You Will Love These Valentine’s Therapy Materials

Valentine's Day Cards BoxWant some fun, useful and very inexpensive therapy materials?

Pick up a box of Valentine’s cards! They can be turned into customized therapy materials in just a matter of minutes! And did I mention how inexpensive they are? I found boxes of cards with licensed characters on them at the dollar store!

Here are some ideas of what you can do with them…

  • Make matching sets to work on “same” and “different”.
  • Create stimulus cards to use in your sessions. You can write words on them for articulation practice or language activities (e.g., antonyms or multiple meaning words). Fold them in half and let the students pick them out of a bag, bowl, or small box.
  • Add numbers to the cards to tell the students how many responses to give, spaces they move, or points they earn.  More specific instructions for this activity can be found at the last link below.

    I bought little $1 boxes of chocolates. I plan to take all the chocolates out of the boxes and cut them in half. Each student will have the opportunity to predict what’s inside each chocolate. We can work on pronouns and the copula (“I think there is caramel inside”) and predicting/inferencing skills plus overall expressive language skills. Then I plan to bring in paper, stickers, and candy hearts to make Valentine’s Day boxes for the kids to fill with hearts and take home.
