Spooky Spider Web for /S/-Blend Practice
I used it today to work on words that begin with /sp/. I gathered up a collection of Halloween stickers and wrote the target sentence at the bottom of the page. In this case, the sentence was "A spooky ______ on a spider web." I let the child choose 5-10 stickers. After she chose a sticker, we labeled it as a Spooky Ghost, or a Spooky Cat, or whatever fit the sticker. Then after the child stuck the sticker to the web, we said the target phrase together. We repeated the sequence for the remaining stickers. Finally, I had the child show me each sticker she placed on the web and say the target sentence independently.
I'm planning to use this activity to work on following directions, too. It'd be a great way to work on left/right, above/below and other prepositions.
Don't you just love activities that require very little prep and can be easily adapted for a variety of goals? I do!
