Beach Ball Language!

Hey there SLP friends. This is a quick summer speech idea!

Grab a beach ball from the dollar bins at Target and make a therapy tool! I grabbed 3 and made one for literacy group! I kept the others to make throughout the school year. My literacy ball has phonological awareness skills in each color. The kids toss the ball in a circle. When they catch it they complete the action under their right hand.

I also created this beach ball to work on expressive language and syntax. I found this one in the summer section at Target. On each small circle I wrote a word. The students catch the ball and then use the two words under their hands to create a sentence.

Head over to the summer clearance and grab some beach balls to use in therapy this year!
