It is that time again….time for my monthly linky party!! Check out how I use common objects in my speech room! Keep reading and view below to see how other SLPs/bloggers use them as well!
This month's object: sentence strips!!
There are several ways I use sentence strips in my therapy room. I can use them on post-its, index cards, dry erase boards, on top of worksheets, or even using the following products:
Why use sentence strips?! They are a great way to encourage expanded utterance length!! I like to use cloze sentences on them to model how to respond or describe using expanded utterances. Some samples of teaching the following targets:

- Sequencing/transition words: “First _____” “Finally _____”
- Categorization: “The _____ is a fruit.”
- Describing: “The _____ is yellow.” “The _______ has a wheel.”
