Now that Christmas is over, itâ€™s time to think about back to work therapy ideas. Odds are, your kiddos are going to still be stuck on Christmas and want to tell you all about it.Â Hereâ€™s a few ideas to incorporate their Christmas (and your Christmas leftovers) into your therapy room.
- Sequencing- Have them sequence their Christmas break. This can be done written or verbally. You can work on organizational skills in both conversation and written.
- Thank you notes- Write thank you notes to gift givers to practice written language skills (organization, sentence structure, word structure, etc.).
- Gift bags- Fill the bag with random objects. Have the client pull the objects out one at a time and talk about them using descriptor terms. You can also have the client guess what you are going to pull out by describing the object to them.
- Tissue paper- Tear into small pieces and use for sensory bins. Different colored paper could work for other holidays as well.
- Lotion- Smear on plate, desk, or other surface to practice spelling/sight words.
- Candles- A sensory experience. Describe the smell, colors, etc.
Good luck and have a great week back! Happy Speeching! 🙂
