A tennis ball and articulation......fetching idea!

Hot Potato Articulation or Language....or just another form of Silent Ball!

This week is full of paperwork and conferences so I pulled out a can of tennis balls and told the kids we were playing Speech Ball. I told them that they were competing with other groups to see how many turns they could throw the ball to one another in group without dropping it. Every time that they caught the ball I would "toss" a word to them with their sound in it or with their vocabulary skill and they would have to respond before they could throw the ball to the next person. It was easy to differentiate and all of them seemed to enjoy this easy therapy idea! Another form is to set a timer for an undisclosed amount of time. When the timer goes off, the student that is holding the ball is out of the game. The last one standing (or sitting) is the winner. 

Again....easy therapy, but effective.
