It’s always a challenge to make therapy fun and engaging. But this week I think I scored. Since I live in the desert, going on a Fall leaf hunt doesn’t happen. The leaves don’t fall much yet, and most of the trees here are not very big. So I started buying fake leaves from Walmart and Michaels. Then I place a bunch of the leaves in a bin with a bunch of objects. I get the objects from toys I have saved from my children over the years, and from the Lakeshore Alphabet Teaching Tubs.
I have the children put on googly eye rings (found at Walmart during holidays) and play iSpy.
“I spy with my little eyes…….”. If they are older, I also have them use the object in a sentence. This can also be used to answer questions related to the object, what you can do with the object, name categories, etc. The kids had a blast, and I had a fun session as well.
