed full of language!!!
Keep playing!!! Don’t forget to follow both @SpeechRoomNews and @SLPBloggerLive on Periscope so you don’t miss all the information!
