There are so many ways you can support your student's speech and language skills at home! Reading books together is a great place to start. Many games you might have at home will also facilitate language skills such as Hedbanz, Scattegories, Catch Phrase, 5 Second Rule, Zingo, and Spot It! Have a conversation with your child about a specific topic that might be related to some of the content they are learning for their other subjects. Just ask them different types of WH questions such as WHERE, WHEN, and HOW. Have a scavenger hunt at home to find things that begin with a certain letter of the alphabet. Turn off the TV and video games and just PLAY!! Pintrest also has a lot of great ideas to support speech and language at home.
The website below provides all students with 20 days’ worth of learning journeys that span the content areas so you can keep your students actively engaged in learning while schools are closed.
