Let’s talk Speech therapy treatment ideas for mini objects! As you know, I’m a big fan of making mini object boxes! You can create an awesome resource to use in literally hundreds of ways! Literally make it once and use it is a different way each month. You can see how I created my articulation boxes and my apraxia boxes here. Today I’m sharing eight ways to use the sets for speech sound practice with young learners. Amazon affiliate links included for your convenience.
Use a grabber toy and put the objects in any container. Pick an item to grab (build language by describing one they have to find using attributes or functions) and then try to pick it up with the grabber toy. Get as many repetitions as you can! Talk about which things are hard and which are easier to pick up! Similar grabber toy here.
I have a lot of little guys who are super into transportation and you can pair any vehicle with the mini objects. Use a dump truck or airplane and add the objects to it, deliver them somewhere else, and then pick them all back up again!
Goodwill is my jam. I love this big shark I picked up. It’s empty and we love to fill it up with mini objects. Talk about what the shark ate or what he doesn’t like to eat! You can do the same with any animal toy or grab the mini trash cans at Dollar Tree that look like animals!
Speaking of Goodwill. I got this American Girl Doll Sized Fridge. It’s really fun to fill the shelves with the mini objects and talk about what’s in the fridge, what you want to eat, or what belongs/doesn’t belong in the fridge!
This Mystery box from Lakeshore can be used for tons of things, but it’s create to hide mini objects inside and pull them out.
Since it’s spring time, pull out your eggs and fill them with your mini objects! You can hide them around the office or school and go hunting for them!
Pull out your trusty Crocodile Dentist and put one object in the middle. Say “eat the __” while you push down the tooth each time. PS – You NEED crocodile dentist in your life if you don’t have it!
