Valentine's Hidden Picture Puzzles
Hidden picture activities are always a crowd pleaser! This set includes a word bank with visuals, so it makes it accessible for a variety of ages. I love using these types of active-independent activities while student's "wait their turn" in some of my larger-than-I-wish-they-were groups. Extend this activity by making it a vocabulary and expressive language lesson. Some ideas for sentence frames:Target location/prepositions/where questions: The _______ is next to/under/above the ______. **use with this month's preposition data strips!

Mini Heart Erasers
(with an organizing tin!)
Do you love mini objects? They're such a fun and simple way to change up your go-to therapy materials. I like the use them as game pieces, hidden in sensory bins, or inside of another object to target functional language.
This month's @thesparkinnovations Sequencing Cards set is focused on "Baking a Cake." This a fun and versatile topic that most kids can really get into! With cooking there is SO much that can go awry, but it's always so much fun. Use this set to engage in conversations about their experiences with cooking, as well as problem solving the various things that could go wrong. As an extension activity involving problem solving, check out the video "Salt: A Thanksgiving Story" on YouTube. Check out past blogs for other ideas of how to use your growing collection of sequencing cards!
