Use the Christmas Tree for Speech Therapy Carryover

Christmas treeIt is such fun to be an itinerant speech therapist during the holidays because I get a peek into all the beautifully decorated homes. Last week I was working with a second grader on his /th/ sound while his mom and little sister decorated an enormous Christmas tree. At the end of our session, we moved to the tree and played a little guessing game using our sound. We alternated  choosing an ornament for the other to guess and gave clues using the /th/ sound. “This has a snowman, this has the biggest scarf,” etc.  My friend and his sister had such fun with the activity that as I left they were in a heated discussion of which ornament was being described!
