Mother’s Day Traditions – BT Edition

BT Mothers DayMother's Day is a time to celebrate the women in our lives who raised, inspired, and taught us so many invaluable life lessons! Many families have a common tradition for Mother's Day - whether it's a special brunch, dinner, or activity to celebrate "Mom." At Bilingual Therapies, our team comes from a variety of different backgrounds, which is great for story-telling and sharing different perspectives! This year, we wanted to celebrate Mother's Day by sharing the traditions from our office team members. Whether they celebrated these traditions when they were kids or if they've continued them until today, each team member felt a sense of nostalgia and warmth when describing their traditions.

Rain on the Brain

rainy day activitiesApril is traditionally a rainy month in much of the United States. Those showers may mean cloudy skies and a hard time going outside. This can be hard for students who are so excited to welcome a new season. Think outside of the box and work on ways to incorporate the rain into sessions which work on goals, skills, and actively engage students.  Perhaps you may want to ask families to send in rain gear so you may head outside. If that will not work, simply gather a bunch of old umbrellas to use with the kids. Read More »

Story Telling Games with Many Possibilities in Therapy

storytelling-therapy-sessionsImagine a simple game made of cubes which has little drawings on them. This game can not only be used to create unique stories, but also get kids to come out of their shells. The game is Rory's Story Cubes, and the original version has nine cubes with six different pictures on each one. To play, you roll the cubes and use each picture to help tell a unique story. The beauty of the game is that each person may see the cube slightly different. One person may see a man, but another may see someone running. The game has become so popular that there are now a wide variety of add-on sets. There are Rory’s Story Cubes set which focus on voyages, actions, and fantasia. In addition to this, there are currently a dozen mini three cube “mix it up” sets to add on to the other sets. If you have students who are fans of certain characters, be sure to check out more StoryWorld sets like Doctor Who, Adventure Time, and Batman. Read More »
