Flowers for Spring - Speech Activities Spring officially arrives March 20 and is a great topic to utilize with children during therapy. After a long winter full of snowmen, snowflakes, and winter holidays, it is finally time to add some fun and colors to the mix. Flower Pots That Go Together This activity can be tailored for many different skill sets. First, make some flower pots out of construction paper. This will be used for categories in a sorting game. Next, make a dozen or more long flowers to use with words being worked on. If you have a clip art program, this may help so you can print them out and laminate once finished. Your goal is to have three or four flowers in each of the flower pots during the activity.
- For younger children working on beginning sounds, you can place a word or picture on each of the flowers. One should also be placed on the flower pot. Their goal is to place all of the flowers that have beginning /r/ sound together. End sounds, or rhyming words are also perfect depending on the goals for the children you work with.
- Older children that are working on using descriptive words can have the flower pots with a specific item (pictures may help for some). Then, have a variety of descriptor flowers that will only fit with a specific word/flower pot. The opportunity to sort and think about works that can describe each noun will strengthen skills in this area.
