Don't get me wrong, we are also reading Thanksgiving books and making coffee filter turkey or turkey puppets with artic feathers as well, but some days, I just need an easy-piecey lemon squeezy idea that requires no prep and can be used all day long. Thank goodness for my SmartBoard!
Awhile back, I found a free Thanksgiving koosh ball game where you throw the ball at a picture on your SmartBoard and a blank screen popped up where you could write in whatever you wanted. At the time, I thought about making each slide full of words with the students' targeted sounds, but since most of my groups have different kids with different sounds, as well as most groups have a language student as well, this would be very difficult. So I just made each slide contain various amounts of points. That way, before a student throws a koosh ball (or in this case, a stuffed beanie baby turkey) at the board......
When I went to post this idea, I saw the templates are no longer free in Teachers Pay Teachers, so I opened up Notebook on my computer and made one to share that includes the points and everything. If you are fortunate like I am to have a SmartBoard, then feel free to download this and use it in your therapy room. I will be making some for Christmas soon, so email me if you would like a copy of that when it is done.
