It’s Dr. Seuss time! Bring the Lorax into your sessions with this easy and adorable craft! With just a few supplies, you can use this as a reinforcement activity for speech or language therapy productions. Crafts are great activities to do with groups because the students can be working on them while waiting for their next turn.
I found this cute Dr. Seuss craft at GluedtoMyCraftsBlog.com and knew I wanted to share it with you!
What you need:
- paper plates (one for each student)
- orange and yellow construction paper, cardstock, or tissue paper
- googly eyes or white paper and a black marker
- orange or brown pom poms (one for each student)
- glue or glue sticks
What to do for each Lorax:
- Give each student a paper plate.
- Give each student a piece of orange paper to rip into pieces while waiting for their turns.
- Allow the students to glue a piece of orange paper onto their plates after each speech or language turn.
- Once their plates are covered in orange, trace their hands on yellow paper and cut them out or let them cut them out, depending on their age and skill level.
- Have them cut out eyebrows for the Lorax using scraps of the yellow paper.
- Have the students earn the pom pom nose and googly eyes (or white paper circles with black circles drawn on them).
- Let them glue the eyes, eye brows, mustache (using the hand cut outs) and nose on their Lorax.
- Articulation practice – Give the students a piece after correct productions of their target sounds.
- Correct /l/, /r/, /sp/, or /tr/ sounds – Give the students a piece for each correct production of “Lorax” or “I speak for the trees.”
- Language skills practice – The students earn a piece of their Lorax for completing each language task (e.g., naming two Dr. Seuss characters, naming three types of trees).
