Want 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.
