Sneak Peek at new Beach Unit!

I had been toying with the idea of creating some language units, so I decided to go head first into it, which is how I tend to do things...just dive in, which is not advice I'd give to anyone.  I hope to get this uploaded this week, but in the meanwhile you can have a sneak peek!

I would call this a "whole language" unit that is Beach themed and will come with 2 open ended games and 5 language targets using task cards. Language skills targeted are Attributes, Compare/Contrast, Thinking/Reasoning, Inferring/Problem solving, and Follow Directions.  Here are a few pictures to give you an idea of all the goodness inside!

The two games are a board game and a card game: 

Attributes Task Cards:

Compare and Contrast Task Cards:

Thinking and Reasoning Task Cards:

Inferring and Problem Solving:

Following Directions:

This will be sold as a Beach Themed Language Unit in my Teachers pay Teachers store and my NEW Teachers Notebook store (Little Shop of SLP). Look for it later this week.  It will sell as a download for $6.00.

I am very excited to share this with you because there are so many ways you can use this!  

This is how I do whole language therapy!


  1. That is really the themes and all the ways you work language into it.

    1. Thanks for your verbal support! It is much appreciated!

  2. It definitely looks interesting. It would give a lot of mileage for the esy kiddos. What age range will it be geared towards

    1. Amy, it isn't geared toward a specific age group per se. For example, the following directions tasks are appropriate for per-K, but it would also be great for your Kindergarteners and 1st graders, if they are behind/delayed in memory skills.

      Another example is with the attributes cards you may only want to ask, "what is it?" (labeling) or "what do you do with this?" (functioning), etc. Instead of all 5 questions on the card.

      It can be so versatile I'd say it is practical for any age group in K-5, if you have kids working on those targets. You just simply adapt the task cards to your needs.

      Thanks, that was a wonderful question to address here!
