She's back with another thrifty share inspired by pinterest

One challenge in therapy is motivating my students to work on goals that are less than thrilling for them. Auditory recall has been a big challenge this year. How can reciting information be exciting after the thrill of copying the "teacher" is done? Well, I found these voice sticks on pinterest a long time ago for articulation and thought it might be handy. I made them back in November and promptly forgot all about using them for those groups. The bag caught my eye a few weeks ago while my kids were complaining about the recall task. Robot voices make anything more fun..........


 I added a few action sticks to add even more entertainment after the first attempt with these went well. The kids pick up a stick before I give them the target sentence. They have to use the voice or perform the action as they repeat the sentence. We do a new stick for every task.


You really can't go wrong with craft sticks and a Sharpie.
