Funniest Home Videos App

Pull out the ipads! I have a fun app for you to incorporate into your therapy room this week!

During a rough week, I love a good you-tube video or a rerun of America's Funniest Home Videos on my DVR. Laughing makes life so much fun, so let's add some of that humor into the speech room!

This week I came across the free app version of AFHV! It's got a list of featured videos as well as several 'channels.'

So how can we use it in therapy? I made these story re-telling strips to use while we watch a clip. The students watch the clip and then retell the story. My students need a lot of support to retell all the important parts, so using these strips really helps!

We glued them into blank paper. I forgot to grab a picture of the kids' version, but here was my example!

Grab the app for free here in the itunes store.
Grab the download here for free!

What do you think? How else can we use this free app to target speech or language?
