30+ Free Wintery Resources for Speech and Language Therapy

    We haven't seen a bit of snow in my part of Virginia this year. This is a peek of my neighbors' snowmen taken in 2011. 


My most popular posts in 2013 were my lists of links so here are more than 30 links to resources for winter.

If you are looking for something to do on those first few days back, check out these New Year's Day activities. 
  • We're Thinking About A New Year is FREE at Ladybug's Teacher Files. Work on this together in a small group to incorporate predicting, time/seasonal concepts, complex wh-questions, retelling, and more. 

There are hundreds, maybe thousands, of links to activities suitable for speech and language therapy that incorporate a winter theme. Here are just a few. 
  • A lot of work, but very cute Winter Dramatic Play at L. C., SLPBuild a snowman, ice skate, make some hot chocolate. 
  • Hot Cocoa Speech from Busy Bee Speech can be used with a variety of speech and language activities. Play this with real marshmallows. 
  • The Mitten, The Hat, and The Three Snow Bears by Jan Brett can be found on-line at We Give Books.org.  Jan Brett also has printable graphics and activities at janbrett.com
  • The First Grade Parade's Mitten Loads of Fun includes a very cute downloadable blend activity for students practicing /l/ blends.  She also created an adjective activity for beginning readers and an activity for making predictions. The math and writing activities could be used to ask questions and make comparisons. Use the Mitten Math word problems for articulation carry-over. 
  • A search for "winter" at TpT revealed 95 free activities for speech therapy. Topics included inferences, pronouns, articulation, sequencing and so much more. 
  • Print Make a Snowman Game at Activity Village. Students can practice saying their target phoneme the number of times on the die. Work as teams or individually. Change the rules to meet the needs of your students. 
  • Three printable winter books can be found at Carl's Corner by clicking on Little Book Lane.  
  • Build a snowman and sing Ten Little Snowmen at Starfall.com.  

Enjoy and stay warm!
