We have been having so much fun working on cause & effect in my therapy room!! We have been playing games involving expressing causes if given effects and listening to passages and answering questions using cause/effect. I have been wanting to do flip books for a while with my students. I decided cause/effect is a great opportunity to do so!!! Check out my example to show my students on what they were to make themselves!
How to make this?! Easy and a great way to also work on following directions!! Fold a piece of paper in half. Then cut the top piece down the middle! Label 1 side “cause” and the other side “effect.” I illustrated the cause and effect on the top pieces. Once you lift up each flap, I wrote the sentence based on the illustration.
After I showed my students mine, I gave each of them a cause written on a piece of paper. Some examples included:
- My pencil broke.
- There was a snowstorm.
- I forgot my lunch money.
- I left my bird's cage open.
- I was up late playing video games.
We also used my cause & effect graphic organizers from my Winter Graphic Organizers for SLP pack!
